Première Magazine’s Editor-in-chief, Mathieu Carratier tweeted this morning about Rob.  Given that he is the Editor-in-Chief of a respectable magazine, I doubt it’s just Mathieu trying to garner attention for himself or the magazine, but I guess time will tell.

Ok, real info then: Robert Pattinson is preparing a movie with Werner Herzog.

Since it seems to interest you, I can also tell you that Robert Pattinson has been spending time with Harmony Korine lately.

Although we don’t have any more information, I can say that there is a Project in Development on Werner Herzog’s IMDbPro which is a screenplay written by him and he is also listed as director called The Piano Tuner.  This project has been around since 2008 so you just never know if this is in fact what Rob is talking to them about.  For some reason, I feel like I’ve talked about this before.  [Maria:  Realised I’ve read the book by Daniel Mason back in 2002 – huh how funny is that.  Very interesting novel set in 1885.  No wonder the whole thing seemed familiar]


Of course there’s also Queen of the Desert in pre-production that is a chronicle of Gertrude Bell’s life, a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century.  Naomi Watts is cast as Gertrude Bell and she is currently the only role listed.

As for Harmony Korine, there is one Project in Development set for 2014 that already has Marlon Wayans attached to it.

The plot thickens …

    Thanks so much Maria….this would be amazing, I will forever be in awe of Werner for his wonderful movie Rescue Dawn with Christian Bale. Would love him to work with Rob….I’m sure it would be an amazing and rewarding experience (for both). 🙂

    Fingers crossed for Rob….can’t wait to hear anything about future projects. Thanks Maria.
