According to US blog Think McFly Think, Twilight dreamvamp Pattinson is being lined up to play Finnick Odair, a previous Hunger Games winner who joins the sequel.

Finnick Odair is described in the books as an incredibly handsome young man who smarms and charms with the influential citizens of the Capitol. If the reports are true, Pattinson will probably make the perfect fit for the role.

The Hunger Games is produced by Lionsgate, the same studio that delivered the Twilight films.

The first Hunger Games film is still in the US box office top 10, two months after it was released.
