Robert Pattinson has proven to be an exceptional and quite versatile actor, capable of playing a superhero like Batman, a sailor without sanity in The lighthouse or an excellent lover in Water for elephants. However, the interpretation that catapulted him to fame was that of the vampire Edward Cullen in the saga of Twilight.
Although Pattinson has said on several occasions that this role has not been the best in his career, it is possible that he will repeat it again, but not in a second.pin off of Twilightbut in a new adaptation of dracula, by Bram Stoker, which would make him a high-ranking vampire. Something like the “king of darkness”.
Daniel Richtman, a specialized journalist, reported that director Chloé Zhao is about to finish the script for a new version of dracula that will show the mythical vampire in a futuristic world.
Zhao would take his project to the big screen as soon as possible and wants Robert Pattinson to be the lead. Although it is not well known if the actor has already made a casting, whether he was contacted directly because of his background playing similar roles or because he has the perfect physical traits to embody the most popular vampire of the last century.
At the moment it is unknown which characters will be part of this story and the exact place where it will take place. However, it is rumored that Pattinson is already in talks to accept the role and, apparently, he could confirm his collaboration in a short time, since he does not dislike the idea of returning to the nightlife in the body of a vampire.
On the other hand, the fans of Pattinson have been somewhat divided with the news, as some expected it to be part of the series spin-off of Twilightwhich is already being prepared by Lionsgate Television.
As for Pattinson, the actor has not confirmed or denied his participation in any of the projects, so we will still have to wait for official news, either from him or from his representative.
