RUMOR: Robert Pattinson Joining CATCHING FIRE?
Just when fans thought they were rid of those unflattering comparisons forever! Sources have linked the Twilight actor to a prominent role in the Hunger Games sequel..
Many fans were fond of referring to The Hunger Games (until the movie actually came out of course) as "the next Twilight", and now that is almost certain to start up again for the sequel. Think McFly Think have posted an article linking Pattinson to the role of Finnick Odair, a former tribute, described as something of a ladies man, who gets dragged into the Third Quarter Quell (a Hunger Games contested by previous winners).
Francis Lawrence took over directing duties on the Hunger Games sequel when Gary Ross opted out. Pattinson has previously starred in Water For Elephants under Lawrence, so there is that connection. Of course that could also be where the rumor sprang from too. Pattinson seems to have attempted to shy away from more mainstream fare recently, such as David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis which we will see him in next, so jumping right back into another big teen-orientated franchise seems strange for him. But who knows, The Hunger Games was very well recieved by critics as well as fans, so that would certainly be a draw.
Anyway, it's still just a rumor for now but how would you guys feel about R-Patz joining this franchise? Would he suit the role of Finnick? There certainly seems to be a resemblance to the character if the various fan depictions are anything to go by. Sound off below.
