‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I’ Updates: See How Producers Will Finish Off Philip Seymour Hoffman's Scenes

Fans of Suzanne Collins' masterpiece, the "Hunger Games" saga, are in for a treat by Lionsgate studios. According to a report by E! News, the producers of the movie have already unveiled the first part of "Hunger Games: Mocking Jay."
Lionsgate studios have already released a series of new promotional material last Thursday on their Web site. In addition to juicy teasers from the producers, Lionsgate has also released some iconic photos of the cast namely Julianne Moore and Woody Harrelson.
Despite the seemingly smooth-sailing operations of "Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I," fans are still worried as to how the movie would cope with Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely death who played the head game maker Plutarch Heavensbee.
Director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson dished some revealing details about the movie with regard to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman's scenes by saying:
"We finished the majority of his work [before he died]. I think he might have had 8 to 10 days left on our schedule. In most of the scenes, Philip didn't have any dialogue. We are going to put him into those scenes, but we're only using real footage. We're not creating anything digital or a robotic version of him."
"We had to rewrite the dialogue scenes that he had left and there's no question that shooting those scenes is painful without him. We might give a line of Plutarch's to Haymitch or Effie, but only in circumstances that we are able to do that without undermining the intent of the scene," added Jacobson further.
Despite the sad circumstance the crew had to deal with, the cast and the staff are happy to be joined by actress Juliane Moore. Moore plays President Coin in the upcoming movie. In a recorded video interview that was released on the Internet, Moore gushed about how excited she was to join the "Hunger Games" by saying:
""I was very impressed with the books...I've read all the books. I've read them all the way through, and I'm like, 'I want to be in this movie!' Clearly, that was the only part that I could play."
