Is Zoe Aggeliki the frontrunner in the competition for the role of Johanna Mason?
Last week we heard the first two names of actresses that were supposedly in the running for the role of Johanna Mason in the sequel to The Hunger Games: Zoe Aggeliki and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland). Since then, Wasikowska’s reps have commented on the issue and assured the actress won’t ba able to play the role due to her busy agenda. A couple of days after the first reported another source added a new name: Jena Malone (Sucker Punch).
While everything is still uncertain and we cannot but be cautious, Deadline is now reporting that Zoe Aggeliki is indeed the frontrunner in the competition. Quotage:
Zoe Aggeliki has the edge over Jena Malone for a role in Lionsgate‘s The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Aggeliki and Malone (Sucker Punch) are up for the part of Johanna Mason, an ax-welding, deceptive and ruthless winner of a previous Hunger Games in the sequel film. However, sources say model-actress Aggeliki is the one in the most serious talks after both auditioned for director Francis Lawrence. Aggeliki has roles in the upcoming R.I.P.D. and another sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters.
We’ll keep you informed.
