“Now he’s got some weeks to get everything in line before going back to promoting ‘Breaking Dawn,’ ” the source said.
“Twilight” may appeal to teeny boppers, but the British lad isn’t necessarily trying to appeal to that crowd with his music. Another source told Us Weekly that Mr. Pattinson’s album will be “[l]ike stripped-down Ray LaMontagne meets Van Morrison.”
“The album Rob will make will be guitar-based and drums, very organic-sounding, nothing pop,” the source said.
Mr. Pattinson first hit the celebrity radar in 2005 when he portrayed heartthrob Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” but he is most easily recognized for playing the troubled but well-intentioned vampire Edward Cullen in “Twilight.”
‘Avatar’-themed areas to open in Disney parks
Enthralled with the commercial success of James Cameron and Jon Landau’s 3-D blockbuster “Avatar,” Disney plans to open specialized areas at its theme parks based on the film.
Disney will install the first Avatar Land at the Animal Kingdom park at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. A Disney spokesman told the Hollywood Reporter the site was chosen because the Animal Kingdom park emphasizes “living in harmony with nature” and “the ‘Avatar’ stories … share the same philosophy.”
Mr. Cameron and Mr. Landau have struck an exclusive deal to install “Avatar”-themed rides at Disney’s parks. Mr. Cameron told the Hollywood Reporter that “with Disney, we’ll be able to bring Pandora to life like never before.”
