The next two parts of the Hunger Games will get released on time. Despite the untimely death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who played a crucial role in Hunger Games, the two final parts of the film will get displayed on the silver screen in November 2014.
Virtually all of Hollywood (not to mention the rest of the world) is in mourning over the tragic loss of a great actor. The meaningless death of Philip Seymour Hoffman from a cocaine overdose has created a vacuum of sorts in the sequels to the Hunger Games.
Seymour played a very important role as Plutarch Heavensbee in the film. And while he is simply indispensable for the final cut of the movie, the fact remains that the multibillion dollar dreamscape must be created without him. The Hunger Games Mockingjay will proceed with each scene being shot with a substitute actor.
Hoffman had already appeared in many movies such as: The Big Lebowski, Happiness, Capote and Charlie Wilson’s War. He was a veteran actor who followed the method acting technique to portray realistic figures on screen. But Hoffman’s real life was one of pain and sorrow due to his drug addiction. He tried to quit several times but to no avail. Each time he relapsed.
The final straw came when he took an overdose and the result was death. He leaves behind him a family consisting of a wife and three kids. Not only will Hoffman be greatly missed by his near and dear ones, millions of his fans worldwide will never forget this thoroughly thoughtful thespian. His level of sensitivity was way beyond most of the brutal beings we find on the streets of big cities in today’s irony-stricken world.
