I recently posted that the Stepmom and Sucker Punch star Jena Malone was being considered for the role of Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Well it has now been confirmed that Malone has booked this major role. Malone is also starring in NBC’s new TV series, 1600 Penn, so she will have to balance her shooting schedule between the two projects. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is scheduled to start filming in late September and it is going to hit theaters November 22, 2013.
Are you looking forward to seeing Malone play Johanna Mason? Do you think she was the right choice for the role?
