Time for a round of "Things that make you go 'hmmmmmm'".
We talked about Child 44 on the blog and that seemed to come and go. There's another rumor circulating that we can keep an eye on. I received info from this site in the past so *shrug* maybe they're on to something. Hopefully press asks David or Rob about the validity when they gear up for Cosmopolis promo. Shoot, hopefully press asks Rob anything about what he's doing next (or has been doing career-wise) and doesn't let him deflect. ;)
From The Tracking Board:
The ubiquitous “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson is doing everything he can to not be described as “‘Twilight’ star Pattinson”, and if it takes attaching himself to every upcoming David Cronenberg project to do so, by God he will follow through.Now don't go betting the farm over this. Cronenberg is reportedly working on another project (TV) and Unbound Captives (active development?) seems to be at a standstill. We'll keep a watch and you guys can talk about how you feel possibly seeing Rob in "darkly comedic drama". Isn't that a contradiction?
Pattinson has just become attached as a supporting actor in director Cronenberg’s upcoming darkly comedic drama, MAPS TO THE STARS. The pic, to which Viggo Mortensen is already attached, details the story of two child actors ruined by Hollywood’s depravity. Pattinson is said to play Jerome, a chauffeur by day and struggling actor by night. Scribe Bruce Wagner, who was originally set to direct until Cronenberg took the reigns in 2006, penned the script.
This news comes just before the May release of the anticipated Cronenberg project starring Pattinson, “Cosmopolis”, based on the Don DeLillo novel of the same name. Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a young billionaire who attempts to visit his father’s barber across Manhattan but is thwarted by a series of unlikely events.
“Maps to the Stars” will also be Mortensen’s fourth project with Cronenberg, having first worked together when he took the lead in “A History of Violence”.
Pattinson is currently in active development on “Unbound Captives”, a period drama that will also star Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.
Since I support anything Rob does, I'd be into it. He just needs to tell us so I know what I'm supporting next. :)
Thanks Sky for the tip!
