Jena Malone. Who didn’t know this girl? She was recently seen in the critically adored Hatfields & McCoys miniseries and less-lauded Sucker Punch. It said that Ms. Malone is in negotiation to join in the Hunger Games franchise as a former winner from District 7 who joins a group of former champions forced to compete in the Quarter Quell, Johanna Mason.
According to a source, Malone has been offered the role and is in “early negotiations” to make it official as we speak. The actress has had her name in the mix for a while now along with model-turned-actress Zoe Aggeliki and Josh’s co-star in The Kids Are Alright, Mia Wasikowska.
Catching Fire is schedule to release on November 2013, that give Lawrence a very tight deadline. We expect further casting announcements in the coming weeks. Tik Tok people. The clock is ticking.
