A couple of blurbs from Rob that have come out from Cosmopolis promo.
From Film News (UK):
Robert Pattinson is shocked by how censored show business remains. The actor stars in director David Cronenberg’s upcoming move Cosmopolis. In this film Robert’s character is involved in a threesome and shoots himself in the hand with a gun. Robert believes that the movie ratings system is inherently flawed in the age of the internet.From Entertainment Weekly:
“You’re immediately at the highest rating with things to do with sex. But you can have violence. It’s like, ‘What?!’ It’s completely crazy,” he told British newspaper The Sun. “I don’t think there’s anything in Cosmopolis that’s particularly... there’s nothing bad. I don’t think there’s anything that would have shocked me when I was 13. Especially when every single kid nowadays probably watches hardcore pornography on the internet. It’s no worse – in fact, it’s a lot better.”
Robert isn’t nervous about how audiences will receive the potentially incendiary scenes in Cosmopolis.
“I’m not worried about the violence or the sex or anything like that,” he said. “Transformers is more violent than Cosmopolis.”
It appears that Pattinson and Cronenberg are hoping to pair up once more following their upcoming Cosmopolis. Pattinson confirmed to EW that he’s attached to the director’s long-gestating Maps to the Stars — although he’s not sure when they would begin production. “I don’t know if I’m doing it next,” he says. Cronenberg has stated that he hopes to cast frequent collaborator Viggo Mortensen as well.
The film would be based on a script by novelist and screenwriter Bruce Wagner, who has also written an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel, As She Climbed Across the Table, for Cronenberg. “It’s about child stars,” says Pattinson of Wagner’s script. “It’s very funny. It’s very, very dark.”
Cosmopolis, which is based on a 2003 Don DeLillo novel, debuted two weeks ago at the Cannes Film Festival.Via: RobPattzNews
