Once a report type is saved with a standard or custom primary object, the primary object cannot be changed for that report type.

You can choose from all objectseven those you dont have permission to view. This lets you build report types for a variety of users. Once you save a report type, you cant change the primary object. If the primary object on a report type is a custom object, and the custom object is deleted, then the report type and any reports created from it are automatically deleted. If you remove an object from a report type, all references to that object and its associated objects are automatically removed from reports and dashboards based on that type. https://help.salesforce.com/apex/htviewhelpdoc?id=reports_defining_report_types.htm&language=en_us
