Donald Sutherland joins Hunger film

Donald Sutherland is the latest actor to join the cast of hotly anticipated new film The Hunger Games.

The Don't Look Now star - most recently seen in The Mechanic - will play President Snow, a character described as "cruel and ruthless in his intimidation and control tactics" in the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins' cult science fiction trilogy.

The film, due for release early next year, will also star Jennifer Lawrence. The Oscar-nominated actress is already in training for the role of Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl forced to take part in a televised fight to the death.

Other names attached to the project include Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci and Liam Hemsworth.
