'Dallas Buyers Club' Costume Design Duo to Outfit New 'Hunger Games' Movie
On the heels of the debut of the first Hunger Games: Mocking Jay -- Part 1 poster on Wednesday, Lionsgate has confirmed that costume designers Bart Mueller and Kurt Swanson will head the latest installment's costume design, succeeding original franchise designer Trish Summerville.
Summerville, who launched a capsule collection with Net-a-Porter in November following the popularity of her Hunger Games work, chose to work on the film adaption of David Fincher's Gone Girl instead of completing the Hunger Games series, Summerville's rep confirmed to Pret-a-Reporter.
Mueller and Swanson are nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award for their recent work on the Matthew McConaughey- and Jared-Leto-starring Dallas Buyers Club and have previously worked on Britney Spears' "Lucky," "Stronger" and "Slave 4 U" videos. They also designed the look of HBO's fashion industry-focused How To Make It In America.
