Story by Jack Foley

JENA Malone, of Sucker Punch fame, has been linked to a pivotal role in Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire.

If reports are true, the actress is being lined up to play strong-willed tribute Johanna Mason.

The character is described in author Suzanne Collins’ best-seller as possessing ‘a wicked ability to murder’.

She wins her Hunger Games by pretending to be weak and then picking off the other tributes.

She also makes a striking entrance in the book, greeting heroine Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence in the film) naked… well, in a pair of green slippers!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on November 22, 2013.

It will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who takes over the series from Gary Ross.
