Jena Malone to Play Johanna Mason in Catching Fire

The biggest question mark now is who should play Finnick Odair, the hunky tribute from the second book. Robert Pattinson has been linked with the role, but some fans think he does not fit the description of the character.

Catching Fire will be directed by Francis Lawrence. It is scheduled for release on November 22, 2013.
