THR: 'Maps to the Stars' Director David Cronenberg on Indie Films and Portraying Hollywood (Q&A)

THR: 'Maps to the Stars' Director David Cronenberg on Indie Films and Portraying Hollywood (Q&A) | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Canadian director David Cronenberg is no stranger to Cannes, having received the Carrosse d’Or lifetime achievement award in 2006 and a special jury prize in 1996 in addition to having had five films in competition, including his latest, the Robert Pattinson starrer Maps to the Stars, screening May 19. It is his first feature set in Hollywood, though considering the breadth of Cronenberg’s imagination, it is not apt to be a Hollywood like any seen previously onscreen.

The 71-year-old director spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about his Canadian roots, his preference for an R rating and why it takes so long to make “difficult” films.

"I’ve never lost sight of why I’m making films," says Canada’s wizard of weird as he reflects on his career, and his long history with the Cannes festival.

ROBsessed: Tell us something we might not know about Rob and David.
McKenzie: They are two of the sweetest men in Hollywood.  Both are extremely humble in person and lack pretension.   I felt very comfortable around both of them.  David Cronenberg gave me a big hug the first time I ever saw him, and he said he was happy to finally meet me, which was so disarming, charming and fatherly.  I think that is when I fell in love, because I will give everything to a director that makes me feel as safe and protected as a child.  And Cronenberg is so patient.  He gives everyone on set all the time they need to do their best work, and speaks quietly to keep the atmosphere on set very calm and enjoyable.  David was also very patient with my fawning over him at the warp party, because I was so appreciative of his work style I just couldn't help gushing like a schoolgirl with with a crush, very embarrassing in retrospect. I didn't expect Rob to be so tall, and so charming.  

Everyone loved him on set.  He  can carry his own in any conversation and takes pains to make others feel at ease.  He is very down-to-earth and low-key, the kind of guy that just chills with his dog, or with a pint. What's his dogs name, Bear? I'm pretty sure I remember that from playing with him, although it's possible I heard the name somewhere, but anyone who calls a small dog "Bear" has a good sense of humour. I had two 95lb boxers named Zeus and Troy,  that I was missing, so it was fun to play with that friendly little Bear.  Anyway, I got the impression that he preferred a dark pub, to cruising on a yacht, or anything fancy.  He actually called me "fancy" because yes, if there's an occasion, I may prefer boating to beers on a hot summer day, but otherwise, I like to stay home and immerse myself in my own world.

Real Style Network: Cosmopolis producer Martin Katz Talks About Robert Pattinson, Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Excerpt from interview:

 

RSN: Fast forward 20 years and now you are making huge movies. After Spider there were a few and then A Dangerous Method and Cosmopolis with Robert Pattinson.

MK:  I think it was great for us and the movie that Rob was interested in making that type of move at this time. I think he is great in the movie and he will bring a new type of audience to David’s world. His relationship with Kristen is private, but the intense focus on it is bizarre. It’s a funny world. It brought us a lot of publicity for our US launch. We could not in a million years have bought that much publicity. I’m sorry it came at the expense of his personal life, but he’s a celebrity.

 

RSN:What’s next for the ever evolving Martin Katz?

MK: I have two things that I am excited about. I am working on my fourth collaboration with David Cronenberg called Maps To The Stars. It is an absurdist comedy about the entertainment business. We hope to be able to work with many of the people we have worked with before including Rob Pattinson.

David Cronenberg on Robert Pattinson

David Cronenberg on Robert Pattinson | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

David Cronenberg:

"I watched Little Ashes, in which Rob plays a young Salvador Dali; I watched Remember Me; I watched the first Twilight movie. And I watched — interestingly enough, I suppose, because people wouldn’t expect it — but you watch interviews with the guy on YouTube, you know. I want to get an idea of his sense of humor, his sense of himself, the way he handles himself, his intelligence — all of those things you can’t really tell from watching an actor play a role in a movie. I suppose in the old days you meet the guy and hang out, and go to a bar or whatever — [laughs] — but these days nobody has time for that, or the money, and so you do it some other way. And once I’d done all that stuff, I thought, This is the guy I want. I thought, He’d be terrific and I actually think he’s a very underrated actor — and it would be my pleasure to prove that by casting him." (Source: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/cosmopolis/news/1925743/interview_david_cronenberg_on_cosmopolis/)

 

"He's terrific. He deserves the affection that the fans have for him. He's incredibly sweet, he's very funny, he's very bright and he's also very knowledgeable about cinema. Not just movies but the history of cinema. He knows a lot about it. He's just a sweetheart. And he's totally professional. He's always right there. We had a lot of fun shooting [the movie] because, as I say, he has a great sense of humor. We just played a lot. I think that's a really great tone that's set for everybody on the set. The lead actor has a really big influence on the tone of the shoot. If you've got a guy who's very difficult and neurotic or whatever, they can't help but affect everybody's day. But Rob is not like that. He's just a ray of sunshine. In fact, he's in absolutely every scene of the movie, so obviously his temperament would have a huge influence on how the shoot went ... and it was a dream. It was a beautiful shoot."

FIRSTPOST Exclusive: David Cronenberg talks about Cosmopolis and Robert Pattinson | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

David Cronenberg about the unexpected side of Robert Pattinson:

" The thing I liked about Rob Pattinson as an actor is that he’s a serious actor. And you could lose sight of that, because he’s had this big popular success with the Twilightmovies, but he is not afraid to play a character who is difficult to like, you know, because some actors are afraid to do that, because they feel it is too personal, that they themselves will not be liked by their audience, and so on. But a real actor is not afraid to play an unsympathetic character, and Rob is a real actor.

Also, I think to be an actor, you need intelligence, first of all. For example, Rob immediately realised that the script was quite funny, and most people don’t get that. Then you want sensitivity to the subtleties of the movie, in terms of what is going on in the movie, the dialogue and so on. And Rob, personally, is very knowledgeable about cinema.

(chuckles) I don’t think his Twilight fans realise this about him, but he’s really an aficionado about art cinema. I mean, on the set I’d find him talking to Juliette Binoche about obscure French cinema, (chuckles) so you know, he brings a real depth of understanding of the history and art of cinema and all of those things mean that you have a lot of power and a lot of responsiveness from your actor as a director. It’s like driving the Ferrari instead of driving, you know, a Volkwagen Beetle. And you get that with Rob. I must also add, he’s very down to earth and very easy to work with. He’s not diva at all, you know. He’s really a sweetheart."

SNATCH: Robert Pattinson - Chronicle Of A Changing Icon

SNATCH: Robert Pattinson - Chronicle Of A Changing Icon | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Translation:

For a long time, Robert Pattinson had only been a Twilight character: a kitsch romance actor, sex-symbol of all the teenagers of the world, and press people favorite which were delighted of his complicated love affairs with Kristen Stewart. And then, there has been his meeting with David Cronenberg in 2012 in Cosmopolis, which marks the début of a new orientation more independent in his career and changed his image. From the Barnes suburb, where he was born, to his new Hollywood life, portrait of a pure bold actor, victim of a very long misunderstanding. ...

Chris Weitz sums up perfectly what Robert Pattinson’s last few years looked like: an enormous madness. From 2008 and 2012, the time the Twilight franchise lasted, the five movies adapted from Stephanie Meyer’s books earned three billions dollars in total. Robert Pattinson became, for his part, one of the biggest pop icon from this century beginning. Thanks to his romantic vampire role, he had been imposed as the sex symbol of an entire generation of teenagers, and provoked a hysterical wave comparable to the one known by Leonardo DiCaprio during Titanic, for better and for worse. The better: he became a multimillionaire at only 21, and has known how to use his fame to concentrate on more prestigious, doing, from Cosmopolis by David Cronenberg in 2012, an independent turn which made him one of the most passionate actor from his time. The worst: he sacrificed a good part of his youth, and has to live now under constant protection because of the phenomenon Twilight. “He did not predict this immoderation”, sums up his friend, the actor and director Brady Corbet....

"He thought the first Twilight would have been art movies about vampires. He did not have any idea what was waiting for him” David Cronenberg.

The Playlist: David Cronenberg Talks Working With Robert Pattinson, 'Map To The Stars' & More | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

David Cronenberg about Robert Pattinson:

"I really think he's a terrific actor. He's extremely inventive. He surprised me every day on 'Cosmopolis' with the nuances and things that he did which were unexpected. Of course I was very familiar with the dialogue and yet he would surprise me," Cronenberg enthused. "And I thought, this is a guy who I would like to work with some more, which is how I felt with Viggo Mortensen. When you find an actor who surprises you everyday, you figure, he could do it some more with a completely different role in a completely different movie."

 

David Cronenberg about "Map To The Stars", his first film shot in the United States:
[While it's still coming together, should it all work out, Cronenberg will get to work in May on "Map To The Stars," a new film that will reunite him with Pattinson and Mortensen, and also feature Rachel Weisz. And believe it or not, for the first time in the four-decade-plus-long career of the director, he will be shooting in the United States.]

"It's kind of a satire on Hollywood. It's very typical of Bruce Wagner's writing. And it's sort of a condensed essence of Bruce. And while it's satirical, it's also very powerful, emotionally, and insightful and funny," he explained about the movie. "And it would be the first time I've ever shot a foot of film in the United States. It's strange, just because of the way the co-production deals work, that even though I've had movies that are set in the U.S. like 'Cosmopolis' or 'The Dead Zone,' I've never shot in the United States. This would be the first time. And I'm really excited about it."

The Daily Details: David Cronenberg on Cosmopolis, Star Wars, and Exposing Twilight Fans to Don DeLillo

The Daily Details: David Cronenberg on Cosmopolis, Star Wars, and Exposing Twilight Fans to Don DeLillo | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

On the cusp of the Blu-ray and DVD release of his film, Cosmopolis, the legendary director discusses with DETAILS reasons to cast Rob in Cosmopolis, his next project Maps to the Stars, etc.

DETAILS: Did having someone as marketable as Robert Pattinson in the lead help get Cosmopolis made?

DAVID CRONENBERG: It's not just Rob, but this was a Canadian-French co-production so actors like Juliette Binoche and Mathieu Amalric really do contribute to the strength that you have when you're trying to find money. What matters is, do you have a good actor working with you?

DETAILS: What made you want to cast Rob? This part is so far removed from what his enormous Twilight fan base would normally see him in.

DAVID CRONENBERG: Surprisingly enough they were very interested in it and developed websites for Cosmopolis just because of Rob. And a lot of the girls were talking about reading "Cosmopolis." I think the only thing they had read, probably, was "Twilight" and "Harry Potter," and suddenly they're reading Don DeLillo.

DETAILS: There's a very slick, high-tech fashion to the film. What was your inspiration for the look of Rob's character?

DAVID CRONENBERG: It all comes from what the characters are supposed to be in the movie. They're both very wealthy. They're both very comfortable with their wealth. It's interesting because some people have asked, "Is Rob's fame a parallel to Packer?" And I say, "No, quite the contrary. Eric Packer is not famous at all. He doesn't want his name in the paper." He dresses well, but sort of conventionally. In fact, Rob said that he wanted the guy to be dressed in almost a non-descript way. It's expensive clothes, but it's not flashy.

DETAILS: Maps to the Stars is supposed to start shooting in May. Have you been able to sign Robert Pattinson, Viggo Mortensen, and Rachel Weisz?

DAVID CRONENBERG: I don't think Viggo will be able to do it, but with the other two, so far, so good. Have they signed? No. But they have a verbal commitment if everything works out and if other things don't come along. It's still very possible for the three of them, but it's far from certain. That's life in the indie film world.

ETonline| David Cronenberg Tells About Robert Pattinson's Performance: "Twilight is irrelevant."

ETonline| David Cronenberg Tells About  Robert Pattinson's Performance: "Twilight is irrelevant." | Robert Pattinson Daily News, Photo, Video & Fan Art | Scoop.it

Director of "Cosmopolis" David Cronenberg tells ETonline that he was actually quite impressed with what Rob brought to the table, and that after the baggage of casting -- once you get to that point when you're on set and cameras are rolling -- "Twilight is irrelevant."

"He surprised me every day with good stuff," says Cronenberg. "I don't do rehearsals, and I try not to shape the actor's performance at first. I want to see what his intuition is going to deliver. And then if there's a problem then I start to shape it, nudge it, manipulate it a little bit. I did very little of that with Rob. He absolutely would say to you right now, 'I had no idea what I was doing at any time,' and he would mean it. I think he really didn't realize how good he was. … He was surprising himself, but he was surprising me by his accuracy. It was just dead on. I mean, by the end of it we were doing one take. Honestly the whole last scene, the whole last shot in the movie with him and Paul [Giamatti] -- one take. And it's a long take as well. And it's very emotional, and very subtle. One take for both of them, it was so good. … In fact, we finished the shoot five days early, and a lot of that was due to Rob."

Of course, when Cronenberg first cast Rob, he had to overcome what he calls Twilight "baggage," explaining, "You often have to consider what we call baggage for an actor, and you have to decide whether it's a problem or not. I hate the idea of it because I know I'm going to be on the set with the guy at three in the morning shooting in the streets of Toronto, and none of that stuff is relevant. We're just two people trying to make the movie work. So his past performances, or his fame, or lack of it, or whatever the factor is, is at that point irrelevant. What's relevant only is what we can do creatively with each other. On the other hand, when you're financing a movie you have to have lead actors who have some weight and some substance and will attract investors so that you can get your movie financed, so it's a weird situation. Aside from the fact that yes, he was an exciting and interesting, surprising choice in terms of how investors viewed it -- and it worked because we got the financing for the movie -- after that Twilight is irrelevant, you know?"

What mattered most to Cronenberg was that his lead could carry the scene and had the proper charisma: "It starts very simply with is he the right age, does he have the right look, does he have the right presence onscreen?" he says. "He is in absolutely every scene in the movie, and that's really quite rare. Even in a movie with Tom Cruise, you don't see Tom in every scene. But in this case you do, and so he has to have some charisma. You have to want to watch him for that long and that intensely, because I knew I was going to be crawling all over his face with the camera."
