The Kidd here...
Jena Malone is heading to Panem for the second chapter of THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy, having been offered the role of Johanna Mason, the former District 7 winner of a previous Hunger Games, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Every 25 years, former victors are called upon to compete once more, and with CATCHING FIRE revolving around the 75th version of the Games, it leads to characters such as Mason to enter the arena again. Her relationship with Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen begins as adversarial before evolving into something much more resembling an alliance of sorts against the Capitol.
Oh, and she swings a mean axe.
Zoe Aggeliki was also in the running for the snarky role, but director Francis Lawrence has elected to go with the snark and athleticism of Malone, who was last seen on the big screen in last year's SUCKER PUNCH as Rocket.
