With The Hunger Games headed to Comic-Con, we can now confirm that Julianne More may be headed to The Hunger Games!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Moore would come on board the final two installments of the franchise as District 13 leader Alma Coin, a major character in Suzanne Collins' "Mockingjay."

Negotiations are allegedly ongoing, but the Oscar nominee would be yet another casting coup for the films, which added Philip Seymour Hoffman to Catching Fire.

He, of course, is joining the established trio of Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will have a panel at Comic-Con next month, Lionsgate announced today in both predictable and awesome news.

Sam Claflin as Finnick

It’s unclear which Hunger Games stars will be in attendance, but Lionsgate promises that “talent” from the film will be there for the Saturday, July 20 panel.

One can only hope (nay, pray) for Jennifer Lawrence.

And Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson and Sam Claflin (above) too, sure. But for reals, Lionsgate ... J-Law. Make it happen.

The Lionsgate panel will also debut an exclusive new Catching Fire trailer and new footage from I, Frankenstein, whose cast will also be on hand.

Katniss Everdeen has taken her bow and arrow to The Twilight Saga and hit a bull's eye:

The Hunger Games has sold 3.8 million copies in its first two days of release, outpacing both previous installments of that other popular young adult series.

In February, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 sold 3.2 million DVDs and Blu-rays on its first weekend, while Eclipse came out to 2.7 million in December 2010.

There's still a long way to go for The Hunger Games, of course, as Catching Fire - with Sam Claflin as the key character of Finnick Odair - hits theaters in November 2013, but sound off now:

Which movie franchise do you like best?

Even the most ardent Hunger Games fan must admit: the following is positively hilarious.

Brought to us by the folks at Screen Junkies, it's an "honest" trailer for the blockbuster movie, one that points out just a few flaws.

Such as how Katniss can escape all conceivable dangers through the use of trees. Or how Panem is set in a “future so advanced they can conjure fire and monster dogs, but not food for the poor.” Or how the story "forces two actors with no chemistry to awkwardly fall in love."

Overall, let's just say the narrator with the awesome voice is NOT a fan of Peeta. But he sure would love to orally pleasure Liam Hemsworth. Just watch for yourself:

In actual franchise news, meanwhile, Sam Claflin has been cast as Finnick in Catching Fire. Are you down with that choice?

Lynn Cohen is set to enter The Hunger Games arena.

The actress has been cast in the sequel to this blockbuster as Mags, an elderly Tribute from District 4 who has served as a mentor to Finnick Odair.

Cohen is the latest addition to the impressive Catching Fire crew.

Aside from returning stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin is reportedly on board as Finnick, while Philip Seymour Hoffman will take on Plutarch Heavensbee and Jena Malone plays Johanna Mason.

Catching Fire comes out on November 22, 2013.
