‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ May Add Mia Wasikowska, Unknown Model

ALTIn 2010, Mia Wasikowska grossed high (very high) as the onscreen incarnation of a literary character when she took on the title role in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. She followed this blockbuster with another novel adaptation: Jane Eyre, which was critically admired. So maybe books are just her thing. The Playlist states that Wasikowska is in talks to join one of the biggest book-to-movie series out there, The Hunger Games, in the developing film Catching Fire.

Reportedly, the 22-year-old actress is being considered to take on the role of Johanna Mason, who has sort of a love-hate relationship with heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Although Wasikowska is a great choice for the film, she’s not the only one gunning for the role: model Zoe Aggeliki is also being considered to play Johanna. Although she has primarily served as a model to date, Aggeliki is entering the world of acting, with the upcoming film R.I.P.D. on the horizon for the young performer.

Who would you rather see play Johanna?
