image for Robert Pattinson To Star In Rebel Without A Cause Remake?

Rumor is that Robert Pattinson is afraid he's going to be typecast as a vampire and has taken on the role that help make James Dean a star in the 1950s.

Warner Brothers had bought the rights to the story some time ago but they knew that it would take awhile for "James Dean" not to come back into people's minds should they try a remake. But now, it seems possible.

"This is a young people's film, their story, and I think it's time for a whole new generation to see this film", stated Arnold Hyatt of WB.

Although Hyatt would neither confirm not deny that the role has been offered to Pattinson, the role does seem perfect for him.

When asked, Pattinson stated that he hadn't been offered anything yet.

"I'd have to do some thinking and talking before I could agree to THAT role. It's famous and whoever does it -that's saying they do make it -will be unfavorably compared to James Dean who's a legend. It's hard to compete with a legend."

"Of course, who could turn down a try-out for it?"

What we are wondering, is who would be cast in the role played by Natale Wood?

This is Dan Hilliard, Ass Reporter for UP2
