The Rover distributor, A24, has picked up another highly anticipated Rob film! The company has swooped up Rob's next big role, Good Time!
A24 has acquired North American rights to “Good Time,” a caper film with Robert Pattinson, Variety has learned.
The film follows a bank robber’s race to evade the police dragnet that threatens to send him behind bars. Josh and Benny Safdie directed the movie from a screenplay by Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstein. “Good Time” also stars Jennifer Jason-Leigh and Barkhad Abdi.
The Safdie brothers are well known in the indie film community for their work on “Go Get Some Rosemary” and “Heaven Knows What.” Pattinson shot to fame as the brooding vampire in the “Twilight” films. Since accelerating the heart rates of teen girls the world over, he’s used his heartthrob status to get backing for edgier fare, working with David Cronenberg on “Map to the Stars” and “Cosmopolis,” and appearing in the upcoming James Gray drama “Lost City of Z.”Since The Rover, A24 has continued to gather notable works and made a mark last year during awards season with the film, Room (starring Oscar winner, Brie Larson). They also have some buzzy projects for this award season as well. Click HERE to keep reading the Variety exclusive.
Little is known or seen about the film (the pic in this post is ALL we got during filming and it's not even filming. Click HERE to revisit) so it will be exciting to see how everything unfolds. It's great to see Jennifer Jason-Leigh as a cast member. She's a classic actor and recently gained attention again with her role in Tarantino's The Hateful Eight scoring a supporting actor Oscar nomination. Rob's other co-star, Barked Abdi, has also scored an Oscar nom with his role in Captain Phillips. So this is an exciting bunch! Can't wait to see the film :)))))
