We previously reported on the rumours of Robert Pattinson joining The Hunger Games cast for the sequel.
Robert denied the rumours, during his appearance to promote “Cosmopolis” at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday, May 26. He told reporters that he wasn’t even offered a part!
Think McFly Think originally reported that the producers said they wanted Pattinson to play Finnick Odair. This is what sparked the rumour.
When Lionsgate was asked about it they said,
“As with the first film, we won’t be confirming, denying on any casting rumors for this title.”
Pattinson spilled the beans to 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, no one’s going to offer you that part.’ I was like, Thanks for the reassurance.”
It’s to bad, I was hoping he would be Finnick.
Hopefully they cast someone just as handsome!
