‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is Eyeing Its Johanna Mason
Though no actor has been locked down for any of the new characters entering ‘The Hunger Games‘ sequel ‘Catching Fire,‘ there’s been an awful lot of rumoring about who’s joining the cast. The latest word is that Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki are up for the role of Johanna Moore.
Wasilowska has been building a nice career for herself in the indie world, having appeared in the Oscar nominated films ‘The Kids are All Right’ and ‘Albert Nobbs,’ but she’s probably best known for being Alice in Tim Burton‘s ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ Though unlike other people who’ve been leads in films that have made a billion dollars worldwide, she’s not really a household name. This then could be good for her.
Aggeliki is a wild card. The eighteen-year-old model-turned-actress was recently in the ‘Maniac‘ remake, and will be seen in the ‘Percy Jackson’ sequel coming out next year, but her body of work hasn’t hit yet, so it’s hard to tell if she’s more than a pretty face.
This all comes from Indiewire, who’ve been the best source for ‘Hunger Games’ news. With the film scheduled to shoot in a couple months, this is all going to be ironed out shortly.
