What happens when you take the biggest rock band in history and the biggest name in movies today?
You get a juicy rumor like the one in Star claiming Robert Pattinson is about to become a Beatle.
“Imagine Robert Pattinson as John Lennon,” the item begins, “It’s easy if you try.”
Easy how? Well, according to the tabloid, Pattinson “is in talks with director Robert Zemeckis to play the late great Beatle in Disney’s 3-D remake of the classic cartoon Yellow Submarine.”
So will Pattinson – whose fondness for music is well known – really make a film bridging the biggest youth culture phenomenon of the moment (Twilight) with what might have been the biggest phenom of all time?
It’s way too early to say. Gossip Cop is still investigating, but no one we’ve contacted, even at Zemeckis’ company, could confirm Pattinson’s potential involvement.
We’ll definitely be keeping our ears to the ground on this one to see if this “Submarine” sinks or not.
