Remember when we told you that Kellan Lutz wanted to join The Hunger Games franchise? You can see our post about it HERE to refresh your memory. Well, it looks like that isn’t going to happen. He has stated that he will not be a part of Catching Fire. Interestingly enough, based on the comments we have read, his presence in the film might have actually been received positively. See story below from the Belfast Telegraph.
Kellan Lutz has denied rumours that he is set to star in the next Hunger Games film.
The Twilight star has been part of the hit vampire franchise and says although he likes the record-breaking film and books, he is not going to be a part of Catching Fire.
He told OK! magazine that he is “not” doing the sequel and hasn’t delved “into it enough to say whose side I’d ever be on.”
“I like it,” Kellan said about the film. “I love all these gossip rumours saying how Kellan’s positioning himself [to be in The Hunger Games sequel]. They’re great books, they’re great movies, but I’m not [doing them].
The Hollywood actor will be promoting the final installment of the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soon.
“It’s like your last football game you play,” he shared. “Your coach tells you you’re going to miss it and, of course, all you want to do is get out there and knock some helmets off. So, it’s been a blessing.”
“It’s finally coming down to the end and it’s starting to feel a little weird because it’s been a huge part of my life. I look forward to doing the premieres and seeing the cast.”
