Director Sofia Coppola, 40, thinks Twilight star Rob Pattinson, 25, should lighten his choice of roles with a quirky romance dramedy.
“Sofia has wanted to work with Rob for a long time,” a movie exec tells HollywoodLife.com. “She thinks he would be great in a movie similar to Lost in Translation.”
And apparently, Sofia believes Rob could be her next muse to resurrect her own career.
“She is actually hoping to make a comeback with Rob. They have met a few times to discuss the project,” continues the source. “Sofia wants to write and direct the film but wants Rob to be involved as much as possible. She thinks Rob has a magnificent sense of humor and wants to show it off. She wants to show everyone his quirky, eccentric self.” (x)
Rob was spotted meeting with Sofia on 2/3, but this is just a rumor for now.
@LoveIsGreat_ met Rob and Kristen in Paris airport today
She got Kristen’s autograph here but not Rob’s and they said no to pictures.
Kristen told her she loves Paris and they were supposedly on the way to LA.
There have been a lot of fake sightings lately and this one could be too, but the autograph looks real, so who knows.
Rob is rumored to be attached to this film, Child 44.
Here is the synopsis:
Rob would play Leo, a strong-willed former member of the Soviet state police who investigates a series of child killings that are being covered up by the very group he used to lead.
Nothing is confirmed, but we’ll keep you updated!

I suppose there is hope since the DVD isn’t going to be released for a few months, but right now, it’s not listed with the special features. Instead, the director, Bill Condon is doing the commentary solo.
How about we all complain to Summit? The commentary is one of the only good reasons for buying the DVD, they are going to lose major $$.
