Robert Pattinson: "A-5....You Sunk My Battleship!!"

There are a ton of film titles being tossed around as Rob's next project. Amanda Bell over at the Examiner discusses the latest talks that when Rob was meeting with Peter Berg he was actually discussing a film version of the board game "Battleship" rather than Dune.

One speculator of the Perez Hilton-inspired conversations about The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Robert Pattinson and his meet-up with Peter Berg has raised an interesting observation.

Says Peter Sciretta at Slash Film,

Peter Berg is in talks to direct a big screen adaptation of Hasbro’s board game Battleship for Universal Pictures. Brother screenwriting team Jon and Eric Hoeber have signed on to write the script, which is said to be “an epic naval action adventure” loosely inspired by the game. Universal seems to have a multi-picture development deal with Hasbro/Milton Bradley.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson, while on break from shooting New Moon, was spotted last week leaving Berg’s Los Angeles home. At the time, many speculated that Pattinson might be in talks to join Berg’s planned remake of Dune, but Berg has so many projects in the development pipeline that it would be impossible to narrow it down to one of them. And it would be too speculative for me to say that Battleship is probably the film.

Oh, how the flood of childhood memories are hitting me!
