David Cronenberg Wants To Reunite Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson In A New Film

The Crimes of the Future director wants to reunite the Twilight stars on a future project.


Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are at the top of their respective acting games, yet we as a society love nothing more than to remember their Hollywood origin story: the Twilight saga.


Turns out David Cronenberg — the director of Crimes of the Future, in which Stewart stars as a rogue agent working for the National Organ Register — has an inner Twi-hard after all.

Ahead of the film’s premiere at Cannes, Cronenberg had coffee with celebrated film critic Jordan Ruimmy and revealed his hopes of reuniting Stewart and Pattinson on screen.

“It was Robert who actually introduced me to Kristen,” David told Jordan. “They have developed beautifully, separately, as actors. Making arthouse movies and successfully carrying that off. Kristen and I had a great time and Rob and I had a great time. For me, yeah, I can definitely think of a movie, or idea, that would be great to have them both together.”

Cronenberg previously worked with Pattinson on the 2012 thriller Cosmopolis and 2014 satire Maps to the Stars.

But Cronenberg stayed mum for the most part. “I don’t want to get into it because it wouldn’t be my next movie,” he noted.

But understanding the staunch and ravenous nature of the Twilight fandom, the director already has some apprehensions about reuniting the two actors for a film.


“It might be problematic since fans might expect a certain kind of relationship and that would get in the way of creating new characters for them. So, I have a strange feeling that might be problematic, so it’s only theoretical for now.”
