Posted Monday July 23, 2012 1:20 PM GMT

The competition has been fierce for the role of Johanna Mason in the upcoming “Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire,” and it seems Jena Malone has come out on top.

According to a report, the “Sucker Punch” starlet has signed on to play the outspoken tribute from District 7 who goes up against Jennifer Lawrence’s character Katniss in the “Quarter Quell.”

“Catching Fire” has a few other previously announced additions such as Sam Claflin, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amanda Plummer.

Unfortunately there’s still over a year to wait until Jena shows up on the silver screen, as “Catching Fire” won’t be hitting theaters until November 22nd, 2013.
