“Twilight” actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are surrounded by casting rumours. New reports claim Robert Pattinson could be replacing Harrison Ford in one iconic role.
Robert Pattinson is well known for his romantic parts such as Edward Cullen in "Twilight." But it seems his latest grungy roles will help him shed the image. As for his new movie projects, it was reported the actor could possibly take over Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones for the franchise's next installment, "Indiana Jones 5."

But according to Hollywood Life report, his future projects may involve replacing veteran actor Harrison Ford, but not as Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones. The Web site notes that the actor is "being tapped to potentially be a vital part of Star Wars history." Yes! That's right.
Robert Pattinson may soon be joining the cast of legendary sci-fi movie franchise.
"Everyone has been talking about the possibility that Rob will be the new Indiana Jones, but that is not going to happen," said the source.
Instead, talks about a "standalone Han Solo film" are in the air. The film is said to be about "younger Han Solo before everything that happened in Star Wars."
Topping the list for the part is actor Robert Pattinson as per the source.
"Star Wars" fans know Han Solo started his life as a human smuggler from planet Corellia. Later, he gained prominence in the Galactic Empire after he joined Rebel Alliance with his co-pilot Chewbacca. Later he became involved with New Republic.
Fans would definitely love to see Han Solo's life before "Star Wars" event. Meanwhile, Robert Pattinson's ex girlfriend Kristen Stewart is rumoured to be the next Belle in Disney's highly anticipated recreated film adaptation "Beauty and the Beast." It was recently reported that Bill Condin is set to remake the "live-action version" of the movie. According to Hollywood Life, Kristen Stewart has "super-strong shot at being tapped for the lead role" of Belle.
There is no official confirmation yet. Nonetheless, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart fans are excited about their potential new roles. Let us know if you would like to see Robert Pattinson as "Star Wars'" Han Solo? Do you think Kristen Stewart is suitable to play Belle in "Beauty and the Beast?"
