Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely demise will not have an impact on the release dates of the two upcoming Hunger Games films, it has been revealed.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the 46-year-old actor had seven days left to shoot in The Hunger Games: Mockinjay Part 2, where he reprises his role of head gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee.

Insiders claimed that the scheduled release dates of November 21, 2014, and November 20, 2015, respectively for the two movies wouldn't be affected by the tragic news.

Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment from an apparent drug overdose, as he was discovered by his personal assistant with a needle in his arm.
