It seems like Catching Fire the movie has finally found its very own Johanna Mason!
Just last Monday, Lionsgate proudly announced that Jena Malone will be the on-screen Johanna Mason, the hardened former Hunger Games victor from District 7. Before closing the deal to be on the second installment of the dystopian thriller based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling Y.A. trilogy, the 27-year-old actress has appeared in the History Channel’s Hatfields & McCoys, 2007’s Into the Wild, and 2011’s Sucker Punch.
Joining Malone as a new cast member is Philip Seymour Hoffman, who will be playing the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, the gamemaker or the brain behind the very deadly 75th Hunger Games.
The only thing missing on the list is the on-screen Finnick Odair, the dashingly handsome victor from District 4. Sam Clafin, who starred in the recent Snow White and the Huntsman with controversial Kristen Stewart, is the frontrunner for the much coveted role, but no official deal has been made yet as of now.
Let the 75th annual Hunger Games begin!
