Malone will play ax-wielding tribute Johanna Mason who will align herself with Katniss Everdeen at the 75th Annual Hunger Games.

Jena Malone has accepted the offer to play Johanna Mason in "The Hunger Games" sequel, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire". Mason is a crucial character who will appear also in the trilogy's last installment, "Mockingjay".

In the Suzanne Collins book series, Mason is a former Hunger Games winner from District 7 who uses an ax to kill her enemies. She participates in the 75th Hunger Games when past winners are forced to make a comeback for Quarter Quell. She pretends to be a weakling so nobody will see her as a threat but she later proves herself to be a vicious killer.

Mason, psychologically damaged from her experience, becomes a strong ally for Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, and Finnick Odair. Another returning tribute, Wiress, from District 3 will also be an ally for Katniss. Veteran actress Amanda Plummer is filling the role.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" opens November 22, 2013 directed by Francis Lawrence. Filming will start in September.
