Earlier this week, news had reported that Taylor Kitsch is possibly considered to play Finnick Odair in the upcoming sequel â€œThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire.â€
The actor responded via e-mail to Los Angeles Times in a carefully worded statement.
â€œNot going to happen,â€ he wrote.
And thatâ€™s all he wrote.
After big budget movies like â€œJohn Carterâ€ and â€œBattleship,â€ the actor may be looking to reboot his movie career with something else.
Now the possible names are narrowed down to â€œThe Lone Rangerâ€ actor Armie Hammer and â€œTRON: Legacyâ€ actor Garrett Hedlund.
Kitsch will appear later this summer in Oliver Stoneâ€™s crime drama â€œSavages.â€
â€œThe Hunger Games: Catching Fireâ€ will begin production soon.
