Claire Denis & Robert Pattinson Join Forces On A New Project : Denis Johnson’s ‘The Stars at Noon’

Claire Denis & Robert Pattinson Join Forces On A New Project : Denis Johnson’s ‘The Stars at Noon’

From The Film Stage:
This week marks the arrival of what will hopefully be Claire Denis’ biggest film in the U.S. to date, courtesy of the distributing powers of A24. High Life is a wondrous, daring, frightening sci-fi odyssey and marks a bold expansion of scope for the director. Considering it took years to get off the ground, one might have thought we’d wait awhile to hear of her next project, but she’s now revealed the first details of a potential new film. 

Speaking at the Brattle Theatre in a conversation co-presented by Independent Film Festival Boston, she announced that she’s developing an adaptation of The Stars at Noon, the 1986 novel from the late, brilliant writer Denis Johnson. If this pairing wasn’t more of a match made in heaven, she’s also announced that her High Life star Robert Pattinson is set to lead the film. [via Jake Mulligan]

NEW ROLE: Robert Pattinson Has Joined The Cast Of Christopher Nolan's New Movie

NEW ROLE: Robert Pattinson Has Joined The Cast Of Christopher Nolan's New Movie

Collider exclusively reported that Rob has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan's new (as yet unnamed) blockbuster.

From Collider
The pieces of Christopher Nolan‘s next cinematic puzzle are starting to fall into place, as Robert Pattinson is poised to star opposite John David Washington in the next film from the director of Inception, Collider has exclusively learned.

With plot details being kept under wraps, little is known about the actual film, though Variety described it as “a massive, innovative action blockbuster” that will once again be shown in IMAX — no surprise given Nolan’s preference for the large-screen format. Nolan will produce alongside his wife and longtime collaborator, Emma Thomas, and Warner Bros. will release the movie on July 17, 2020, with production expected to start this summer.

My understanding is that Pattinson and Washington (BlacKkKlansman) will play the two leads, and there will also be an age-appropriate female lead, as well as an older male co-star. I don’t know if there’s a love triangle in play here, or whether Pattinson and Washington will be friends or enemies, so just like all of you, I can’t wait to find out what Nolan’s next movie is actually about. There’s speculation that the film could be a sequel of sorts to Inception, and while I don’t expect that to be the case — outside of his Batman trilogy, Nolan has eschewed franchise fare, including sequels — I suppose anything is possible. You never know with Nolan, who’s coming off of 2017’s Dunkirk, which brought him his first Oscar nomination as a director and grossed $526 million worldwide, so the world (and Hollywood especially) is his oyster.

From Variety
Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson are on board to co-star with John David Washington in Christopher Nolan’s next movie, Variety has learned.

Nolan recently finished the script for the currently untitled film and Warner Bros. quickly dated it for July 17, 2020 — a slot the studio often reserves for the director, most recently with “Dunkirk.” Not only was that film a success at the box office, bringing in $526 million worldwide, but it also earned Nolan an Oscar nomination for director, his first in the category.

The project has become one of the more highly coveted ones in Hollywood, even though most of the industry has been kept in the dark about everything from casting to plot details. One insider described the pic as a massive action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax.

James Gray Talks About The "Wonderful Work" Robert Pattinson Does In 'The Lost City Of Z'

James Gray Talks About The "Wonderful Work" Robert Pattinson Does In 'The Lost City Of Z'

It's great to hear and read praise about Rob from directors and James Gray, like all the others Rob has worked with in the past, has nothing but praise for Rob.
Here's a snippet of his interview with LA Weekly where he talks about working with Rob.

image host

Robert Pattinson has done a lot of interesting work with directors like David Cronenberg, but I would never classify any of it as realist; what he does in a film like Cosmopolis is very arch. But in your film, he completely disappears into the part.

It’s an act of generosity, really. Rob has this ridiculous beard and it’s such great, self-effacing, wonderful work he’s doing. I love actors very much because they do things I could never do. Directors are all frustrated actors anyway, and it’s very exciting as a filmmaker to see an actor who really is that generous with you. It was a very happy shoot — as arduous as it was, brutal as it was.

"Robert Is Very Enigmatic, With A Powerful Presence" ~ Claire Denis Talks About Rob & High Life

You're going to love what Claire has to say about Rob in this interview with Vogue Homme. She talks about first meeting him, how his confidence in High Life renewed her confidence in the project, how he gives off an aura that makes you immediately want to film him and more.

I especially like the part at the end where she's hoping she'll be able to keep a cool head on the first day of filming. Good luck with that one Claire.

This year, the jury has given the TAP Revelation Award to a director, Brady Corbet, for his film Childhood of a Leader.

"Pattinson Is A Very, Very Smart, Very Well-Educated & Intelligent Young Man" ~ Werner Herzog

"Pattinson Is A Very, Very Smart, Very Well-Educated & Intelligent Young Man" ~ Werner Herzog

With Queen of the Desert having it's American Premiere at the AFI Fest this week The Daily Beast spoke to Werner Herzog where he spoke a bit about the movie and mentioned working with Robert Pattinson. Not surprisingly he had very complimentary things to say about Rob:
"He cast Robert Pattinson as T.E. Lawrence before fully grasping how huge the Twilight franchise was.

“I only realized that wherever I showed up in Morocco there were screeching teenies,” he smiled. “Pattinson is a very, very smart, very well-educated and intelligent young man. When he says things in the film, they’re always credible. You see you don’t just have a pretty face. It was a pleasure to have him around. A good comrade, as well.”"

"He’s Really Charismatic" ~ Brady Corbet Talks Robert Pattinson To Variety

"He’s Really Charismatic" ~ Brady Corbet Talks Robert Pattinson To Variety

Brady Corbet, Director of The Childhood of A Leader, did a Q&A with Variety where he spoke about the movie and how Robert Pattinson got involved.
Check out the excerpt where he mentions Rob below.

 photo photo.jpg
Loosely inspired by the early childhood experiences of many of the most infamous dictators of the 20th century, “The Childhood of a Leader” stars Berenice Bejo and Liam Cunningham as an American couple settling into the French countryside at the end of the World War I, at which time the father is involved in the delicate peace negotiations surrounding the Treaty of Versailles. His wife is a devout Christian who struggles with the tantrums of their son (Tom Sweet), an angelic-looking boy whose behaviour becomes increasingly disturbing. Robert Pattinson and Stacy Martin also appear in the film, which also brought Corbet a cash prize in the form of Luigi De Laurentiis award for best debut.

Variety: How did Robert Pattinson get involved?

Corbet: Robert Pattinson is a friend of ours, and we really have a lot of common interests and tastes. He’s really charismatic, and we thought it would be wonderful to apply that charisma to these very early, seemingly unimportant sequences, and only really by the end of the film do you realise how significant they are.

Read the Full Q&A over at Variety

Also if you happen to live in or near Pleasantville, New York there will be a screening of The Childhood of a Leader followed by a Q&A with Brady Corbet this Sunday (25th Oct) at the Jacob Burns Film Center. More details and links to purchase tickets can be found HERE

Anton Corbijn Talks About Robert Pattinson At The Latin American Premiere Of 'Life'

Anton Corbijn Talks About Robert Pattinson At The Latin American Premiere Of 'Life'

On Friday night at the Guanajuato International Film in Mexico Life made it's Latin American premiere. Director Anton Corbijn was in attendance and conducted a Q&A after the screening of the movie.
Below are some extracts (translated using Google translate) where he talks about Robert Pattinson.

 photo Life_Photocall_Berlin_Flm_Festival33.jpg

Excelsior:

"GUANAJUATO, 26 July.- Although many related and pigeonhole the name of Robert Pattinson in the Twilight series, there are others, such as Dutch director Anton Corbijn who see beyond the stigma and / or social labels.

That's why I did not offer preposterous British actor the role of Dennis Stock, this famous photographer 50s that caught James Dean three months before his death in the film Life.

"After Twilight I felt Robert tried to choose characters away from this whole saga.

"He wants to prove to the world that he is a real actor can do challenging roles and that reminded me of Dennis Stock, a photographer who wanted to check he was good at what he did. That part was something I found in common between the two.

On the other hand, Robert is always being chased by photographers and I liked the idea that in the film he had to act like a photographer behind a star, Anton Corbijn said to questions expressed by Excelsior.

The filmmaker, who likewise attended the Festival last year to promote The most wanted man, was forceful in ensuring that while speaking of James Dean Life is not a movie about him, but the man behind the lens that made him some emblematic images that turned it around the world.

"Whoever thinks that this film is about James, I'm afraid to say that is not so.

"In fact, when I was offered the script I did not care because I did not want to make a film about James Dean, however, when I began to see that the story was more about the photographer, I felt I identified because basically that's what I've been doing for the last 40 years, " said Corbijn.

In addition to Robert Pattinson, Life features performances from Dane DeHaan, Ben Kingsley, Kristen Hager and Joel Elgerton.

This film was shot in Canada and does not have release date in Mexico. "

Eluniversal:

"Guanajuato.- Because after Twilight Robert Pattinson had shown he wanted to remove the image of an easy film actor, he was chosen to star in Life, directed by Anton Corbijn.

In the movie he plays professional photographer Dennis Stock, who came to have a friendly relationship with James Dean, legend of cinema. That closeness was born after
the image Stock took of Dean in 1955.


"I had noticed that he took movies out of the ordinary (Bel Ami and Cosmopolis) wanting to check that he was a real actor; and good in his life he is chased by photographers, and now he must act as one, "the director recalled yesterday.


Life appeared
Friday night at the Teatro Juarez in this city, in the framework of the International Film Festival that ended this weekend.


"It is not a biography of James Dean, so if people believe that's what they'll see they better get out," joked the filmmaker, shortly before the screening.


Life still has no release date in Mexico. It was launched internationally in February, during the Berlinale and now it was the event of the Bajio.


In September it will reach cinemas in France, UK and Ireland, one month later will be the turn of Italy and Germany."

AM.com:

Corbijn spoke with Sara Hoch to present his latest film at the historic Teatro Juarez, so the filmmaker traveled to Guanajuato to share with buffs his short film inspired by the friendship that had photographer Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) and the new promise of cinema in the mid-fifties, James Dean (Dane DeHaan)
On choosing Pattinson for the role of the photographer, he said he and Stock have a lot in common, at the time Stock sought recognition, the same goes for Pattinson,
who sought the opportunity to demonstrate that he is a serious actor despite the latest movies that launched him to global fame.


He said he was not interested in making a film about the life of James Dean, the writer liked the character of the photographer and that is why on Friday night hundreds of people had the opportunity to see the film to be released in theaters film at the end of the year.

Martin Koolhaven Talks Brimstone, Robert Pattinson Fans & More On Dutch Radio

Martin Koolhaven Talks Brimstone, Robert Pattinson Fans & More On Dutch Radio 

 photo icarrousel_image.jpg photo AyK5izI-Imgur-1.jpg

Martin Koolhaven (Brimstone Director) appeared on Dutch radio yesterday where he spoke about getting ready for the start of filming, Robert Pattinson fans and lots more.

Thanks to we have a transcript of the interview below.
"Martin Koolhoven, director of BRIMSTONE, appeared in the Radio 6 studio in The Netherlands, today March 10th 2015, to share his favorite Prince songs. He’s a huge fan of this performer. In between songs he shared some snippets of info about his new movie Brimstone.

He told that it took him a long time to write the script and many people are very enthusiastic about it. Although he has to prove it yet, he believes it is going to be a good movie.

Now the time that he is going to start filming comes closer things are a bit nerve-wrecking. He’s still figuring out what is possible and what he can and/or cannot do.

Today he had meetings with the people of sound and sound design. They had to determine which way to go and what to take into account during filming. E.g. there is an emotional scene that needs music and next is a very silent scene. Of course a scene is never completely without sound, there is always something like a ticking clock, but they want something more original, so what is that sound going to be? Sometimes that particular sound also needs images and those are things that have to be discussed. On set only the voices will be recorded and not the other sounds like footsteps, noise made with cups etc. Those sounds will be cut and added later in post-production. All decisions have certain consequences. He points out that this is a normal procedure with every movie.

When he’s asked about having Robert Pattinson in his movie, he said that Rob’s fans are unbelievable, all the time they search the internet for information and they translate everything. He said that he’s tagged in tweets and gets many questions. They follow him on Twitter and (laughed) that is definitely not because of his football related tweets.

He said that he will start filming Brimstone in less than two months from now. And doesn't want to give too much away about the project as he doesn't know yet how he wants to present the movie and things can always change. The movie started out as being a Western set in the late 19th century and now it’s more a thriller.

The movie starts with Mia Warsikowska as Liz who lives in a small village that is terrorized by the new preacher played by Guy Pearce. He doesn't expect that filming with huge stars will be any different for him. Until now the cast is really nice and down-to-earth without Hollywood bullsh*t and so far they haven’t made any crazy demands for their trailers.

He repeats that it took him a long time to write the script and it was really a ‘difficult delivery’. After finishing the script, he searched for financing and sent the script to numerous agencies in Hollywood. Everywhere he went he got the same answer: ‘We’ll read it next week’ But they never did. A producer friend of his business companion said they were doing it all wrong and gave them names of casting directors and Koolhoven chose Des Hamilton who was immediately enthusiastic and then things really started happening.

Koolhoven said that he only gets really really nervous before the start of a football match, but ……. there is not much time left and he admits to not having found all the film-locations yet."

Thanks to @RobsPromotionTeam for translating the Rob parts of the interview.
If you want to listen to the interview (in Dutch) then head over HERE

Translation

Question: How did you get Pattinson to join?
Koolhoven: That goes through an agency. I was watching some movies Guy Pearce was in and last year he was in THE ROVER and Pattinson was in there too. So I happened to stumble on that and I fell for that role. It is completely different from his role in Brimstone, but I thought he was really good.

Question: What will he be doing exactly in your movie?
Koolhoven: He will play an outlaw and I'm not going to say more than that. It's a secret.

Question: And all Pattinson fans love you now?
Koolhoven: Yes ha ha ha last night things went crazy and Twitter exploded. People started to talk to me from all over the world in strange languages.

 photo WernerHerzogampRobertPattinson.jpg

We have two films to look forward to in 2015 and both of them have Rob tackling real life characters. T.E. Lawrence is arguably the better known character and Werner Herzog has nothing but praise to give Rob for his take on the iconic figure in Queen of the Desert.

Translation by PAW of Bande à Part:
Can you tell us more about your next movie 'Queen Of The Desert'?
In less than ten days, I will start the mixing. The filming and editing are completed and I should be able to put an end to the movie in the first days of december.I don't know where or when it will be shown for the first time. 
The cast is really impressive: Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson...
They all really wanted to work with me. I was asked why I chose Pattinson. It's not a big part, and it matched perfectly. I needed an englishman who still looks like a schoolboy but which is very smart. He plays Lawrence of Arabia, but at the age of 22, on an archeological site. Kidman, who plays the main role is wondering what that kid has to do in a place like this, and an archeologist tells her that this kid has a PhD.Pattinson is really good in that role. He is a smart man and the choice was quite natural.
If you understand French, here's the original text: 
Pouvez-vous nous dire quelques mots sur 'Queen of the Desert', votre prochain film? 
Dans moins de dix jours, je vais débuter le mixage. Le tournage et le montage sont terminés et je devrais pouvoir mettre un point final au film dans les premiers jours de décembre. Je ne sais ni quand, ni où il sera montré en premier. 
Le casting est très prestigieux: Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Robert Pattinson… 
Ils voulaient tous vraiment travailler avec moi. On m’a demandé pourquoi j’avais choisi Pattinson. Ce n’est pas un grand rôle, et il correspondait parfaitement. J’avais besoin d’un Anglais, qui ait encore l’air d’un écolier, mais qui soit très intelligent. Il joue Lawrence d’Arabie, mais à 22 ans, sur un site archéologique. Kidman, qui joue le rôle-titre, se demande ce que ce gamin vient faire là et un archéologue lui répond que le gamin en question a un doctorat. Pattinson est très bon dans ce rôle. C’est un homme intelligent et le choix était tout à fait naturel.

'Rob Really Wants To Prove Himself & For Me That Was Great For That Role' ~ Anton Corbijn Talks About Robert Pattinson & 'Life'

In an interview with Dazed Anton Corbijn spoke about Rob's character Dennis Stock in Life and casting Rob for the role.

 photo DaneRob-1.jpg

Here's an excerpt from the interview:
In your films you've portrayed talented men who burn out young – Ian Curtis in Control, and now James Dean and photographer Dennis Stock. Are you interested in the myth-making process that happens around these guys?

Anton Corbijn: If anything, it's unmasking because I always bring it down to very normal life. In photography I can imagine that people think I make images iconic, but with films I don't think that's the case. The film with James Dean is actually about the photographer. He's the lead role, they just share screen time. I had a similar experience when I was young in Holland. I became the photographer of somebody who became the biggest rock star we ever had there (Herman Brood), so it was interesting to see how that balance works when I thought I was helping him and he probably thought he was helping me. It's the same with this story.

Was it an easy process casting Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in your upcoming film Life?

Anton Corbijn: Dane didn't want to take a meeting with me initially, as he couldn't see himself in James Dean's shoes. But he was persuaded by a mutual friend, and said yes in the end. He's fabulous, a very good actor. Rob was interested in the film because he really wants to prove himself and for me that was great for that role. If you look at the roles he's taking on – like the ones with Cronenberg – he really wants to do very different, non-mainstream films and get out of that pigeonhole.

"He Has A Really Beguiling Physical Energy, Clearly Smart" David Michod Talks About Robert Pattinson

"He Has A Really Beguiling Physical Energy, Clearly Smart" David Michod Talks About Robert Pattinson

 photo MQSydney8.jpg

I love to hear people praise Rob. Here David Michod says some great things about him to the HeraldSun & The Daily Telegraph.
Click the links to read the full articles.




From HeraldSun

I hadn’t seen the Twilight movies but friends of mine had said he (Pattinson) was an interesting guy,” Michod said in Adelaide.

Pattinson, who gives a standout performance, hates auditioning but Michod used the process to explore the character of the wounded man who Eric (Guy Pearce) kidnaps in the movie.

“I put him through four hours of what he would call hell and I used three hours and 55 minutes to explore the character with him,” says ­Michod. “He has a really beguiling physical energy, clearly smart, and he was actively seeking out directors whose work he liked.”

The resulting film, shot entirely on location in South Australia, particularly around the northern outback towns of Leigh Creek and Maree, won strong reviews when shown at the Cannes Film Festival.

From Daily Telegraph (Australia)

HIS days as a bloodsucker are long behind him but try telling that to the hundreds that swamped The State Theatre last night to catch a glimpse of their favourite vamp Robert Pattinson.

Back in town to unveil his new Aussie flick The Rover — a film miles from his turn as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series — the British thespian spent around 30 minutes greeting fans and signing autographs along Market Street of which a lane of traffic was barricaded for the event.

Such was the hysteria, even The Rover’s director, Sydneysider David Michod, admitted he sympathised for his leading man who — even three years after the last Twilight film wrapped — cannot shake the adulation.

“All the time ... I feel for him all the time,” Michod said on last night’s red carpet.

“It’s kind of nuts the bubble that he has to live inside.

“There are kind of very few people in the world who can inspire that sort of bizarre ‘Beatlemania’ and it was one of the extraordinary experiences of working with him out in the desert. It was so freeing for him.

“To be able to sit out in the street with him at the end of the day and drink a beer.

“It was quite amazing.”

Judging by his post-Twilight body of work it’s clear Pattinson is doing his best to distance himself from his star-making role.

In The Rover, a futuristic thriller set in the Aussie outback, Pattinson plays a slow-witted crim opposite Guy Pearce who also starred in Michod’s last major film Animal Kingdom.

The Rover has earned Pattinson rave reviews while for Michod, the film has been a springboard into his next project — writing and directing Brad Pitt’s next big film The Operators.
