The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Jena Malone is Close to Nailing the Role of Johanna MasonA few days ago Jena Malone was 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. Malone now has a firm offer and is in early negotiations for the part .

The move nixes premature reports that pegged newbie actress-model Zoe Aggeliki as the frontrunner to play the ax-wielding former Hunger Games winner from District 7, who aligns with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in their return to the arena for an all-star death match.

The sequel to the 2008 bestseller by Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen and the fictional, futuristic nation of Panem. Due to the events of the previous novel, a rebellion against the ruling Capitol has begun, and Katniss and fellow tribute Peeta are forced to return to the arena in a special edition of The Hunger Games.

Francis Lawrence will direct the sequel for Lionsgate, who is aiming for a November 2013 release.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Having read all 3 books it’s safe to say there isn’t a single element of horror involved in any of them. This doesn’t need to be covered by DC.

    • The Woman In Black

      Well, when you’re the editor-in-chief, you can make those decisions! LOL Post-apocalyptic world, kids killing kids, governmental control … there are enough survival horror themes that a story about it now and then is no big deal. It’s easy enough for people who don’t care about it to skip over them.

        Or I can spit venom at effeminate books written for unintelligent teens. True Hunger Games isn’t as craptastic as Twilight but it’s certainly not deserving of the widespread success it’s enjoyed.

        If this does well we’ll just get more of the same… sighs.
