Actress Viola Davis (“The Suicide Squad”) has been confirmed as the villain of “The Hunger Games: Song of the Birds and the Serpents”, the prequel to “The Hunger Games”. She will give birth to Dr. Volumnia Gaul, boss of the 10th edition of the games, she described as a “cruel as well as creative” person.

“The ‘Hunger Games’ films have always been honored by their outstanding cast and we are thrilled to continue this tradition with Viola Davis as Volumnia Gaul,” said Lionsgate President Nathan Kahane. “Her formidable and powerful presence will add layers of complexity and threat to this story.”

“Dr. Gaul is as cruel as she is creative and as formidable as she is formidable,” added director Francis Lawrence. “Snow’s knowledge as a political operator largely develops from her experiences with her as the most dominant figure in the games.”

“From the beginning, Viola has been our dream for Dr. Gaul because of the intelligence and emotion she brings to each role,” added franchise producer Nina Jacobson. “A brilliant and eccentric strategist, Gaul is instrumental in molding the young Coriolanus Snow into the man he will become. We are incredibly fortunate to have an actress with Viola’s extraordinary reach and presence to play this pivotal role.”

Viola Davis will join a cast that already includes Rachel Zegler (“Love, Sublime Love”), Tom Blyth (“The Golden Age”), Hunter Schafer (“Euphoria”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) “) , Laurel Marsden (“Ms. Marvel”), Jason Schwartzman (“Fargo”), Ashley Liao (“Physical”), Josh Andrés Rivera (also of “Amor, Sublime Amor”), Mackenzie Lansing (“Mare of Easttown”) ” ) and other.

The new production will bring the latest book of the saga, written by Suzanne Collins, to the screen. Despite being released in 2020, following the success of the films, the plot is a prologue, set 64 years before Katniss Everden’s victory at the Hunger Games, and tells how it all began.

The protagonist is Lucy Gray Baird (Zegler), a tribute to poor District 12. Selected to participate in the “Hunger Games”, she is led by the young Coriolanus Snow (Blyth), decades before he became the powerful president of Panem. In the plot, the future president is an 18-year-old, born in a golden cradle and eager to build his own legacy.

The film will once again be directed by Francis Lawrence, who has signed most of the films in the franchise, as well as screenwriter Michael Arndt and producer Nina Jacobson.

Nina Jacobson produced all four adaptations of Suzanne Collins’ books, which grossed $ 3 billion worldwide, Lawrence directed the last three, and Arndt wrote the best, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

The first is scheduled for November 16, 2023 in Brazil and the next day in the United States.
