Madeline Stowe Reveals Why Robert Pattinson Will Not Be In ‘Unbound Captives’

HollywoodLife.com caught up with sexy Revenge star Madeleine at the prestigious gala in Los Angeles, and she revealed that Unbound Captives’ production schedule has been pushed back again.

“It will not happen this year, but we are looking at 2014 because Hugh Jackman is booked until then, so we will start it up in 2014!” said Madeleine.

Madeleine then exclusively revealed that Rob is no longer going to be starring in the role of Phineas, because he is too old!

“I love Rob so much, but he is now a man!” said Madeleine. “And he was kind of a boy when we first got into this film, so we are on the hunt for a new Phineas right now, that is the piece of casting we are concerned about because Rachel Weiz is a part of the film as well. Thank you so much for asking.”

What a shame!

Rob was originally cast in the film in 2011, and Madeleine had previously admitted that she thought Rob might be too old for the part, but she was so “in love” with him that she considered changing the age! By June 2012, Rob was “still attached” to the film, but with another set back, Rob has lost the part.

What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Are you sad that Rob will no longer be in the film?
