We don’t know if Rob’s contributed a song or whether he’s reading a poem, but he did contribute to “For the Birds: The Birdsong Project”, a five volume album project which will be released each month from May to September 2022. Rob’s not involved in Volume 1 which was released today, but I will update as soon as his volume is released. The poem above is not from the album but I thought you might want to be reminded of Rob reading a poem.

From Spin:

An astounding collection of top names in music, film, literature and beyond have contributed to For the Birds: The Birdsong Project, a 242-track album assembled by famed music supervisor Randall Poster. The project will be released digitally in five different volumes every month from now until September, with the first arriving today (May 20). A limited-edition 20-LP vinyl boxed set will also be available later this year. All proceeds will benefit the Audubon Society’s work to preserve bird habitats.

Poster was moved to begin work on For the Birds during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the quiet New York streets began to amplify the sounds of nature. Reaching out to his wide array of friends and collaborators, he discovered many of them were experiencing the same realizations as they quarantined around the world, and he began formulating a way to channel these feelings into birdsong-inspired music.

Among the contributors are Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Damon Albarn, Elvis Costello, Beck, Mark Ronson, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ frontwoman Karen O, Yo-Yo Ma, The Flaming Lips, The Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz, Kurt Vile, Terry Rile, UNKLE, Jarvis Cocker, Neu!’s Michael Rother and Kamasi Washington. Writers such as Jonathan Franzen, Maggie Smith and Mary Oliver are present as well, with their work recited by everyone from Bette Midler, Jeff Goldblum, Matthew McConaughey and Olivia Wilde to Sean Penn, Robert Pattinson, Tilda Swinton and Florence + The Machine’s Florence Welch.

Thanks @Monsieur_HJ for the heads up

This was extremely wonderful news to wake up to. First Rob confirmed for the role, not that I doubted he wouldn’t be, but now he is being joined by Toni Collette and Mark Ruffalo. Mark Ruffalo and Rob in a press tour. Yes please and thank you. Like I have said in a previous post, I am loving the wit in Mickey7 and the bonus that Rob will undoubtedly play both Mickey7 and Mickey8 – two Robs on the screen at the same time. See dreams can come true.

From Deadline:

Bong Joon Ho’s follow-up film to his Oscar-winning Parasite is gaining quite the ensemble, as sources tell Deadline that Toni Collette and Mark Ruffalo (whose deals are in final negotiations), along with Naomi Ackie, are joining Robert Pattinson in Bong’s next feature at Warner Bros. The untitled film is based on the novel Mickey7 by Edward Ashton.

Following Parasite’s sweep of the Oscars including for Best Director and Best Picture, Bong has taken his time in figuring out his next steps. Towards the end of 2021, he was presented the manuscript for the unpublished book by Ashton, which immediately drew his interest. The Oscar winner became loosely attached to the project late last year and prior to the holiday break met with some of the town’s most promising stars as every A-lister in their 30s was chasing the role. It wasn’t long before Bong and execs were impressed with Pattinson following his meeting and felt he was perfect for the role, with an offer going out right before the new year. [My emphasis]

Rob celebrated his birthday in New York with friends and I love we have this photo of him blowing out his candles. It almost feels like a ritual each year that he shares with us.

“I would say unbiasedly, which people may not think I’m able to say, Robert Pattinson is probably the best person I’ve ever shot, so professional always on … he’s a fantastic actor and collaborator.”

You might remember the BTS video of Rob’s recent photoshoot with GQ (see below). In a recent podcast with “In Love with the Process”, Gina fangirled about working with Rob. You can listen to the podcast below – Gina talking about Rob starts at 42.32 – funny to hear Gina’s reaction to Rob, I mean she’s only human.

I tweeted on Saturday that there had been some movement on IMDbPro for Mickey7. Hiram Bleetman who also worked on The Batman in a similar role is now showing as Prop Making Buyer/Coordinator for the film.

They say don’t always believe what you read, and we’ve all been down this road before, a new project is mentioned, everyone is coy about it and then boom Rob has to pull out for some reason or another. But now Jordan Ruimy from World of Reel is hearing rumours that Mickey7 is due to commencing filming in the UK in August:

We had reported on 12.20.21 that Bong Joon-ho was setting his sights on his next film and that Tilda Swinton was going to be part of it. The following month, Variety officially confirmed Bong’s next film, which the trade said would also star Robert Pattinson and be an adaptation of Edward Ashton’s upcoming novel, “Mickey 7.”

Now we’re hearing that production on “Mickey 7” is set to commence in the UK, with the months of August to December booked for shooting. That’s five months for Bong to get his movie ready for Cannes ‘23.

I’m reading this novel at the moment and loving its witty writing style. I can’t wait to see Rob’s interpretation of the character and it may be the closest we see Rob do comedy (of some sort).

Ellen von Unwerth shares her photo with Rob during their Wonderland photoshoot. Is it just me or do your eyes automatically go to those chains Rob’s wearing … okay just me.
