Although renowned actor Philip Seymour Hoffman had seven days of shooting left on “The Hunger Games: MockingJay – Part 2,” his Feb. 2, 2014 death will not affect the film’s release, according to The Wrap.
A source close to the production told the Hoffman’s performance as the character Plutarch Heavensbee was almost complete on “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.”
Police say Hoffman was found dead inside his New York apartment on Sunday morning around 11:30 a.m., noting that containers with a substance suspected to be heroin in them were found near his body, according to the Los Angeles Times.
He was discovered in his bathroom with a hypodermic needle in his left arm, police added.
According to the Times, in 2006 Hoffman spoke publicly about his past struggles with drugs and alcohol, and in 2012 he checked himself into rehab for 10 days after relapsing following 23 years of sobriety.
He is survived by his girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell and three children.
