Robert Pattinson has no plans to brandish a bullwhip or blaster anytime soon.

The Twilight star addressed rumors that he would take on Harrison Ford’s iconic roles of Indiana Jones and/or Han Solo while walking the red carpet for the U.S. premiere of his latest film, The Rover, on Thursday.

“I don’t know why. Why is that coming out?” he said of speculation he might star in an Indiana Jones update, according to People. “I honestly don’t understand what it’s all about. Man, I wish!”

Equally head-scratching for the 28-year-old actor are reports that he would appear as the pilot of the Millennium Falcon in an upcoming Star Wars film. (In other Han news, Ford is currently sidelined from J.J. Abrams’ new project about that galaxy far, far away.)

“I didn’t even know there was a Han Solo spinoff coming out,” Pattinson told reporters. “Sounds like a cool spinoff. I’ll watch it.”
