    gutted about Rob no longer being attached to this film, wondering if depending on when he was supposed to film his scenes, if it somehow clashed with LCOZ filming. That aside absolutely love kit harington, he was great as Jon Snow in GOT so still looking forward to seeing this film.

  • Emma Bauer

    This was a role Rob would have rocked. It’s a damn shame.

  • Tigerlilly

    I’m a bit surprised, but I like Kit so I’m ok with this replacement :)

  • http://letstalkaboutkristen.blogspot.com/ Lara

    What a loser Rob is.

  • HA

    He is only good for limousine F***k. He can’t act.

  • Mimignyc

    Hahaha. See, producers are now realizing that Rob has ZERO talent. Kit is a better replacement withiut a doubt.

  • guest

    Kit who? Never heard of him. Rob schedule was conflicting wih Brimstone. He rather do City of Oz. Do we have Rob haters on here. Get a life for once.

  • guest

    That’s not what the critics had to say about The Rover. If you aren’t a fan, why are you talking about him..

  • guest

    Do you think he is the only actor that ever dropped out of a film. How old are you, like 12?

  • guest

    Won’t be seeing this film for the only reason I wanted to see it was Rob. Not a fan of Dakota and what’s his name, can’t remember

  • http://letstalkaboutkristen.blogspot.com/ Lara

    LOL. Keep telling yourself that he dropped out…

  • Mimignyc

    Lol. Rob fans can’t accept that. It was obious he was dropped because they did not say the reason why he was replaced.

  • Mimignyc

    For those saying he chose the Lost City over Brimstone are kidding themselves. No actor will choose a lead role over a supporting one.

  • http://letstalkaboutkristen.blogspot.com/ Lara

    They went out of their way to say that Mia was pregnant and couldnt film, and to mention that Kit was chosen because of his enthusiasm. Basically a big screw you to Rob, and a giant giveaway that they dropped his ass and not the other way around

  • lovekristen

    Lol its lost city of z ..what kind of a fan r u ?

  • mgoss

    You must live under a rock. lol Ever heard of a little … most watched show Game of Thrones?

  • Josh Shacklock

    Wow, im scared, just stumbled onto clickbait and realised hordes of fanboys over actors still exist, weird….

  • karina

    Simply, I´m not longer interested in that movie. I like Dakota but that kid Kit… horror…

  • karina

    HA
    If you know, you saw the film. And who are you ??? Ohhh, yes… You´re nobody

  • karina

    Simply, I don´t care anything about that movie. I like Dakota, but that kid Harington, horror…

  • karina

    Lara
    It must be very sad to be thinking about Rob. He must have something good. You better go to support Miss K and her new girlfriend.

  • karina

    Lara
    Yes, You are a Miss K fan… Simply by the way you express yourself …tacky.

  • http://letstalkaboutkristen.blogspot.com/ Lara

    He doesn’t really have anything good going on actually… or did you not read the article^^?

  • http://letstalkaboutkristen.blogspot.com/ Lara

    No one cares.

  • Guest

    Your talking about Pattinsen of course.NO he cant act. Also his very Jealous girlfriend wont let him any where near any one who was in Twilight,and of course Fanning was a Vampire in that.

  • Guest

    The reason why is his VERY Jealous girlfriend. She wont let him near any one from Twilight,and Fanning was a Vampire in that movie.And he is being a good little boy and doing what his Mummy tells him.He is a weak man and actor and would spoil yet another movie.

  • Guest

    Every one who hate’s Pattinson is not a K.fan,his new girlfriend has had her hand in that hatred.She also hates Dakota,as she was in Twilight.And any one in that movie is Taboo.That’s what he gets for following the wrong head.

  • Guest

    Silly person,it will be a much better movie without Rob.You must be friends with his Jealous Girlfriend,she is not a fan of Dakota either.

  • renata

    wat

  • Robfan

    Rob has a bigger role in Lost City of Z, Brimstone a smaller role so you don’t know what you are talking about.

  • Robfan

    Why do you care why does being a Kristen fan mean that you have to run Rob down and anyone he is involved with.

  • Robfan

    You are ridiculous!

  • Guest

    If you say so!. But if you look back on some of the earlier comments from the Queen of Ugly,she stated she would not have her boyfriend any where near any one from Twilight,and Fanning was a Vampire in Twilight,also Fanning and Pattinson,hung out for a while after the K.S. split. His ring in the nose girlfriend, has made him drop any one she dose not like, of his old group,and only hang out with her friends,who are for the best part Gay.

  • d baum

    There was no conflict or Brimstone would have disclosed that important info. What? Rob is down working on 1 movie this year? Whoa!
    He made a few last year, I think, they will be out later this fall.
    “Life” sounds like the only one worth seeing, since QofD kinda fizzled. And now, all of these rumors.Tsk Tsk Tsk.

  • d baum

    Kit is/was amazing…glad he will be playing this role.

  • d baum

    Kinda looks that way. lol
    (It’s the hair)

  • d baum

    Miss K, as you put it, has lots of girlfriends, who support her.
    Why bring her into this discussion???
    She has nothing to do with Rob’s fumbling career.

  • d baum

    What is wrong in being her fan? I like Anna Kendrick, and tons of actors…. K does not need to be in this discussion!

  • d baum

    LOL

  • d baum

    Kit Harrington….omg…is gorgeous! Have you been watching GofT?

  • d baum

    Your gonna be missing a lot of movies, huh?
    Hey, here’s one for ya, “American Ultra”…you’ll love it! lol

  • d baum

    It happens…it has happened to Rob and others….but a reason is usually given!
    That’s all.

  • d baum

    He has an image to uphold…. or he used to.

  • d baum

    Can anyone picture a 10 year reunion for Twilight?? A wonderful party, a fun get together!( For some)

  • d baum

    That sure make sense. Time Dakota and Rob would be together…talking.
    Red carpet events….meet n greets!
    That has to be it!!!!
    OMG I didn’t have a clue Fka would not allow it!
    That’s it for me then…he sure has lost a pair!

  • Guest

    They had a Twilight reunion party. Guess who was the only actor who did not show up. I will give you a clue R-Putz. Mummy most likely wouldn’t let him out to play with out her.

  • disqus_EA7QDIHI8T

    Just heard the same from another….FKA has forbid Rob to have any contact, ie working with any actor from the Twilight Saga.
    Guess she must be so jealous of Rob’s fans who loved him, based on tTwilight, & loved all the Twilight actors.
    How terrible to go thru life with restrictions especially from someone who claims to love you.
    You have lost one fan, shrug, so that FkA can be happy, she just might be ruining your career.
