[Movies] Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Will Not Be in Star Wars: Episode VII Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.21.2013
That's a no-brainer...
Just in case you had any bizarre nightmares about Twilight joining the Rebel Alliance, fear not because the obvious has been declared: Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are out of the running for Star Wars: Episode VII. Hollywood Life reports that according to the ever-popular "insiders" connected with the film, neither of the couple are being considered for a role.
The source reveals, "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...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."
A source close to the couple says that they aren't thinking of it but would be interested, noting, "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."
So there you have it. Rest easy on that front, at least.
