Philip Seymour Hoffman (who will be playing new head gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee) admitted in an interview with Telegraph that he thought The Hunger Games would be “crap”. Have no fear, his opinion changed and now he’s as enthusiastic about it as us!
“I was incredibly pessimistic, but then I read the books, and it was like, ‘pow’,” he enthuses. “I didn’t even know The Hunger Games was a big deal, but I’m incredibly impressed with it.
“My son is about to turn 10, so I bought him the books and I’m going to read them with him, if for no other reason than it’s the first time I’ve made a film that’s suitable for him.”
All is forgiven, PSH! I have no doubt you will do Plutarch justice. CLICK HERE to read more about PSH and his other projects outside of The Hunger Games.
