Lionsgate was previously considering Taylor Kitsch, Garrett Hedlund, and Armie Hammer for the role of Finnick Odair in the sequel, ’The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ but the role has instead gone to Sam Claflin. The film will follow Katniss and Peeta who, after winning the Hunger Games, become the faces of a new revolution, forcing the Capital to take drastic measures and the two winners back into the games. Based on Suzanne Collins’ novel, the film is the second within a trilogy.
