Following Lionsgate’s acquisition of Twilight Saga studio Summit, the CEO was quick to say that he’d like to see additional Twilight films beyond Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Pattinson addressed this news at a recent publicity event to explain why he can’t play Edward again.

The Press Association reports:

The 25-year-old joked that he is already past his prime to portray the heartthrob vampire in any other big-screen adaptations of Stephenie Meyer’s novels, at the world premiere of his new film Bel Ami in Berlin, reported the New York Daily News.

“I’d be curious what she would write, but I just think I’d probably be too old by the time (they did it),” he said.

“I’m already too old. But yeah, it’d be kind of interesting,” he added.

Do you think Pattinson would be too old to play Edward if they shot a new Twilight film, say, in 2014 or 2015?

We doubt there will be future films, as Lionsgate has stated that they’d wait for Meyer to write another Twilight book first.

    No, he is only 25 years old. I do not think for one chapter of Twilight is too old.

      still i want rob to portray edward… they can do it by make up to look him young…

  • Amy

    He’s just dying to get rid of the vampire sparkle already, let him be!

  • Mel

    Well he’s supposed to be 17 and you can already tell he’s no longer that age. So I agree he would start looking too old.

  • Kelly

    Honestly, I hate how much older they all look in Breaking Dawn vs. Twilight.  That’s part of the charm of the whole story – the Cullens never age!  I’d hate to see a 28 yea old Rob trying to look 17 again. 

  • Goodaim78

    they can do a lot with make up and special effects!!

  • PotionWillow207

    Well, first of all if they’re going to make more Twilight movies they will have to do it without Stephenie Meyer. She has made it very clear that she is stepping away from the Twilight universe for awhile, if not forever.

    Second, yes Robert Pattinson is too old to play Edward Cullen and it sounds like he doesn’t want to. Let the man be. It’s time for him to move on to bigger and better things. Every franchise come to an end, as well it should. Otherwise people get bored and it risks becoming something other than what it was intended to be.

    Good! I’m a huge Twilight fan and I dont think there should be any more Twilight movies!! They’ll just ruin a good thing, Greedy basters!!!

    LOL I feel for Rob in this!! He’s prob dying to get out of the sparkly vampire image!

    David Boreanaz played Angel for eight years and you can definitely see the age difference. But we forgive him because he’s David…. and he never sparkled.

  • Celechiab

    i don’t think Rob would be too old, look at what they did with Bella making her look skinny and bony in saga part 1, if they wanted to they could make Rob (Edward) look younger. i think they should make more twilight.

  • Susalka

    Ok guys, we all know Rob hates the whole Twilight franchise, let the guy leave this horrible role already! He needs to be in Jane Austen type films anyway, he needs his British back!

    i think that his the best Edward there is. and he looks great. im not sure if im gonna like another Twilight movie with out Robert

  • Pernille


  • Niky

    i think that he would be more than able to play it again they could use a little make up and that’s it, and twilight without Rob isn’t nowhere as good!!! though i reckon he should do a new movie.

  • Skunkpussy

    dont u dare quit twilight is the best films ever please dont quit

  • Kellywestnj

    Yous are all stupid he’s not old n dosnt look old n they look better now then all the rest of them hope they make a new one

  • true

    he could do it all they have to do is put makeup on him to make robert look younger

  • Angel

    what they should do is move the focus off of Bella and Bdward and move the focus more toward Jacob and Renesemay

  • Phillip Hakeem
