Brady had some really lovely words to say about his friend Robert Pattinson.  In a nutshell he’s not sure if Robert will be in his next film “Vox Lux”, but he does appear to be in Mona’s next film “The Bleaching Yard”.  Oh and the Safdie’s had high praise for Robert

From Eye for Film:

Given that he feels so strongly about the mythology of fan culture, it’s ironic that he has cast Pattinson in the film, as the actor has built up an ardent following in the years since the Twilight films, with a large number of fan sites dedicated to his work and even the internet-friendly abbreviation RPatz. Corbet says he was interesting in using certain expectations to his advantage.

“It’s really bizarre,” says Corbet “There’s a couple of things. First of all, I’m not that connected to the notion of Rob as a celebrity, because I’ve known him for a long time and I didn’t discover him that way. The other thing is that I thought it would be really, really interesting to have this sort of Janet Leigh in Psycho effect, where you have someone who is a public figure and people have their eye on him, he’s interesting, he’s charismatic, he’s compelling, he’s handsome. And I thought, that it would really give weight to the first 20 minutes of the film. So I hired him for all of those reasons. I hired him because the role was written for a young man that was a bit younger than the female character, handsome and English, so I thought of him.

Anyone who has spent any time with the guy will know that he’s super hard-working and he never complains. I was just talking to the Safdie brothers, who are directing a new film with him [Good Time], and Josh was like, ‘Dude, we were shooting 19 hour days and he didn’t fucking complain once.’ They were just amazed by his work ethic and so am I. I think he and I will work together for a long time.”

Corbet isn’t sure yet whether Pattinson will feature in his next film Vox Lux yet. “It’s a big cast and it’s an ensemble piece and I have to work out what age everyone is in relationship to each other,” he says, but the British star is working with Corbet’s wife and collaborator Mona Fastvold on her upcoming film The Bleaching Yard.

“It’s a period drama,” says Corbet “The source material is from a very famous Norwegian author called Tarjei Vesaas and she’s set it in a whaling community in the 1940s, which is not in the book. It’s really great. We’re making that with Chris Cohen who produced Childhood as well and her producers from The Sleepwalker. This is the first time as a family that we have made two separate projects.” [My emphasis]

He also says that compared to The Childhood Of A Leader, Vox Lux has been a must swifter project.

There’s nothing listed on Mona’s IMDbPro ‘projects in development’ as yet, but as we know that doesn’t mean anything *looks at Damsel*.
