    Julianne Moore may be joining the revolution.

    E! News confirms the Oscar-nominated actress is in negotiations to play a pivotal role in Lionsgate's upcoming Hunger Games two-parter, which will see Suzanne Collins' third and final book, Mockingjay, split into two movies.

    A source tells E! News that talks are ongoing for Moore to play President Alma Coin in the sequels, but "no deal has been struck yet."

    Fans of the dystopian sci-fi trilogy will remember Coin as the grey-haired president of District 13 who leads the rebellion against the dictatorship of The Capitol, but whose lust for power and ruthlessness ends up coming into conflict with the story's heroine, Katniss Everdeen.

    Jennifer Lawrence will reprise her part as Katniss and will once again be joined by a cast that includes Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Francis Lawrence is directing the highly anticipated second installment, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.

    He is expected to remain at the helm for Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2, which is scheduled for release respectively on Nov. 21, 2014 and Nov. 20, 2015.
