If true, Hoffman will join a cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and more in the anticipated follow-up, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, based on the second entry in Collins’ trilogy. His character will replace Wes Bentley‘s Seneca Crane as the Gamemaker. Francis Lawrence of I Am Legend fame will take over directorial duties from Gary Ross.
