Philip Seymour Hoffman and ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’
Philip Seymour Hoffman had filmed most of his scenes in the upcoming two-part final installment of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, when he was found dead in his New York City apartment on Feb. 2. But, Hoffman had one major, emotional scene left to film in Mockingjay — Part 2, which may need to be reconceived following the actor's death. Still studio Lionsgate has said his death will have no impact on production or the release dates of the two films, the first of which is set to hit theaters on Nov. 21. The second film is slated to be released in Nov. 2015.
