Jena Malone has reportedly been offered the role of Johanna Mason
Entertainment Weekly was the first source to mention Jena Malone as a frontrunner for the role of Johanna Mason in Catching Fire. Other reports included Zoe Aggeliki and Mia Wasikowska, but we may be coming to the end of the casting process for Johanna.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate has made a decision and has offered the role of Johanna Mason to Jena Malone.
Malone has the offer and is in early negotiations for the part, according to sources. The move nixes premature reports that pegged newbie actress-model Zoe Aggeliki as the front-runner to play the ax-wielding former Hunger Games winner from District 7.
This doesn’t mean that she has already been casted. According to the report, Lionsgate is now waiting for a response from Malon. THR is a very reputable source. Back in April, on a similar note, they reported director Francis Lawrence had been offered Catching Fire. Two week laters, an official announcement was made.
