‘The Hunger Games’ sequel ‘Catching Fire’ to be directed by Francis Lawrence

The next film in The Hunger Games trilogy, “Catching Fire“, will begin filming in North Carolina this coming Fall, 2012 with new director Francis Lawrence. Four-time Academy Award nominee Gary Ross announced that he will not be returning to direct Catching Fire, and there is a good chance that a different casting director will also be hired. It is most often the director who chooses the casting director, and three-time Casting Society of America Artios Award winner Debra Zane has cast every film that Gary Ross has directed or produced since 1998 including “Pleasantville”, “Seabiscuit”, and “The Tale of Despereaux“. Zane would likely cast Ross’ next project instead of “Catching Fire”.

    Hi I’m Amanda, a soon to be 13 year old female who has a passion for acting and photography brewing inside her. I am been mistaken for 15 years of age. I am in 8th grade, going into 9th this fall. I didn’t skip a grade, I started a little early in school. I am home schooled and I attend a home school co-op and have been in plays there. I’ve been in minor roles and had a few solos. Since there is always a huge cast, we always choose an expanded version of plays. Last year I was in Pinocchio, and I’m currently in the Wizard of Oz (playing one of the wicked witch of the west’s minions, minor role) Like I said, it is an expanded cast. It’s fun and I’ve never had a lead role but people say I do have talent. I play guitar and piano. Every Friday morning at my co-op I play guitar in our worship band. I may not be very experienced in the real world, but I think I have what it takes to be a strong actress! I am 5 feet 5 inches tall, with green eyes, a big smile and short brown hair. I am very nice and easy to get along with. It’s hard to get on my bad side and I am great at doing what I’m told. I would be honored to play a role in one of the upcoming Hunger Games movies. I have read the first two books and am almost done with the third. I don’t know what role I would be good for, but I would take any role I was given happily, even if it is a boy. My brother’s friend was in The Hunger Games and I was so jealous. I would love for my first real world acting experience to be in a movie that is sure to be amazing, even if it is as a background or minor character.

  12. Hello my name is Amber Heimann, I am 18 years old. I would love to be part of the catching fire movie. I read all the books and I loved them. I also was an extra for the Harry Potter commercial back in 2010 I do a little modeling but with schooling it was hard. I have blond hair and blue eyes I’m 5’3″ I weigh 110 and I’m a slim built. If you go to http://www.247cast.com/amberheimann you will see my information.
