Robert Pattinson In 'Catching Fire'? Lionsgate Reportedly Wants 'Twilight' Star For 'Hunger Games' Sequel

Robert Pattinson as heartthrob and fan favorite Finnick Odair in "Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire"? Probably not even a little, but that's the rumor making the rounds on Wednesday.
The report comes courtesy of the blog Think McFly Think, which claims that Lionsgate -- the studio behind "The Hunger Games" -- is "chasing" Pattinson for the key "Catching Fire" role.
While it might seem totally ridiculous that Pattinson -- finally free from his obligations to the uber-popular "Twilight" franchise and tackling films like David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" -- would join Team Hunger Games, he does have one connection to the world of Panem: "Catching Fire" will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who worked with the star on "Water For Elephants." (Lawrence replaced Gary Ross as shepherd of the franchise earlier this year.)
"As with the first film, we won't be confirming, denying or commenting any casting rumors for this title," Lionsgate told HuffPost Entertainment in a statement. "We will announce news wide when there is official casting news to announce."
Finnick, who first appears in "Catching Fire," plays a key role in Suzanne Collins' best-selling "Hunger Games" trilogy. From District 4, he was the winner of the 65th annual Hunger Games and forms a friendly relationship with Katniss Everdeen following her victory at the 74th iteration of the Games.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, "Catching Fire" will arrive in theaters on Nov. 22, 2013. The film will begin shooting this summer.
puwede naman magpa tan di ba? hehehe.. Im excited dito sa sequel nito.
excited ako kung paanu lalaban sila Katniss at Petak ba? sa battle ng mga past winners. hehehe
No. I can't see Robert as anything but Edward!
Sana hindi totoo. And andaming kelangan baguhin sa kanya, accent, hair, ABS HAHAHAHA, tsaka masyado siyang malaki IMO.
Don't get me wrong, I love RP. But not if he plays Finnick.
The Panem world is going mad na because of this rumor. Magkakaroon ng rebellion for real if ever he will be cast.
okay na ako kay robert pattinson
saka ipasok niyo na rin si kristen stewart.
TBH only the Twitards wanted you for Finnick.USA Today spoke with Robert Pattinson and he told them he checked with his agent and he is NOT in the running to play Finnick Odair.
“I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games,” Pattinson tells USA TODAY. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent.”
“My agent was like, ‘No,’ ” Pattinson reports.
“(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part,” Pattinson says, breaking into a laugh. “I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”
The executives probably think because of the success of Twilight, R. Pattz will bring success to CF. Actually, they should be reassured that the film will be a success because of the 3 main actors from the first film. In other words, matatag na ang fanbase ng mga actors so they shouldn't worry about having a big name for supporting cast.
