Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are NOT “replacing” Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Twilight, despite baseless reports. Gossip Cop can debunk the unfounded claims.
“Ian Somerhalder & Nina Dobrev: Exes Replacing R-Patz & K-Stew In New ‘Twilight’ Movie?” asks the serial fabricators at HollywoodLife. It’s asserted in the accompanying story, “We might be getting a new ‘Twilight’ flick! But, when it comes out, we won’t be seeing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson reprising their roles. Instead, another set of exes who are well-versed in the world of vampires might be hitting the screen — Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder!”
Naturally, the webloid doesn’t have a single piece of hard evidence to back up its claims. Instead, it picks up an article from another dubious outlet, The Inquisitr, and alleges Dobrev “might be interested in taking K. Stew’s place if the actress doesn’t want it.” As for Somerhalder, HollywoodLife says, “When ‘The Vampire Diaries’ comes to an end soon, Ian will need a new job.”
“And Ian already has a connection to the films, with his wife, Nikki Reed, famously playing the role of Rosalie Hale in all the Twilight movies,” continues the site, which goes on to write, “Though none of the stars’ representatives have confirmed the news of a new Twilight movie, we’re very intrigued by the prospects!”
Well, no rep has confirmed it because it’s NOT happening. The webloid has been wrongly reporting about new Twilight films since September, and this is just the latest installment in that false narrative. As Gossip Cop has said all along, no such project is in the works. Not with Pattinson and Stewart, and not with Dobrev and Somerhalder, either. This is exactly why the site is known as HollywoodLies.
