The sequel to ‘The Hunger Games’ is gaining production moment for its November 2013 release date. ‘Catching Fire’ is in the re-writes stage according to IMBD and casting for new characters has been underway. The role of Finnick Odair seems to have the most interest. Last week, Robert Pattinson’s name was attached to the project, but that seems to be a standard tactic when garnering press.
This week, E! says that Lionsgate has narrowed it down to three established contenders. Armie Hammer, Taylor Kitsch or Garrett Hedlund are all said to be up for the role of Finnick. The report also mentions that the studio isn’t ruling out casting an unknown.
