As we all know Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away last sunday. Most people didn’t even realize he was starring in the final films of the Hunger Games series. He had about 7 days left of shooting. Most of his scenes have been shot for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2. Unlike with Paul Walker’s death, Hoffman’s character wasn’t the main star of the series. There should be no delay for the films. Lionsgate released this statement:
“Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation. We’re very fortunate that he graced our ‘Hunger Games’ family. Losing him in his prime is a tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Philip’s family.”
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will be released November 21, 2014.
