The next installment on Suzanna Collins’ “The Hunger Games” will only open in cinemas on the 22nd of November 2013 but already, the news’ “channels” are clogged with rumors and the media are on fire trying to find out what’s in store.
We’re not sure how “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” will have its storyline tweaked to suit the first movie, but we know for a fact that Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy), and Donald Sutherland (President Snow) are all set to return.
Expect to also see Lenny Kravitz (Cinna), Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), and Stanely Tucci (Caesar Flickerman) in their original roles although their characters will be less prominent in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.
Now, the thing is, who will be casted to take on the new character that will be introduced in second installment of “The Hunger Games” franchise? Like we said, all channels are clogged with rumors. And just a few days ago, diehard fans were vocally outraged by the possibility that one vampire might take on the role as “Finnick Odair”.
Just in case you don’t know, Finnick is the extremely popular and dangerously good looking “District 4” competitor in the games. Tall, muscular, athletic, with tan skin, bronze-colored hair, and sea green eyes. So, uh, that led to people making a “Twilight” connection and directly linking Robert Pattinson to the said Finnick rumors?
However, Pattinson was quick to distinguish the heat from the raging “The Hunger Games” fans by telling USA Today, “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. I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”
Ah, okay. The world of Panem can relax now. For now, at least. Other celebrities rumored to take on potential star roles are such as:
For Finnick: Garrett Hedlund, Kellan Lutz, Trevor Donovan.
For Head Gamemaker: Ryan Reynolds, John Goodman.
For Johanna Mason: Mila Kunis, Naya Rivera, Emma Stone, Kristen Bell.
We’ll update this as we go along!
