Will Robert Pattinson play the lead in Green Day's 'American Idiot' film?
Rumors are circulating on the internet that Robert Pattinson could be up for the lead role in the film-adaptation of the Green Day album/Broadway musical "American Idiot."
However, says MTV.com, the "news" is based on speculation from Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong more than two years ago.
Way back in April 2009, Armstrong told Spinner.com who he'd like to play Christian, the male lead.
"I'm gonna say maybe that kid in 'Twilight,' [Pattinson]. He's a good actor. There's still more to come with that kid."
VH1's "Pop Up Video" brought the rumor back into the spotlight when it ran a version of GD's "21 Guns" with a series of bubbles that read, "Hollywood is trying to turn it into a movie ... Billie Joe has said that his first choice to play the main character: Robert Pattinson."
The film, which is being produced by Tom Hanks' Playtone in collaboration with Green Day, is currently in pre-production. No casting for the movie has been announced.
The movie is expected to hit theaters in 2013.
