Robert Pattinson on ‘Catching Fire’ Rumors
Judging from the comments being posted all over the web on these so-called “articles” about Robert Pattison being chased by Lionsgate for ‘Catching Fire’ because of the whisperings of some movie gossip site, people are freaking out in a bad way about Robert Pattinson completing his trifecta of YA movies by edging into ‘The Hunger Games’. And who can blame them when it’s even starting to be picked up by local news stations?
The staff of Mockingjay.net has never regarded these articles as being anything but utter silliness and now we’ve finally got the word from the man himself, thanks to USA Today. Currently attending the Cannes Film Festival, Pattison was puzzled by the rumors and called his agent.
“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.”
And there you have it. Rest easy, tributes!
