Jena Malone is Johanna in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ Lionsgate announces!

That didn’t take long! Following Josh Hutcherson’s slip at last night’s Teen Choice Awards, Lionsgate has now announced that Jena Malone will indeed play Johanna in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!

“Johanna Mason, a female victor from a past Games still in her early twenties, is one of the youngest, but also one of the most psychologically scarred Hunger Games participants,” Lionsgate writes.

Malone’s other credits include Sucker Punch as Rocket and Pride & Prejudice as Lydia Bennet.

Are you satisfied with this actress in the role? You may recall she had received the offer earlier this month.

In the past two weeks the studio has also announced the roles of Plutarch and Wiress.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters November 22, 2013.
