Viola Davis Actress To Play The Villain in the Hunger Games Prequel
Viola Davis actress is coming to the Hunger Games verse. She plays Dr. Volumnia Gaul, the lead game designer for the tenth annual Hunger Games. She joins Rachel Zegler, who portrays heroine Lucy Gray Baird from the underprivileged District 12, and Tom Blyth. Blyth plays the juvenile Coriolanus Snow. Josh Andrés Rivera, Peter Dinklage, and Hunter Schafer are some of the additional announced actors. According to the prequel’s plot summary, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is the final hope for his waning lineage, a once-proud family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol, years before he would become the dictatorial President of Panem. The young Snow isn’t happy when he gets to train Lucy Gray Baird. She’s the girl tribute from impoverished District 12, with the 10th annual Hunger Games drawing near.
The Hunger Games Prequel is about a young Coriolanus Snow
Snow believes he may be able to change the odds in their favor after Lucy Gray seizes Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony. Snow and Lucy’s fight against time to survive will finally expose who is a songbird and who is a snake, uniting their instincts for theatrics and newly acquired political cunning. Along with franchise producer Nina Jacobson and her partner Brad Simpson, Francis Lawrence, who oversaw the direction of three of the four Hunger Games movies, is back in charge and will also serve as producer. Tim Palen and Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins are as executive producers. The studio’s overseers are Meredith Wieck and Scott O’Brien.
“The Hunger Games films have always been elevated by their exceptional casting, and we are thrilled to be continuing that tradition with Viola Davis as Volumnia Gaul. Her formidable and powerful presence will add layers of complexity and menace to this story,” said Lionsgate motion picture group president Nathan Kahane.
“Dr. Gaul is as cruel as she is creative and as fearsome as she is formidable. Snow’s savvy as a political operator develops in no small part due to his experiences with her as the games’ most commanding figure,” said Lawrence. Jacobson adds, “From the beginning, Viola Davis has been our dream for Dr. Gaul because of the finely layered intelligence and emotion she brings to every role. A brilliant and eccentric strategist, Gaul is instrumental in shaping a young Coriolanus Snow into the man he will become. We are incredibly fortunate to have an actor with Viola’s extraordinary range and presence to play this pivotal role.”
