It’s official! Robert Pattinson’s ‘Water for Elephants’ director Francis Lawrence will direct ‘Catching Fire’! Is he going to cast R-Patz as the handsome Finnick Odair?

Finnick O’dair is described in Catching Fire to be very tall, have dreamy eyes, a beautiful head of hair and have many women vying for his heart. Robert Pattinson definitely fits the profile.

Lionsgate offered Francis Lawrence the open director position for the Hunger Games sequel — and considering he’s worked with Rob before on Water for Elephants — we wouldn’t be surprised if he brought him on for Catching Fire.

Yes, The Hunger Games franchise has been very public about keeping away from Twilight, but I think it still could be a possibility.

We can only dream!
