There’s one, actually several now that I think about it, facts that are looking menacingly down at me at this point. And no, it’s not a tax collector, or my mother, or even my father, and nope– definitely not a cat. Nope, it’s the fact that while we’re gearing up for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s release in November, which is less than five months from now give or take a few days, the production start date for Mockingjay: Part One is allegedly next month. That is if we’re inclined to listen to Liam Hemsworth who’s stated recently that they’re starting in September. Erm, actually he just smiled and nodded through a morning chat show interview, and the host said they’re beginning production in September, but Liam
agreed– so I’m goin’ with him on this one! The looming, scary, and staring things though is not just the production start date, it’s this: Where are the casting announcements for the major roles to be filled in the Mockingjay films, where are the filming location/ scouting/ permit request reports, and where are the semi veiled extra casting call announcements? Well, where are they?! Fair warning, this is not a fan-casting article, even though I quite literally have more people in mind for all the major roles, and some of the minor roles as well, in mind than most people have thoughts in a day.
Nope, I’m just here breathing life into my own petty, confused, and slightly paranoid thoughts where it comes to the completion of this franchise, and the completion of it being put forth, and executed with precision, and forethought, and um– care. That and I really need to stop listening to Radiohead, because it messes with my head, and makes me twitchy like Thom Yorke. I just keep thinking back to when casting, and production information was being released, and in many cases leaked to us, and we were satisfied, because we had months, not weeks to ruminate on an actors dossier, or stock photos of a city, or neighborhood to pick through with a scary amount of detail. So, what’s up? Where’s our Coin, where’s our Boggs, I assume these cast members have been vetted and cast at this point in time, but they’re keeping it mum, or in my twitchy-Radiohead-listening-head, they’re still looking for those two, and are going straight for the Insects, Fulvia, and the rest of the lot. All I wanna know is this… have they found themselves a Posy? Also why do all mock-up photos I find of Posy Hawthorne make her look like an Elf?
Let’s pretend I didn’t say any of this, ‘kay… thanks, bye.
