Not just yet, but it sounds like the movie franchise’s studio Lionsgate could be getting close to finally picking its man to play the dreamy tribute…
A source tells us at that the top three names being bantered about right now are Armie Hammer,Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund.
The source also says that a final decision from the studio may be announced as early as this week.
However, another source says the studio may also be looking at unknowns à la Brad Pitt in Thelma & Louise.
Filming is scheduled to begin in the fall with Francis Lawrence taking over the directing reigns fromGary Ross.
Catching Fire will be released on Nov. 22, 2013.
Keep in mind this is a still a rumor until confirmed, so there is a good chance this is not true. Either way, we certainly hope a decision is made very soon, we’ve waited long enough!
