It’s being reported that Twilight star Robert Pattinson has been cast to star in the upcoming The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, which is being helmed by his Water for Elephants director, Francis Lawrence. Pattinson is rumored to have been cast as a tribute from District 4 – Finnick Odair. This has many fans expressing their outrage on social media sites such as Twitter. Both the Twilight and Hunger Games series are based on popular, teen focused novels which fans feel passionate about. Twilight fans feel betrayed that their favorite vampire is moving on to a competing franchise, while some Hunger Games fans, accustomed to disliking the the Twilight stars, are also displeased to see him joining the cast of Catching Fire. The final cast list for the film is set to be released in December. Until then, the controversy is likely to continue, with fans of both series expressing their disdain. ~Stacy Raivich
