Robert Pattinson Being Courted for Catching Fire: Rumors are Flying

by at . Comments

The Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson may jump aboard another wildly successful teen book series adaptation. Rumors are swirling that Pattinson is being pegged for the role of Finnick Odair in the second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire. Check out the Catching Fire cover for the book.

Robert Pattinson at the Breaking Dawn Premiere

While the end of Twilight, and his role in the upcoming David Cronenberg film Cosmopolis have led to speculation that Pattinson may be trying to distance himself from his teen idol image (watch the Cosmopolis trailer), he may be swayed by the fact that director Francis Lawrence, whom Pattinson worked with on Water For Elephants, will be directing Chasing Fire.

With shooting beginning in a few months, they'd better snag up Pattinson fast. Catching Fire has a release date of November 22, 2013.

Speaking of release dates, the Hunger Games DVD release date has been announced, and pre-orders begin this Friday!

No es que se "apoyen", si los reporteros no saben hacer otra cosa me1s que pranguterles por la otra saga que quieren que hagan, no pueden decir que no van a contestar porque ahi todos dirian"ay, pinche bola de mamones que no quierenhablar de Twilight", porque ya las conozco.Ahora si mal no recuerdan a los de Twilight les paso lo mismo cuando salieron y los reporteros no hacian mas que compararlos con los de Harry Potter y a cada oportunidad les preguntaban.Y ahora recuerden cuando Daniel admitio que no habia visto ninguna de las peliculas y que no habia leido los libros de twilight las fans de twilight se le fueron encima y un pelo de patan no le bajaron.Entonces quien las entiende.Yo por mi parte se que las tres historias son muy diferentes las unas de la otras y que para las tres saga hay espacio bueno por parte de Harry Potter ya termino, pero aun asi lo mencionan.Y como bien dijo Daniel ni siquiera son competencia en taquilla porque las de Potter nunca las estrenaron en el mismo mes o dia que las de Twilight y con la de Hunger estan siguiendo el mismo patron, asi que no son competencia para nadie, las historias son completamente diferentes y lamentablemente los que los medios quieren y consiguen con sus preguntas es que entre los fans se vayan a la yugular los unos de los otros.Yo espero ver esta, emepee a leeer el libro apenas y se me hace interesante y a esperar a noviembre por la ultima parte de Breaking.

OMG NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please say it isn't so! He would make a TERRIBLE Finnick Odair. In the book Finnick is described as gorgeous with a great body. Robert Pattinson does not equal that. He's awkward and strange and definitely NOT gorgeous. I really hope they go with someone else. Finnick is my favorite character in Catching Fire and I don't want this movie to be ruined for me because of bad casting.
