April 14 (UPI) -- Twilight star Robert Pattinson says a reboot could be "quite fun."

The 30-year-old English actor said in an interview with Yahoo! Movies that he'd be open to reprising Edward Cullen in a new Twilight film if the movie was "radical" and "subverted" expectations.

"I mean, I'm always kind of curious," Pattinson admitted. "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 way of doing it, which would be quite fun," he said. "It's always difficult when there's no source material. But, yeah, I'm always curious."

Pattinson played Edward in Twilight (2008) and its four sequels, which earned over $3.3 billion at the box office. He reflected positively on his time with the series in an interview with NME in 2015.

"[It was] something that ended up being quite helpful," the star said. "Most people, throughout their 20s, really struggle with knowing what they want to do."

"I was living a massively accelerated life, compacting a billion different experiences, having to comprehend so many different things... there was definitely a bad side, but it was fun. It was an adrenaline rush," he shared.

The Twilight films, which co-starred Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan, were based on the Stephanie Meyer book series of the same name. Pattinson has since starred in The Rover, Maps to the Stars and The Lost City of Z, which opens Friday.
