There is some interesting news for die-hard fans of Twilight. Actor Robert Pattinson, who played vampire Edward Cullen alongside Kristen Stewart in the franchise, is not averse to the idea of reprising his character in a potential Twilight reboot.

In an interview with Yahoo, the actor was asked if he would be interested in reprising his vampire character for a Twilight reboot. The 30-year-old actor quipped, "Really, they're expanding it? So I'll get my own spin-off?"

Later, he said he was not averse to the idea of a potential Twilight spinoff movie around his vampire character.

Sharing that he is "curious" about the potential reboot of the hit franchise, the Rover actor continued, "I mean, I'm always kind of curious. Anything where there's a mass audience — or seemingly an audience for it — I always like the idea of subverting people's expectations. So there could be some radical way of doing it, which could be quite fun. It's always difficult when there's no source material. But, yeah, I'm always curious."

Pattinson who currently stars alongside Charlie Hunnam in The Lost City Of Z, also spoke about his relationship with the Twilight fan base. He told the outlet, "It's definitely calmed down in terms of my everyday life, but mainly because I spend more time in London, which is totally different. And I'm doing more parts that just sort of interest me, while in a lot of ways taking a little bit of a step back just to learn and get better. I guess I've never really acknowledged what the fan base is, or even if I have one."

Pattinson now portrays Henry Costin in a film directed by James Grey, which is based on British explorer Col. Percival Fawcett, who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s. The movie is set for release on 14 April in US.
