Hunger Games’ sequel Catching Fire is fast becoming the most anticipated movie of next year. Fans are keeping up to date with every aspect of its pre-production from its filming location to its casting calls. The one aspect which have fans most worked up is the casting for Finnick Odair.
While several names have been floated for the part, there’s a new rumor that fan favorite and saga expert Robert Pattinson may be up for the role. Other actors which have been linked to Finnick are Justin Timberlake and even Liam Hemsworth’s own brother Chris Hemsworth.
However, the latest rumor claims that Lionsgate wants Pattinson in on Hunger Games’ sequel Catching Fire. All Twilight stars were banned from the original movie because of director Gary Ross but, as fans know, Ross is a thing of the past. His successor, Francis Lawrence, actually worked with Pattinson in Water for Elephants so it’s not a far stretch to imagine the Patz man breathing life into Finnick Odair.
What do you think about this rumor? Could it be true?
