Reports emerged yesterday that Angelina Jolie will develop a film based on a BBC miniseries called Unforgiven. The potential project would grow from the same partnership behind Jolie’s upcoming Bosnian War movie.
Now rumors are buzzing that Robert Pattinson is also attached to Unforgiven.
“There’s speculation in the wind that Robert Pattinson has been tapped for this project,” reports Lainey Gossip. The actor met late last year with Jolie attorney Robert Offer, observes the site, “so his recent trip to see [her movie] Salt with his agent is suddenly rife with new possibility.”
While it’s always possible a high-profile actor like Pattinson could join Unforgiven — especially, as the site notes, to demonstrate his range — as of now, he is not involved.
A Pattinson insider tells Gossip Cop that rumors connecting him to the film are inaccurate.
Gossip Cop will follow all developments.

All i can say is Thank God! BD2 would be a bit of a let down at the end with no battle. I wonder what Mrs. Meyer thinks of this? Here's a bit of an interview with Melissa and MTV . . .
Fortunately, Melissa is the best woman to talk to considering she is writing the not-yet-finished script. She told us that the two screenplays (for "Part 1" and "Part 2") are about 75 to 80 percent completed. A bit surprisingly, it's the finale of the second film that is giving her the toughest time, and not "Part 1's" infamous birthing scene.
"The final battle sequence is a big challenge because it lasts 25 pages," she said. "It's almost an entire three-act story in and of itself. You have to track (keep it all in one setting) hundreds of characters. It's an enormous challenge to choreograph on the page and for Bill [Condon] to choreograph on the stage."
It sounds like Melissa has written versions of both screenplays, but it's just the matter of perfecting them that is the issue. Melissa said she hasn't had a chance to go over her ideas with director Bill Condon yet, which makes finalizing the script impossible.
"I've written a couple of drafts [of the scene]; I haven't gotten with Bill [to go over it] yet," she said. "That's the next big hurdle to sit down with the stunt coordinator and create the ballet. It's a lot of work. I'm exhausted, but we're intent on making them the best scripts yet."
There is news today that one of the actors that plays a Cullen in the popular movie series has landed himself a job on the small screen. Not for a one episode guest spot either! The role will be recurring, so this means you might get your weekly 'Twilight' dose until Breaking Dawn hits at the end of 2011.
According to Ace Showbiz, Jackson Rathbone has been snagged by ABC's new superhero series, "No Ordinary Family." He will play a character named Trent that befriends the daughter of the family. He is also the recent victim of a home invasion. Looks like the family will help Trent catch the bad guys that did it!
The story behind the new ABC series is a family that ends up having superpowers after returning from a family vacation to the Amazon River. What happens while there to give them their powers? Wait to find out in the series premiere!
"No Ordinary Family" will premiere on ABC on September 28th. No word on when Jackson Rathbone will start to appear on the series.

Here's a review of Jackson Rathbone's band 100 Monkeys and their album titled Grape.
I’m blissfully unaware of anything Twilight, but apparently 100 Monkeys boasts one of the movie’s stars. I have to say, that’s quite surprising. 100 Monkeys not only have an awesome name, but their sound is as far from radio-friendly teenybopper as you can get.
The band bounces between different retro styles, some very retro – there’s the soul bravado of “Arizona,” the hideous disco of “Orson Brawl”, a good 50s-style r&b ballad (“Looker”), the twang-infused “Junkie,” the syncopated, muted-trumpet danse macabre of “Reaper,” and so forth.
The album is exceptionally, maybe even distractedly, eclectic, but the permeating sound is that of feverish, smoky-club anti-folk, complete with bongos and a semi-spoken word delivery. Kind of like if Tom Waits, Ween, Oingo Boingo, and CAKE fused and turned into a giant hip daddy-o beatnik.
This isn’t a “great” album that you’ll want to listen to repeatedly, but the band performs competently and executes a more accessible take on decades of American music than, say, the genteel insanity of The Residents.
Bottom Line: Bongo fury!
Notable Tracks: The Monkey Song, Sweet Face, Looker
"I haven't seen anything too crazy. There's a wide variation," he revealed to MTV News about all the "Twilight"-related merchandise. "There's ChapStick. There's makeup kits. There's the T-shirts, and there's chocolate bars."
There isn't a particular item that weirds him out, just the fact that there's so, so much of it. "It's just weird to see all those different things," he said. "I don't [have any of it]. I definitely do not."
While Stewart's face isn't on anything too out of the ordinary, she's heard stories about some of the stuff the guys are on. "I've heard that there are pretty obscene items that you can get with the boys' faces on them," she said. "I'm actually just on T-shirts and dolls and stuff, to be honest. I don't think I'm on bed sheets and stuff like that, which is still funny-weird."
Just how strange does it get? Pattinson will explain. "I like the glitter lube stuff. I thought that was really funny," he laughed. "I was just like, 'I did not sign that! Where is the paper?' I think, yeah, I'm pretty sure it's glitter. ... I think it's lube."
What what! Seriously in this economy they are lucky any of us go to the fucking movies
'Now, Summit has officially announced that "Breaking Dawn, Part 2" will open November 2012, and with that, another assumption seems to be taking hold among fans and on the Web: After "Eclipse" failed to wildly out-gross "New Moon" at the box office, Summit got spooked about a summer release date and fled to more familiar autumn territory. But based on our conversations with Summit and box-office analysts, that's simply not the case.
First off, it's important to note that despite all this talk about a weaker-than-expected performance for "Eclipse," its $289 million haul will eventually surpass the $297 million that "New Moon" pulled in last fall, according to Box Office Mojo.
When you consider that sequels like "Shrek Forever After" and "Sex and the City 2" underperformed in the crowded summer-movie season, Summit has to be extremely pleased with the box-office business of "Eclipse." So if it's not a fear of summer that persuaded Summit to deliver both "Breaking Dawn" films in the fall, then what was it? A careful examination of the 2012 summer calendar.
"The lesson is that it's all about positioning a film at a time when it will face as little direct competition as possible," explained Phil Contrino, editor of BoxOffice.com. "Summit was wise to stay away from summer 2012, because it's shaping up to be a record-breaking season."
"The Avengers," "Madagascar 3" and "Men in Black 3" are all set to drop that May, followed by "Star Trek 2" in June, and then new installments of "Spider-Man" (which already occupies the Fourth of July slot held this year by "Eclipse"), "Ice Age" and "Batman."
"Why compete with an amazing slate like that if you don't have to?" Contrino added. "I'm sure 'Breaking Dawn, Part 2' would still open very well during a summer that crowded, but its audience would be devoured very quickly."
The point, then, is not that summer is a poor time to release a "Twilight" film but that fall simply presents less competition, which is not to say that there will be no box-office battle in autumn. "Breaking Dawn, Part 1" is set to open against "Happy Feet 2" on November 18, 2011, while the second in the two-part finale will compete with "Monsters Inc. 2" on November 16, 2012. But when you consider the more jam-packed summer season and the fact that an entire year will have passed between "Twilight" flicks — as opposed to the eight months between "New Moon" and "Eclipse" — the fall 2012 release date makes perfect sense.
"There's a mood and spirit to these movies that make them play really well in the fall. They're darker, they're more emotional than standard summer fare, and thematically, fall is a great fit," said John Singh, a box-office analyst for Flixster. "It also allows the audience to build even greater anticipation — rather than seeing the follow-up just a few months later. This gives them a full year to anticipate the final film in a series that has generated hugely positive response from its fanbase."'
Skars isn't the only vamp with a Generation Kill past. Before you could find Kellan posing in his Calvin's, the actor, and even then BFF to Ashley Greene, landed a part in HBO's show before hitting it big in Twilight with only a couple of lines. See, a six-pack can make you famous!
Alice Cullen was always superhot, just not as successful. Before having Twilight or Maxim cover girl on her résumé, Greene had to fight for parts like "Kim No. 4" in Otis, as seen here. Now she's having puppy playdates with Miley Cyrus.
Even though Ian is perhaps best known for staring in The Vampire Diaries, this guy was always hot in our books. We first took notice of Somerhalder here in Rules of Attraction, and have had our eyes on him all the way from Lost to his hit show on the CW.
It's no surprise that the fanged "cold ones" have taken over Hollywood, and in some cases, people's lives. But don't count on their reign ending anytime soon.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, calculations show that this vampire craze, which started back in 2008 with the release of Twilight, has generated an insane amount of money!
How much, you ask?
Seven billion dollars (!) in less than two years! It can't all be credited to Edward and Bella, though, sorry.
In addition to Stephenie Meyer's saga are books by a ton of other authors writing about sucking blood all night. TV shows like True Blood and Vampire Diaries also put the undead on the map and brought in some dough. Even the Twilight spoof Vampires Suck racked in a whopping $20 million in the box office.
So if you thought this fad was coming to its end, you thought wrong, my friend.
Wow, somehow I doubt Kristen would get jealous over Ashley. LOL LMFAO WTF!!! Yes that deserved alot of those, sorry I apologize. What a bunch of twats, I don't think Kristen would EVER be jealous over Ashley. I have a feeling that the 2 of them aren't friends at all, since Ashley is a total girly girl and sometimes she's a little fake-ish. Kristie gave me a prediction (even though Kristie has a serious girl crush on miss A) that she will end up on one of the shows like Entertainment Tonite or whatev. Pretty sure she nailed it, I can see her along side Mark McGrath with their teeth so white it hurts my pupils.
"Kristen Stewart is rumoured to be getting jealous of her ‘Twilight’ co-star Ashley Greene. The reason being, Alice Cullen of Twilight flicks are getting loads of praise during the promotional tours. Until now the main lady in focus in the Twilight franchise has been Kristen but of late Ashley has picked it up really well and ha become quite a favourite among the Twilight fans.
The focus is shifting, is that the reason the green monster is coming out? May be, and even more. Kris has always been criticized by the pundits for the lacking the oomph quotient and being quite clumsy when she walks the red carpet or at the award ceremonies. On the other hand Ashley has become the new fashion diva and even showed off her hot bikini body and everybody loved it.
Kristen also didn’t show up at the Teen Choice Awards but Ashley showed up and even received the ‘Scene Stealer’ award that night. But instead of being worried about Ashley becoming the focus of the media now, Kris should be happy about it.
Stewart has been complaining about the pressures of the fame and often enough even cracked up under it, so now she should be thankful that there is another lady from the ‘Twilight’ franchise who would be able to help her to take the focus off Kris.
But be sure, next time you ask this question to Stewart or Greene, they will brush it off as a rumour. We too think this is a rumour as both the ladies seem to be pretty comfortable being who they are to be plagued by such insecurities."
"YES! I finally came in Number 1 in something!" the good-natured actor tweeted Wednesday evening, referring to RS writer Peter Travers' list of "The Best and Worst Vampires on Film and TV."
"Facinelli is a solid actor, but playing Carlisle Cullen, the white-haired head of the fang-challenged Cullen vampire family, he looks about as terrifying as 'Project Runway' winner Austin Scarlett, whom Carlisle closely resembles," Travers opined in his list.
"Thank you Mr. Travers," Facinelli tweeted in response. "As Carlisle is a compassionate humanitarian, and anti-vampire in nature, being the worst vampire was quite the compliment. Although, you had me at "solid actor". :) I did find the comparison to Austin Scarlett utterly ridiculous though ... He has way better cheek bones."
I, very much love Rosalie the character and have become fond of Nikki Reed's portrayal of her. I adored her background scenes in Eclipse and can't wait to see the relationship with her and Bella become more and apparently neither can she!
"I find that people who've read the books kind of understand Rosalie, and that's been the biggest challenge with playing her — when you make this series, clearly it has to revolve around this epic love story," Reed said of the big three: Edward (Robert Pattinson), Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner). "The rest of us are kind of fighting in the background to have any kind of moment. You're always afraid that the moment you do have, you'll overdo because you wanted to have something behind it," she explained. "Even if it's just a look or a sentence or a glance."
Reed said she was happy to explore some of Rosalie's backstory in "Eclipse," and that she hopes she'll get to dive into a bit more of her vamp's history in "Breaking Dawn."
"With 'Breaking Dawn,' we're only going to go deeper into that. I haven't read the script — I don't know what it's going to be like — but I think Melissa's done a great job in keeping them pretty close to the books. I can't think of anything we've missed in the films. I have faith that Bella and I are going to get really close."
Despite not having written a single book in the past year, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer raked in an eye-popping $40 million from her sexy vampire tales, Forbes reports. Meyer landed the second place spot on the magazine's new ranking of the world's highest paid authors, easily eclipsing Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling. About $7 million of Meyer's 2009 windfall came from movies adapted from the Twilight series, with most of the balance attributable to previously published works. In June the third Twilight adaptation made $175 million in its first six days. Meyer still has a long way to go to catch up with the world's highest paid author, James Patterson, who snagged the #1 spot with a whopping $70 million paycheck. Unlike Meyer however, Patterson has to keep churning out thrillers; he's contracted to produce another 17 books by the end of 2012. Stephen King placed third on the list with $34 million, while Rowling languishes in last place with a measly $10 million. Of course she's already a billionaire
"The hit movie franchise, "The Twilight Saga" may have to delay or cancel upcoming filming of sequel in Brazil.
Gathering the facts:
Summit Entertainment is considering delaying their hit franchise, “Twilight's” filming in Brazil. Brazilian violence in Rio de Janeiro may delay filming that was scheduled for later this month. Last weekend’s clash between drug gangs and the Brazilian police in Rio has made movie executives reconsider their filming schedule.
35 civilians were taken hostage in a hotel this past Saturday. The standoff ended in a gunfight that left one dead and four police officers wounded. City officials are now trying to persuade Summit Entertainment executives that everything is safe in the city and that they can stick to their filming schedule.
Around the water cooler:
What would happen if the “Twilight” movie executives delayed filming in Brazil or cut Rio completely out of the movie? At the worst, this movie delay could cost some at considerable money in rescheduling or relocating. It is however, understandable that the executives are showing concern for their actors’ and production crew's safety. The real question is whether or not last weekend's violence was just an isolated incident.
A final thought:
If the filming is delayed the final release date of the two-part installment of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" should not be affected."
