Following Ridley Scott, who is booked to direct “Monopoly,” Peter Berg is said to be in talks to helm “Battleship,” an action movie based on the iconic grid-based wargame. Could this be the film Berg and Robert Pattinson were meeting last week to discuss?Read about all the speculation over at MTV.
Chances are - or maybe we’re just being hopeful - that Berg and Pattinson were instead chatting about “Dune.” Still, Pattinson’s legion of “Twilight”-loving fans would probably melt at the sight of him in a Navy uniform, serving aboard one of the game’s five ships. If “Battleship” movie is to deliver as an epic-scale action flick, the “Twilight” actor could probably be included at least as part of a larger ensemble. It would certainly get the typically action-averse teen girls to buy tickets, simply for the opportunity to hear Pattinson shout the board game’s famous tagline, “you sunk my battleship!”
