‘Hunger Games’ Prequel Signs ‘Euphoria’ Star Hunter Schafer

Euphoria actress Hunter Schafer has joined Lionsgate’s Hunger Games prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

Schafer will play Tigris Snow, Coriolanus’ cousin and confidant, who advises him in everything — from his role as mentor to the core of his moral compass. She will appear onscreen opposite Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler, who will play Lucy Gray, the girl tribute from impoverished District 12.

Schafer made her acting debut portraying Jules in HBO’s Euphoria series. She also co-wrote and co-executive produced a special episode for the series, which aired in January 2021. Schafer is currently in production on the Neon film Cuckoo from director Tilman Singer.

The latest adaptation of a Suzanne Collins novel will debut in theaters worldwide Nov. 17, 2023. Lionsgate’s four-film Hunger Games franchise had earned over $3 billion globally when it wrapped up in 2014, and it is now looking to extend its lifespan with the adaptation of Collins’ latest entry in the dystopian series, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

Francis Lawrence, who directed three of the four Hunger Games movies — Catching Fire, Mockingjay: Part One and Mockingjay: Part Two — returns to the helmer’s seat with franchise producer Nina Jacobson and her partner Brad Simpson back as producers. Lawrence is also producing. Collins, Tim Palen and Jim Miller exec produce. Michael Lesslie wrote the latest draft of the screenplay.

The prequel’s logline from Lionsgate reads: “Years before he would become the tyrannical President of Panem, 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow is the last hope for his fading lineage, a once-proud family that has fallen from grace in a post-war Capitol. With the 10th annual Hunger Games fast approaching, the young Snow is alarmed when he is assigned to mentor Lucy Gray Baird, the girl tribute from impoverished District 12. But, after Lucy Gray commands all of Panem’s attention by defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow thinks he might be able to turn the odds in their favor. Uniting their instincts for showmanship and newfound political savvy, Snow and Lucy’s race against time to survive will ultimately reveal who is a songbird and a snake.”

Schafer is represented by CAA, Untitled Entertainment, Viewpoint and Sloane Offer.

“We Had To Do Something”: Crowds Are Gathering Across The US To Protest The Overturning Of Roe V. Wade

“We Had To Do Something”: Crowds Are Gathering Across The US To Protest The Overturning Of Roe V. Wade

The Suttons walked an hour from their hotel to the court.

“We had to do something,” Sutton said. “I just could not believe that [the abortion rights issue] was going to come around again.”

Demonstrations were also planned for major metro areas across the US Friday evening, including in New York and Los Angeles.

In a 6–3 decision by the conservative majority, the court overturned its 1973 opinion in Roe v. Wade and upheld Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban. That will give states — mostly in the South and Midwest — the ability to outlaw the medical procedure, forcing people to travel long distances to places where it’s still legal. For many, however, that’s cost prohibitive.

President Joe Biden and others warned that the Supreme Court decision had set the US on an “extreme and dangerous path” that could lead to the overturn of other civil rights, including those for same-sex marriage. As Pride Month draws to a close, the timing of the Roe decision, combined with Justice Clarence Thomas’s separate opinion that his colleagues should reconsider other rights previously granted by the court, is expected to draw even more people to demonstrations.

“I don’t know what to tell people other than we have come too far to let these things be taken away from us,” Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in the 2015 Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, told BuzzFeed News on Friday.

Antonio Marras Spring 2023 Menswear

Hybridization is a concept Antonio Marras has explored since his label’s inception. His restless nature has always found a sort of solace in the practice of artistic assemblages, which gives him the room to experiment he needs to express his creative exuberance. The maximalist mash-ups so popular today? He was there before they went mainstream.

For spring he walked that familiar route with even bolder conviction. He built the collection from a vintage foulard belonging to his mother, printed with baroque curlicue motifs, “which of course bring to mind a certain blonde designer,” he joked, referring to Donatella Versace. But regardless of obvious references, that square of printed silk carried personal memories.

Field jackets, parkas, peacoats and bombers with a vintage surplus flavor were submitted to an intensive patchwork treatment. Floral and animalier patches, sequins, paisleys, and the said curlicued silk foulards were appliquéd, embroidered, “invaded and disrupted,” as per Marras’s description, reincarnated into new decorative entities, a crazy camouflage of sorts made from fabric leftovers and shreds of discarded trimmings. A hybrid shirt-bomber made from slices of clashing prints had huge batwing sleeves and was cropped at the waist, bringing to memory the ’80s shapes favored by the influential Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto. It was part of an offer of one-of-a-kind pieces which, together with a variety of everyday unisex options, added further range to the collection.

“It’s all about harmony and madness,” said Marras. “But there’s always a method in Antonio’s madness,” joked his wife Patrizia. “ For him, it’s just about the love of being free, letting his creativity fly with no boundaries.”
