This is interesting. According to Variety:
'Equus' closure prompts rumors Casting news of Robert Pattinson proved false
"Knowing when to leave may be the smartest thing that anyone can learn" -- so wrote lyricist Hal David in the Burt Bacharach tuner "Promises, Promises." It's a lesson producers certainly have to learn. What's the point in recouping if you then throw your profit away by running a show into the ground?
That's definitely not what David Pugh(Gozde: my "extensive" google research shows he is the producer of Equus:) did with "Equus" in London. Before Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths finished their contracts, the decision was made not to recast with less-newsworthy actors. The same has happened with the Gotham transfer, which finished its scheduled run last week.
More than one option
That didn't stop the Internet rumors that new screen heartthrob Robert Pattinson ("Twilight") would follow Radcliffe in the role.
It wasn't the most preposterous of ideas -- Pattinson appeared alongside Radcliffe in two of the "Harry Potter" movies. But Pugh told Variety that won't happen. He has, however, confirmed that he and Pattinson will be working together on a theater project in 2010. More than that he won't say.
