It seems Kellan Lutz is ready to make the move from Twilight Saga vampire to The Hunger Games tribute.
Lutz, who famously said he wanted to audition for the first Hunger Games film but was told there "could not be any 'crossover' between the two franchises," has reinstated his interest for the second film, Catching Fire.
According to E! Online :-
Is there anyone who isn't a fan of The Hunger Games?!
Just ask Twilight star Kellan Lutz. The hunky actor says he loves The Hunger Games so much, he'd jump at the chance to be in one of the franchise's blockbuster films...
"I love the script, I love the movie, everything about it!" Lutz gushed to us last night at Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood bash at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood.
Lutz said he's "always been" a fan of the franchise. "I got hooked reading all those books," he said. "I remember before they ever started making a movie, I was like, "I would love to be a part of this!'"
Maybe Lutz could snag a part alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire? "That'd be really special," he smiled.
As for the never-ending Twilight-Hunger Games comparisons, Lutz said, "I feel like Twilight's kind of more girly and on the romance side and lacks the action and then Hunger Games is very much an action-packed movie that lacks some of the romance."
"But those stories, it shows that you don't have to stick to one certain formula," he said. "If you have these keys ingredients in the caldron it will make a great movie. It's great that there's fans for both of them."
Among the Hunger Games fan community, Lutz's name (along with many, many others) has been tossed around for the character "Finnick Odair." There's even a Facebook page devoted to the idea.
UPDATE: Apparently Kellan Lutz isn't trying for a spot in the second Hunger Games film after all.
On this issue, Kellan Lutz told OK Magazine, "I love all these gossip rumors saying how Kellan's positioning himself [to be in The Hunger Games sequel]. They're great books, [The Hunger Games was] a great movie, but I'm not [doing them]."
thnx to twilight examiner
