If you’re a fan of this trilogy, you know that Hoffman’s character Plutarch Heavensbee is one of the key roles in the upcoming film.
The filmmakers behind the “Hunger Games” movies will digitally recreate late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman in the final scenes yet to be shot in Mockingjay Part 1 and 2. to preserve the actor’s presence in the film.
An insider from the film company Lionsgate told Hollywood Reporter:
“You can do digital things, you can have conversations where you’re not focusing on him but the people he’s talking to.”
This will definitely be a challenge, but I’m glad the producers have decided to take this route!
