Robert Pattinson #Damsel making Sundance 2018 Wish Lists

 image host

As we head towards the end of 2017, predictions for what films may make Sundance Film Festival seem to surface around now.  I tweeted last week Ioncinema was hoping to see Damsel at Sundance.  If you missed the tweet, here’s what Ioncinema predicted and why:

We incorrectly labeled this guesstimate as dropping in 2017 and to be frank, we’re a bit surprised that it didn’t shore up at the Venice Film Festival apres Robert Pattinson (a significant go to player for the more difficult Euro-centric and American indie material) went to Cannes with Safdie Bros. Good Time. This only confirms that the film might have gone through a more arduous post-production phase than their Sundance preem Goliath (2008), Kid-Thing (2012) and Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter combined, or perhaps producers felt a Sundance preem might help better position the film for the market. Aside from some creative credits being clarified, very little in terms of updates have been offered on David and Nathan Zellner’s Damsel. Shot in Utah/Oregon back in August of 2016, Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Joseph Billingiere and the bros. are credited as the film’s top players. Tonally, we expect this western to feature a certain level of absurdity, and the look and setting to be memorable one with some choice folks in the creative departments: in cinematographer Adam Stone (Loving) and production designer Scott Kuzio (David Lowery’s Old Man and the Gun).

Gist: Written by the Zellner bros., this is about a businessman (Pattinson) who travels West to join his fiancée (Wasikowska) in the mountains.

Indiewire is also hoping to see Damsel at Sundance:

Directors: David and Nathan Zellner
Cast: Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska

Why We Hope It Heads to Park City: Austin-based sibling directors the Zellner brothers have slowly made their way beyond their insular local community, where they’ve been making eccentric shorts and outré features for years. “Kid-Thing” was a cult hit in the Sundance NEXT category, while their surreal drama “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” wowed competition and found some modicum of commercial success (bolstering the Team Bunzo meme in the process). Now they’re back with another idiosyncratic project produced on a somewhat larger scale, teaming with a post-“Good Time” Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska for the story of a businessman who travels to Utah to join his fiancé in the mountains. Pattinson has called the project “a slapstick comedy,” but the Zellners’ comedy is always a bit skewed, so expect something unpredictable. At Sundance, different is always welcome. —EK

Eric you’re not alone in hoping that it heads to Park City.  If it does, then hopefully we may see a teaser trailer before the year is out.
