"Really, they're expanding it?" the actor asked before joking, "So, I'll get my own spin-off?"
Not exactly, but Pattinson's interest has caused quite a stir.
"I'm always kind of curious," he said. "Anything where there's a mass audience — or seemingly an audience for it — I always like the idea of subverting people's expectations. There could be some radical ways of doing it, which could be quite fun. It's always difficult when there's no source material."
Although the actor has starred in several films since then, he's enjoyed more anonymity — quite the opposite from Twilight's mass popularity.
"It's definitely calmed down in terms of my everyday life," the actor said, "but mainly because I spend more time in London, which is totally different. And I'm doing more parts that just sort of interest me, while in a lot of ways taking a little bit of a step back just to learn and get better. I guess I've never really acknowledged what the fan base is, or even if I have one."
