Robert Pattinson has taken on a lot of different types of roles since the last film in The Twilight Saga hit theaters back in 2012. Of all of those roles, none have been huge box office projects like Twilight, but that doesn't mean Robert Pattinson is against taking on a role in another mainstream franchise at any point. In fact, he could actually see himself potentially returning to Twilight for another go. Here's what he said in a recent interview:
I mean, I'm always kind of curious. Anything where there's a mass audience -- or seemingly an audience for it -- I always like the idea of subverting people's expectations. So there could be some radical way of doing it, which could be quite fun. It's always difficult when there's no source material. But, yeah, I'm always curious.
Well, it's not a confirmation there's something in development, but Robert Pattinson actually seems surprisingly keen about the potential another Twilight film could have. Pattinson has stated in the past that he liked playing the Twilight character, but he has also been disinterested in more movies and has been even a little bit "snarky" about the property before.
It's been a few years since the final movie in The Twilight Saga hit theaters. Regardless, fans still love the films and re-watch them on occasion. The final movie in the franchise was also the highest-grossing movie of the series at the worldwide box office (although it wasn't the highest domestically), so it's safe to say there would be some interest if another Twilight project would be made. Suffice to say, the story of Bella and Edward really seemed to be played out by the end of Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, so we're not sure that a continuation of their epic romance would be necessary.
The good news? Edward is a vampire, so there are a lot of different ways to do another story with Robert Pattinson which wouldn't necessarily include the same storylines just being strung along a little further. Robert Pattinson mentioned there's no more source material to pull from in his interview with Yahoo, but the Harry Potter franchise has shown you can do a lot with minimal backstory, as the whole Fantastic Beasts series is being made off of what is essentially a textbook.
It should be noted that Robert Pattinson laughingly mentions that another Twilight movie could simply be an Edward "spinoff." There's been tentative hope that Twilight could eventually make more movies, and Edward Cullen could potentially be brought in for a smaller role if that were to happen, as well. The possibilities are not infinite, but there are a lot of directions this could go, and we'll let you know if Lionsgate ever decides to do more. In the meantime, you can catch Robert Pattinson in The Lost City Of Z right now.
