RUMOR: 'Sucker Punch' actress Jena Malone chosen as Johanna Mason in Catching Fire

Hunger Gamers, we might have just found our Johanna Mason. Reports have surfaced that Sucker Punch actress, Jena Malone has been offered to play the role of Johanna in Catching Fire. Read the report from The Hollywood Reporter below.
While many in Hollywood are cutting out early for the holidays, it’s reaping day for 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, who aligns with Katniss Everdeen. The Sucker Punch actress is in talks to play snide tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, a key role that will be reprised in the trilogy’s third installment, Mockingjay. 
The role requires a mix of wit and physicality. Although Mason enjoys some of the best one-liners in the Suzanne Collins novel, her first appearance finds her stripping out of her tribute costume in an effort to make Katniss uncomfortable. 
The movie is heading for a late-September start with director Francis Lawrence.
 Remember, although this is an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter (a very reliable news source), this remains a rumor until Lionsgate confirms it.

But if ever, what do you think of Jena Malone as Johanna Mason? Share your reactions on the comments below!
