Julianne Moore could be the latest famous face to join the Hunger Games cast.

She is in talks to star in the third and fourth instalments of the films adapted from Suzanne Collins' Mockingjay, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The Big Lebowski star would be playing District 13 leader Alma Coin in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, which will be split into two parts.

If she was to sign a deal, Julianne would join a cast that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Philip Seymour Hoffman, with Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence back on board for the final two films.

The Hunger Games follows Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer, who lives in a world where randomly chosen teens are forced to compete in a televised fight to the death between districts.

President Coin is in charge of the district where Katniss lives, but the two clash as Katniss' motivations draw suspicion.

Julianne appears later this year in the remake of horror classic Carrie, as well as in Liam Neeson thriller Non-Stop and is reunited with Jeff Bridges in the fantasy adventure Seventh Son.
