Both rocker Lenny Kravitz and veteran actor Toby Jones have joined the cast of the adaptation of “The Hunger Games” for Lionsgate.
Kravitz will play the role of Cinna, lead heroine Katniss Everdeen’s assigned fashion stylist for the highly ceremonial lead up to The 74th Annual Hunger Games. Though he’s a mild mannered first time stylist, the designs he creates show-stopping.
Jones will play legendary arenas announcer Claudius Templesmith who is described to have a large, booming voice and a sense of superiority. Gary Ross directs from a script by Billy Ray based on the Suzanne Collins novel.
Some location prep is currently underway in Shelby, North Carolina where the rundown District 12 area is being portrayed. Shooting won’t begin until late next month.
