A relative newcomer, Zoe, 18, will soon be seen on the big screen alongside Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges and Kevin Bacon in "R.I.P.D.," a supernatural action comedy due to hit theaters in June 2013.

Whoever nabs the "Catching Fire" role will also appear in the third film of the "Hunger Games" franchise, "Mockingjay," as the character of Johanna is integral to that storyline as well.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" begins shooting later this year and is slated for theatrical release on November 22, 2013.
