Synopsis: Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match.
Game Change centers around the 2008 elections, following the Arizona senator’s presidential bid and decision to select Sarah, then governor of Alaska, as his running mate.
“[I]n terms of the research I did on the way campaigns are conducted, so much is about how do you get on the air, how do you get the most media attention, how do you make the most noise,” Julianne told ABC News in October. “When in fact, what we’re all looking for is leadership, we don’t want noise. We want people who are going to take care of us.”
The 49-year-old No Country for Old Men star will play Haymitch Abernathy in the much anticipated big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ popular novel.
“Haymitch is such an unforgettable character: funny cranky outrageous, sarcastic, impatient, biting but ultimately kind. I’m so grateful we have Woody Harrelson to play him. I can’t wait for us to get to work,” director Gary Ross said.
Woody will star opposite Jennifer Lawrence, who scored the lead role of Katniss Everdeen.
