Just like a sneaky velociraptor attack we’ve been drawn recently to focus on Disney and Lucasfilm’s latest Star Wars news while we’re completely unaware of the deadly threat approaching us on our blind side. Yes, there’s a casting rumour tearing through the Internet that Robert ‘sparkle‘ Pattinson could be in the frame for the role of the new Indiana Jones.
Before you black out your windows with bin bags and look out that hardcore German techno album be mindful that the source of this vomit inducing rumour generated from that pillar of truth and factual accuracy The Daily Star. That being said you’d be a fool to completely disregard this heinous piece of hearsay as the following explains:
One Los Angeles insider said: “Disney is looking at its long-term options for the Indiana Jones franchise. They feel that the series has huge potential on many levels, starting with the films leading to other spin-offs like games which can generate more money than movies. Rob is top of the initial list because he has showed his acting stripes away from Twilight.”
This is the very reason why I personally believe such a move by Disney and Lucasfilm could become a reality. Pattinson has already cultivated a massive following thanks to his role in the Twilight movies, which means he carries with him a ready-made audience to part with their money at the box office. Dark days indeed.
