The force will not be with Rob and Kristen. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that the ‘Twilight’ stars are not even being considered for the new ‘Star Wars’ sequels, but Rob may be able to take on an iconic role in a spin-off film!
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are getting dissed! Many names are being thrown around to star in Star Wars: Episode VII, but Rob and Kristen are not being considered because producers at Disney do not want to deal with a “hysterical” fan base.
Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson In ‘Star Wars’? — They WON’T Be Offered Roles
Rob, 27, and Kristen, 23, clearly don’t have a high midi-chlorian count, because the powers that be at Disney do not want them playing Jedi knights!
“There is no chance that Kristen Stewart or Rob Pattinson will be offered a role for any of the films, they won’t even be sent the script,” a source close to the film tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
So why exactly are two of Hollywood’s hottest actors not being considered for the new set of films? Our source reveals:
No matter what any agent says or whatever a star says, they want to work with JJ Abrams and be a part of the Star Wars saga because it’s bound to be the biggest grossing new set of films of all time. It’s a no brainer, but those at Disney and JJ want nothing to do with the hoopla and the reaction of the hardcore fans would have if Rob or Kristen were cast. They are being judged enough on every move they make that [producers] don’t want to make things hysterical to the fan base.
The new film will feature a badass female hero described as “late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit,” and a male who is “a late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.”
That totally describes Rob and Kristen! However, we will never see them in those roles, however, a source close to the couple EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com that Rob and Kristen would be interested.
“They aren’t thinking of Star Wars themselves right now, but if it was offered to them, they would 100% talk to executives, JJ and Disney. It would be foolish for them not to take that call.”
It is probably for the best that Rob and Kristen do not star in such iconic films, as they have both only just finished starring in The Twilight Saga.
Robert Pattinson To Star As Hans Solo?
Not all hope is lost for Rob, however. He may be teaming up with Chewbacca as the new Han Solo! Disney is considering making a spin-off movie about the most handsome Jedi — a role made famous by Harrison Ford — but Rob will have to fight a bunch of unknown faces for the part.
“They want an unknown mostly to take that role and they have also been open to see what happens as there is plenty of time before that film shoots,” says our source. “Who knows who will be famous and up and coming by then.”
So who IS being considered to star in the new film?
‘Stars Wars': First Choice To Play Han Solo
“Casey Affleck has been brought up a couple times in meetings,” says our source. However, “it is too soon to get anything more on the Han Solo project because so many things can change before then.”
Rob may still have a shot, then!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you bummed Rob and Kristen won’t be in Star Wars? Or is this for the best?
