A word of caution -- this is currently a rumor, but a fun rumor nonetheless. According to TotalFilm by way of ThinkMcFlyThink, Lionsgate is furiously courting the "Twilight" star to take on the role of Finnick Odair, an ex-tribute who loves the ladies and gets dragged into the Third Quarter Quell -- the best of the best of the Hunger Games featuring previous winners, hence Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) back in the ring.
So, here are the reasons why this rumor could be true:
First, Lionsgate is now the home of Summit Entertainment, the studio that "Twilight" built.
Second, "Catching Fire" will be directed by Francis Lawrence, the guy who gave us "Water for Elephants" starring Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon.
Could be a possibility, perhaps exciting? Pattinson will have the privilege of starring in two teenage-driven franchises, "Twilight" as Edward Cullen, and maybe "The Hunger Games" as Finnick Odair.
