This is the article that came straight from USAToday.com about Robert Pattinson and all the “Catching Fire” casting rumors.
Robert Pattinson woke up Saturday morning at the Cannes Film Festival, the morning after his triumphant premiere in Cosmopolis, and saw internet reports that he was being considered for Catching Fire, the sequel to the The Hunger Games.
“I woke up this morning and saw all these things about me being cast in The Hunger Games,” Pattinson tells USA TODAY. “I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent.”
“My agent was like, ‘No,’ ” Pattinson reports.
“(My agent) was like no one’s going to offer you that part,” Pattinson says, breaking into a laugh. “I was like, thanks for the reassurance.”
Looks as if Robert Pattinson may not be offered the role as Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But remember NOTHING is final yet. We will deliver the official casting news as soon as it is released. We are just as excited to hear it as you are. Hopefully it is released soon.
