Robert Pattinson is the subject of a new casting rumor that claims he’s slated to play King Arthur in Pendragon.
Outlets like HollywoodLife quickly circulated the report, saying Pattinson’s “allegedly been tapped to play the lead” in the Camelot reboot and describing it as “a historical epic similar in tone to Kristen Stewart’s Snow White and the Huntsman!”
“We’re sure K-Stew… could give her boyfriend a few pointers about how to shoot a medieval epic!” shrieks the site, which apparently believes that any old tales turned into Disney cartoons at some point are practically the same thing.
Unfortunately for HollywoodLife (as well as Pattinson fans eager for post-Cosmopolis project news), there’s no truth to the Pendragon rumor.
A source close to Pattinson tells Gossip Cop the story is “inaccurate.”
