"An individual approached us stating they had breaking news that Rob’s next project has been green-lighted and signed! The details I received from "The Insider" are listed below:
The film is a remake of the 2004 film "Dark Arc".
A major studio is behind the project.
I was given the names and personal cell phone numbers of the potential director and one of the producers.
Potential co-stars are Emma Watson and Casey Affleck as the three lead characters with Rob.
Rob and Emma Watson have signed but Casey Affleck is still in talks.
We have confirmed "The Insider"’s location and found it consistent with the other details that were provided.
"The Insider" provided me with phone contacts for major players involved. I researched the individuals who are allegedly involved with the project and their potential whereabouts. The phone numbers I received were personal cell phone numbers and were consistent with where these individuals could potentially be by their area code. I made two phone calls on Saturday, September 11, 2010 around 2:30pm ET/11:30am PT. I was sent to voicemail on both. Each voicemail greeting was a personal recording by the individuals who said who they were by their first names in their greeting.
I do have some more specifics but "The Insider" requested that I do not release it at this time. I was asked to wait and see if the involved players would return my calls yesterday. Sadly, they did not. The studio and the individuals behind the project may have "No Comment" or say this story is"100% False". Hard to say…. but the information presented to me was compelling!
I want to thank my "The Insider" for coming to us and trusting us with potentially damning information that could put their job at risk. Like us, they are excited to see Robert in this project. Many of us have been waiting to see what his potential next project might be and this just might be "The One".
*PLEASE NOTE* We are marking this as a rumor because we have not been able to confirm this information with the studio or players involved.
