Robert Pattinson Will Not Be Cast in ‘Catching Fire’

Hunger Games fans have already started to speculate who will play the new characters that will be introduced in Catching Fire. Rumors flew that Twilight star Robert Pattinson was up for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games sequel.

In an interview with USA Today, Pattinson quashed those rumors: “I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games. I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent… [my agent] was like no one’s going to offer you that part.”

To be fair, Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence had worked with Pattinson on the film adaptation of Sara Gruen‘s Water for Elephants.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton included Pattinson as a candidate who could play Finnick. Follow this link to view a gallery with Hilton’s picks for Johanna Mason, Mags and Alma Coin.

Upon his hiring, Lawrence made this promise to Hunger Games fans on Facebook: “At the end of the day, all of the work that I put in to my movies is for you — the fans. Make sure to post and let me know what you’re most excited to see in this adaptation as we aim to make something truly faithful and spectacular!”

The fans will have to wait until November 22, 2013 for the film. The DVD of the first movie will come out on August 18th with three hours of extra bonus footage.
