Lionsgate announced today that Julianne Moore has joined the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, which are based on the novel Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and tell the story of Katniss Everdeen‘s journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the corrupt Capitol.

Moore will be playing President Alma Coin, the head of District 13 who [spoiler alert!] leads the rebellion against the dictatorship of the Capitol. But as Hunger Games enthusiasts know, Coin’s lust for power and ruthlessness comes into conflict with the film’s heroine.

Moore will star alongside a cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the third and fourth installment of the hit franchise.

“It’s official! Please welcome Julianne Moore as ‘President Alma Coin’ to the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1&2,” read the announcement on the film’s official Facebook page, it has already received over 35,000 “likes.”
