'The Hunger Games' cast and crew have honored Philip Seymour Hoffman, the 46-year old actor who recently died of an apparent overdose over the weekend.

The actor was said to be just seven days away from wrapping filming on the final part of the sci-fi film when he was found dead of an apparent drugs overdose at his home in New York yesterday (02.02.14), and a statement on behalf of the entire cast and crew has been composed by actress Jennifer Lawrence, director Francis Lawrence and author of the original 'Hunger Games' novels, Suzanne Collins.

It reads: ''Words cannot convey the devastating loss we are all feeling right now. Philip was a wonderful person and an exceptional talent, and our hearts are breaking. Our deepest thoughts and condolences go out to his family.''

The studio behind the movies, Lionsgate, has already confirmed Philip will not be replaced in his role as Plutarch Heavensbee in the final two movies, 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' parts one and two.

The studio also issued a statement about the actor's passing, calling him ''a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation''.

Many other actors and actresses who worked with Philip during his career have also paid tribute, including Robert De Niro, Gwyneth Paltrow, George Clooney and Jeff Bridges.

Philip is survived by his partner, Mimi O'Donnell, and their three children, Cooper, ten, Tallulah, seven, and Willa, five.
