Robert Pattinson Confirms He's Up for 'Dawn'

Robert Pattinson Confirms He's Up for 'Dawn'-photo

It's official, if not terribly surprising: Robert Pattinson is on board to reprise his role as sexy vampire Edward Cullen in Breaking Dawn, the upcoming adaptation of the fourth book in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga.

The 23-year-old actor broke the news while at the Cannes Film Festival in France, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

RPattz added that the producers don't yet know when Breaking Dawn will begin filming, in part due to his busy filming schedule. After finishing up filming for Twilight sequel New Moon in Italy later this week, Pattinson plans to star in the upcoming Summit flick Remember Me, about a man who spends six weeks trying to figure out if he's in love or not after meeting someone. After that, he'll head back to Vancouver in October to finish up filming Eclipse, the third installment of the Twilight series.

Pattinson also talked about the difficulties presented by Edward Cullen's diminished role in New Moon. While the script was tinkered with to give Cullen a bigger part than he had in the book, he's still essentially "a voice in Bella's head," the actor admits.

"You're playing a figment in Bella's imagination so I was trying to do it in a 2-D way," Pattinson offers. "I hope it doesn't translate onscreen as being boring."

Robert Pattinson, boring? Never!

    I hope they bring back Catherine Hardwicke for Breaking Dawn. As it's all about the marriage, honeymoon, birth, etc. it need Catherine's brilliant touch with relationships.

    It's a relief to here that he'll be doing "Breaking Dawn", the movie is pointless without him and it's my favorite book besides "Twilight". I don't know if they'll be able to do it in one film though, unless they go the "Gone With The Wind" route and slap in an Intermission. I'm anxious to see his new films, I really enjoyed "The Haunted Airman" and "How To Be". (Not forgetting "Goblet Of Fire" I saw a few years ago.} Don't know about "Dune" though, I'm still having nightmares over the first make of that one..;)
