Robert Pattinson Talks Another ‘Twilight’ Film

Robert PattinsonRobert Pattinson just had his 28th birthday on May 13 and that officially makes him old! Hey, I'm not saying that. He's still a whipper snapper to me. But Rob thinks he's old. At least for Twilight. He told Variety that he's now officially too old to play the love-lorn sparkly vampire Edward.

Rob broke the news this way:

I couldn't do another Twilight movie. I'm too old.

Well, that about sums it up! And I guess given that vampires don't age, you couldn't really explain why and how Edward suddenly looks like he's on the cusp of middle age. Of course, Rob still looks quite young. He could pass for a high school student. Or maybe the father of one anyway. Haha. Kidding. Rob, you look fab!

There is another book that could come to the screen, Midnight Sun, which is a retelling of Twilight from Edward's point of view. Guess Rob doesn't want the role. It would be pretty awkward if he and Kristen were to star in that anyway -- considering how their real life romance ended. But who else could possibly play those parts? Any time classic movies are remade with younger people in the lead roles (think Footloose or Carrie), it's never very good.

Rob also told Variety that no one thought Twilight would turn out to be so big -- he said:

No one thought it was going to be a big deal.

Hmm. Sounds like Rob was living in a bubble. The Twilight books were pretty huge before the film. I didn't even read them and yet I knew there was big anticipation for the movies.

Rob should definitely not do any more Twilight films anyway. Despite being too old for Edward (not really, but what he thinks), he should concentrate on broadening his acting horizons. It's very easy for actors who have played hugely iconic roles to never get anything good again (think of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker -- what'd that get him?). Yep, now is the time for Rob to prove he can really act.

Plus, anyone else as Edward would just be wrong!

Do you think there should ever be another Twilight film if Rob won't be in it?

Joy Ankrom Arnold

You can't have another Twilight without Rob in it, he's one of th emain star's. That's like saying oh here's peanut butter sandwich without the jelly, it just don't work!

Not without Rob, it wouldn't be the same.

Everybody is wanting to see another Twilight but if Rob is not going to be in it I do not think anybody will watching it. Twilight wont be the same without Rob and nobody can replace Rob as Edward. I sure wouldn't see another one if Rob is not in it and i know a bunch of people who wouldn't either.

Sarah Glaspey

No I do not think there should be another twilight film if Rob doesn't play the role.

Katelyn Roth

I think rob should just do one more twilight movie

Tiffany Vincent

it wouldn't be the same with out rob in it. cause if they say he looks too old then they would prob say that about all the other main people. if they changed everyone I know there would be a TON of upset people
