Excerpt: "Given that he feels so strongly about the mythology of fan culture, it's ironic that he has cast Pattinson in the film, as the actor has built up an ardent following in the years since the Twilight films, with a large number of fan sites dedicated to his work ... Corbet says he was interesting in using certain expectations to his advantage. "It’s really bizarre," says Corbet "There’s a couple of things. First of all, I’m not that connected to the notion of Rob as a celebrity, because I’ve known him for a long time and I didn’t discover him that way. The other thing is that I thought it would be really, really interesting to have this sort of Janet Leigh in Psycho effect, where you have someone who is a public figure and people have their eye on him, he’s interesting, he’s charismatic, he’s compelling, he’s handsome. And I thought, that it would really give weight to the first 20 minutes of the film. So I hired him for all of those reasons. I hired him because the role was written for a young man that was a bit younger than the female character, handsome and English, so I thought of him. "Anyone who has spent any time with the guy will know that he’s super hard-working and he never complains...."
NEW 'The Childhood Of A Leader' Still Featuring Robert Pattinson In Vanity Fair US
This gorgeous new still from The Childhood of A Leader with Rob and Liam Cunningham is featured in the August 2016 issue of Vanity Fair US along with an article with quotes from Rob, Director Brady Corbet & Rob's co-star Liam Cunningham.
High Life, the first English-language film from Palm D'Or winner Claire Denis, has received 1.5 m PLN from the Polish Film Institute. The film will be a coproduction between France, Germany, UK and Poland. Filming is expected to begin in fall. High Life is a sci-fi drama set in the outer space, where the main characters live in complete isolation. The all-star cast includes Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette, Mia Goth and Lars Eidinger. The screenplay was written by Claire Denis with Jean-Paul Fargeau, Geoffe Cox in co-operation with Zadie Smith and Nick Laird. Stuart Staples and the Tindersticks will compose the music. The DoP is Agnes Godard. The film is a coproduction between France (Alcatraz Films), Germany (Pandora Film), UK (Apocalypse Films) and Poland (Madants).
Starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Damian Lewis, and Robert Pattinson, the film tells the story of Gertrude Bell, the British explorer, traveler, archaeologist, and political officer who played a key role in Middle East politics in the 1920s, during the last days of the Ottoman Empire. It's potentially powerful stuff, but as our review notes, "the film does a disservice to the real Bell" by telling her tale in "a movie bracketed by romance."
The oddest thing about Robert Pattinson’s new film is, well, it’s all odd. From a tilt of the camera that barely shows the actors, to a story about fascism that you need to work really hard at even to know it’s about fascism, it is an understatement to say that The Childhood of a Leader is so far removed from its star’s huge vampire breakthrough, Twilight, that it will share absolutely none of the same fans.
From The Film Stage: "Various sources have told us the Zellners are now directing Robert Pattinson in Damsel, a “Western Era comedy about a man trying to marry the woman of his dreams.” Production is expected to continue through early September ahead of a likely 2017 premiere."
"It was important for Brady to choose someone for the role whose presence shines thru scenes even where he is absent. What Rob did was smart, subtle, and substantial. He is a fantastic actor and I admire most of Rob’s film choices. He is definitely someone to keep an eye out for and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him one day on the other side of the camera. He is sensitive, passionate and has great taste so I’m looking forward to seeing what he could create..."
