Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Sucker Punch star Jena Malone is in talks to join The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. If cast Malone will play Johanna, who EW describes as having:
“A wicked ability to murder, winning her Hunger Games by pretending to be weak and then picking off the other tributes.”
Malone showed she has the ability to be pretty bad ass in Sucker Punch, so the action here should be a piece of cake for her. The real question, which EW poses, is how Johanna will be introduced in the film. You see, when she and Katniss first meet in the book Johanna is naked save for a pair of slippers. I doubt the sure to be PG-13 film will allow for full-frontal nudity.
Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) is directing this time around.
