Only a day after The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes added numerous people to its cast, Euphoria‘s Hunter Schafer has signed on to be in the film.
Schafer will be playing Tigris Snow, the cousin, and confidante, to Coriolanus Snow. Tigris frequently advises Coriolanus as a mentor and serves as the core of his moral compass. Schafer will star opposite Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler in the upcoming Hunger Games prequel.
Based on the 2020 prequel novel by Suzanne Collins, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is set 64 years before the events of the Hunger Games trilogy, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games, where an 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is assigned as the mentor for the tribute girl from the impoverished District 12.
Written by Michael Lesslie and based on a draft by Collins and Michael Arndt, the film will be helmed by Hunger Games films director Francis Lawrence. It will be shepherded by franchise producer Nina Jacobson and her producing partner Brad Simpson, along with Francis Lawrence. Suzanne Collins, Tim Palen, and Jim Miller will serve as executive producers. Meredith Wieck and Scott O’Brien are overseeing on behalf of the studio.
The prequel is currently scheduled for a November 17, 2023 theatrical release.
