It was reported last week that Zoe Aggeliki had auditioned to play Johanna Mason in Catching Fire.
Now Deadline has weighed in with a report that she is the frontrunner for the role and is currently in talks:
Looks like we might have a Hunger Games winner. Zoe Aggeliki has the edge over Jena Malone for a role in Lionsgate‘s The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. Aggeliki and Malone (Sucker Punch) are up for the part of Johanna Mason, an ax-welding, deceptive and ruthless winner of a previous Hunger Games in the sequel film. However, sources say model-actress Aggeliki is the one in the most serious talks after both auditioned for director Francis Lawrence.
Still no word from Linsgate, but we’d love to know what you think. Do you think Zoe would make a good Johanna?
