Robert Pattinson Is Not Starring In Sofia Coppola's New Film

Even though Rob and the talented director met for dinner to discuss an upcoming film of hers, her good friend and actor Stephen Dorff tells HollywoodLife.com that Rob’s not starring in the flick!

Robert Pattinson and Sofia Coppola would make a great team but there’s nothing in the works yet! HollywoodLife.com spoke with Hollywood heartthrob Stephen Dorff who starred in Sofia’s 2010 film Somewhere, and he gave us the scoop as to why Rob and Sofia dined in Hollywood on Feb. 3 at the The Musson & Frank Grill!

“I’ve actually got a bit of gossip for you, I don’t think he’s in it,” Stephen tells HollywoodLife.com. “But she did meet with him. She’s my good friend.”

We told you that Sofia has been wanting to work with Rob for a “long time” and that she hoped to have him star in an upcoming quirky dramedy.

“It was a smaller role of like a club door guy,” Stephen says.

Although Stephen won’t admit he’s a Twi-hard, he did play a vampire in the 1998 hit vampire superhero movie Blade.

“I like playing a vampire,” he told us. “I think Sofia almost directed one of the Twilight movies. I love working with her, she’s a great director, she has an original voice. There’s not much originality in the world today so when you get a chance to work with someone like her … I’d love to work with her again.”

Stephen stars in the upcoming film Brake, which hits theaters this March and goes On Demand Feb. 17.

sometimes we blow things out of proportion,and the media does not help either.let us leave rob to be himself .he has just began and has many years ahead of him.let us not praise him to heaven that directors and producers will be afraid to approach him.we all love him ,but time will tell how and where he heads to.one thing though is that we will always support him as his fans so long he keep putting smiles on our lips.

What a load of BS! I don’t think for a minute Sofia Coppola would offer something like that to Robert Pattinson. She is not stupid. Producer Wyck Godfrey was working with Rob on some book adaptation. They are probably looking for a director right now. Rob and Sofia could have met to discuss if she would be interested to take the job.

I love the fact that Rob now has the means to pick and choose his projects.
