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 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! 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 “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.
