Woody Harrelson has been signed to star as Haymitch, in the upcoming movie ‘Hunger Games’, directed by Gary Ross.

Lionsgate has signed Woody Harrelson to star in the upcoming movie of ‘Hunger Games. He plays the character of Haymitch Abernathy, a mentor of Katniss played by Jennifer Lawrence and Peeta, played by Josh Hutcherson in a televised battle against skilled and lethal young killers.

As per the reports, John C. Reilly was offered the role of Haymitch Abernathy, but the deal did not work out. Last month, Woody was considered for the role of head game maker of 74th Hunger Games, Seneca Crane. However, Wes Bentley stepped in to that character last week.

Haymitch, who is a drunker, is the only winner of Hunger Games of District 12 and the winner of 50th Hunger Games. After 20 years of his victory, he will mentor the present tributes Katniss and Peeta to win the games. On the other hand, Dakota Hood and Jeremy Marinas will join the cast of the movie. They play as the tributes of District 10.

Now, the production team is in quest of the cast to play the characters of Cato and Clove of District 2 tributes. The movie has been adapted from the novel by Suzanne Collins. Billy Ray has provided the screenplay for the movie.

Willow Shields, Wes Bentley, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson, John C. Reilly, Leven Rambin are the crucial star cast of the movie.

’The Hunger Games’ movie is expected to release in theaters on March 23, 2012.
