'Catching Fire' at Comic-Con: Jennifer Lawrence gets raw, Josh Hutcherson grows up -- VIDEO

Is it November yet? Hunger Games fans (especially the ones in San Diego) got a lot of treats Saturday, with the arrival of the most revealing Catching Fire trailer yet and a Comic-Con panel with the cast and crew.

And now we have even more Mockingjay goodness for you: EW’s Laura Hertzfeld caught up with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson — Katniss and Peeta themselves — along with their co-stars Jena Malone, Willow Shields, and Lenny Kravitz and director Francis Lawrence.

Jennifer revealed her dietary concerns on set — she’s not a fan of ripping into raw halibut — while Josh said Peeta has grown up a lot since his first Games.

Casting Net: Emma Watson in talks to play Cinderella; Plus Gary Oldman, David Lynch, and more

• Emma Watson might get the princess treatment in Kenneth Branagh’s live action adaptation of Cinderella for Disney. Cate Blanchett has already been cast as the wicked stepmother. Watson is only in early talks at this point, so although it seems like the shoe fits, it might be best not to get too attached to the idea of her as Cinderella.  [Variety]

• Gary Oldman has signed on to join the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, to play Dreyfus – the leader of the resistance efforts. EW previously reported Jason Clarke‘s (Zero Dark Thirty) casting and the news that Andy Serkis will reprise his role as Caesar, the leader of the apes. Oldman is also currently working on the RoboCop remake and Paranoia. [Deadline]

'Mad Men's John Slattery on the term 'silver fox' and his new indie 'In Our Nature' -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

As Mad Men‘s silver-haired Roger Sterling, John Slattery is debonair, drunken, sexy, competitive, and sentimental. He’s also, at times, a complete goof.

In writer/director Brian Savelson’s feature debut, In Our Nature, out in theaters Dec. 7, Slattery plays Gil, the estranged dad of Seth, a bearded hipster played by Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights). When Seth brings his girlfriend, Andie, played by Jena Malone (Pride & Prejudice), to his family’s upstate New York retreat for a romantic getaway weekend, Gil shows up to the house as well — with his new, younger girlfriend Vicky, played by Gabrielle Union. It’s a tight physical environment for drama to play out among four characters, just how Slattery likes it. There’s high tension between Gil and Seth, sharing a house they haven’t been in together since Seth was a boy, and Slattery — who has a teenage son with his wife Talia Balsam — works with Gilford to create the type of genuine awkwardness that can exist only between fathers and sons.

In an exclusive clip, below, Gil and Vicky attempt to leave early to head back to New York City, before getting roped into staying at the house by Andie. Slattery told EW about taking on the role, working with Union, just how annoying the term “silver fox” is, and how writing always always prevails. READ FULL STORY

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' begins shooting in Georgia, before moving to Hawaii

The 75th annual Hunger Games are on!

Lionsgate announced Monday that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has officially started production in and around Atlanta, Ga., with director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) at the helm, before moving to shoot in Hawaii. Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson are, of course, reprising their respective roles as winning tributes Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark; Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland are all also returning, with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, and Amanda Plummer joining the franchise. Shooting is set to conclude in December.

Intriguingly, the announcement was notable for what it didn’t mention as much as what it did. READ FULL STORY

Official: Jena Malone will play Johanna Mason in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'

It’s official: Lionsgate announced this morning that Jena Malone has signed on to play Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Malone is the third new actor to formally join the Hunger Games franchise, following Philip Seymour Hoffman (as Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee) and Amanda Plummer (as tribute Wiress).

EW first reported last month that Malone was in the running for the pivotal role. (Some basic plot SPOILERS follow from here.)  READ FULL STORY

Jena Malone to play Johanna Mason in 'Catching Fire'

One down, one more to go. The role of Johanna Mason — one of the most anticipated new characters in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire — may be taken. Lionsgate has reportedly already offered the part — a cunning, sarcastic Tribute from District 7 — to Malone, star of Saved!Sucker Punch, and, most recently, the A&E mini-series Hatfields & McCoys. EW reported last week that Malone was in the running for the role.

Mason, who eventually allies herself with Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and Josh Hutcherson’s Peeta, also appears in Suzanne Collins’ third book Mockingjay, so we can probably expect to see Malone in forthcoming sequels. Still to be cast is the role of Finnick Odair, another Tribute that aids the series’ protagonists, even though production is expected to begin in September with Francis Lawrence directing.

Jena Malone in the running for Johanna Mason in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' -- EXCLUSIVE

Actress Jena Malone (Sucker Punch) is in the running for the pivotal role of strong-willed tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, EW has learned exclusively.

The character is described in author Suzanne Collins’ best-seller as possessing “a wicked ability to murder,” winning her Hunger Games by pretending to be weak and then picking off the other tributes. One open question about the character is whether director Francis Lawrence will keep Johanna’s introduction from the book, in which she first meets heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) naked — save for her green slippers.
