With filming of The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, due to kick off later on this year, it sounds like producers have been having a tricky time casting an actress to play District 7 tribute Johanna Mason alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.

Jena Malone for Johanna Mason in Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire?

There have been lots of rumours about who will get the part of the fierce and cunning tribute already this week and from sifting our way through all the rumours, we've come up with three names that seem like they could be up there as the front runners

First on the list is Jena Malone, who you might remember as the angry, messed up daughter in 90s classic Stepmom and according to Entertainment Weekly, she's in the running for the role. We definitely think she's got the Johanna look and from seeing her being a mardy bum in Stepmom, she could definitely pull of the antagonistic big sister type relationship Johanna has with Katniss.

Mia Wasikowska for Johanna Mason in Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire?

But according to The Playlist, inside sources have blabbed that both Mia Wasikowska and Zoe Aggeliki are apparently also ''in talks'' for the role. Whether that means ''talks'' with the people making the film or just random strangers on the street, we really don't know, but will happily accept the possibility of them as Johanna.

You might remember Mia from her turn in the title role of Alice In Wonderland and although there are all sorts of rumours about her taking on Catching Fire's Quarter Quell, according to Digital Spy, her rep claims she hasn't actually been approached for the role.

Zoe Aggeliki for Johanna Mason in Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire?

Last but not least we have Zoe, who according to reports,  might just be edging ahead of the other two. To be fair, you might be wondering who the heck Zoe is and that's probably because she hasn't actually been in anything yet. Apart from a performance in Percy Jackson and The Lightening Thief 2, which is due out later this year, she's a teenage Swedish model and is a relative newbie to the whole acting shebang, something Catching Fire producers are apparently quite keen on.

We really don't know who we'd like to see most in the role, but it only seems fitting that they have some sort of fight to the death (without the death bit) to sort it out. It is The Hunger Games after all.
