Jena Malone To Play Catching Fire's Johanna?
It was previously thought that Zoe Aggeliki was in the running for the part but this now looks unlikely, with the prospect of Malone on board. The role of Johanna will be a key one. She will get to enjoy some of the wittiest one-liners from the novel and her first scene in the movie is likely to be one in which she strips naked, in order to intimidate Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence). Shooting for the movie is set to begin in September and is scheduled for release in November 2013. Whereas the first instalment in the franchise was directed by Gary Ross, Catching Fire has Francis Lawrence in the director's seat. He's best known for his work on Water For Elephants, Constantine and I Am Legend.
Jena Malone most recently starred in the popular TV miniseries Hatfields and MCCoys. She first rose to fame when she starred alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Donnie Darko and has since featured in Sucker Punch and Into The Wild.
