Sucker Punch's Jena Malone has emerged as another contender to play Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We reported last week that Mia Wasikowska and newcomer Zoe Aggeliki were the top choices to play the District 7 tribute. This new report reveals that Mia Wasikowska was not approached for the role, and she is not available as well.

Johanna Mason is a fierce competitor who plots to take out all of her competition in The 75th Hunger Games by pretending to be weak. There is a question about whether or not director Francis Lawrence will keep Johanna Mason's intro from the Suzanne Collins book, where a naked Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) first meets the character.

The actress most recently starred in The History Channel's record shattering mini-series Hatfields & McCoys.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was released November 22nd, 2013 and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Jack Quaid, Taylor St. Clair, Sandra Ellis Lafferty, Woody Harrelson, Josh Hutcherson, Paula Malcomson. The film is directed by Francis Lawrence.

    She would probably be great. Do both the characters really meet naked? Was it like a shower scene or something in the book?
