Robert Pattinson’s Upcoming Projects

 image host

I tweeted today that The King has finally been removed from Rob’s IMDbPro page.  It’s not a surprise to me because I believe Justin Kroll when he said that Rob wasn’t involved given he had the exclusive on Joel Edgerton.  IMDb | IMDbPro isn’t 100% accurate at the best of times, but I thought I’d take this opportunity to reflect on the projects in development currently listed on Rob’s page:

The Lighthouse (Robert Eggers)

Robert Pattinson said he was excited about his next project and “excited to be in a horror movie by Robert Eggers.”

Rob is currently in Nova Scotia with William Dafoe.  The film is currently in pre-production and filming is rumoured to commence on Monday 9 April 2018 and scheduled to finish around 11 May 2018.  We also know they have finalised the building of the lighthouse (see pic above) and the roads are now closed off from the general public.  It’s currently slated to be released in 2019.

The Souvenir: Part 2 (Joanna Hogg)

Not much is known about The Souvenir: Part 2 other than filming is supposed to start in the summer of this year and that Rob will have a leading role.  Part 1 is currently post production as at 22 October 2017, but we should know next Thursday (12 April 2018) if it is in fact going to Cannes as has been rumoured.

Waiting for the Barbarians (Ciro Guerra)

“I saw ‘Embrace the Serpent’ that last day it played at the Sunshine in New York and the matinee was packed. I just knew Ciro Guerra’s next film was going to be amazing. I’m going to do ‘Waiting for the Barbarians’ with Mark Rylance.”

This is also rumoured to be filming at the end of this year.  Depending on who you believe it’s either being filmed in South Africa or Chile.  Rob will star with Mark Rylance (who is fabulous in Ready Player One).  Rob’s role was originally listed as Colonel Joll, but has now been updated to “Lieutenant”.  I’ve speculated that this could be a combination of Colonel Joll and other characters. I don’t recall there being a specific character in the novel called “Lieutenant”.  I was looking forward to Rob playing Joll – hopefully “Lieutenant” will be as mean and severe as Joll.  I think Rob does angry and cruel well. PS.  That’s not a spoiler – if you’ve read the novel then you know exactly the kind of character Joll is.

The Devil All The Time (Antonio Campos)

“It’s got a really fun part in it. I hope it’s going to happen, I think it will. I love Antonio, I’m sort of friends with him as well and I think Mia Goth [“Cure for Wellness,” “Nymphomaniac”] will be in it, and she’s excited about it as well.”

This film is still pretty much under wraps.  It’s the film I’m anticipating the most because I absolutely loved the book.  Roy is an evangelist and again I think Rob will have a lot of fun with this role if it stays close to the book.  Not much is known about when it may film, but I’m prepared to wait a long time for this one.

Idol’s Eye (Olivier Assayas)

“Every few months it kind of reappears again, but I think it’s happening with [Sylvester] Stallone, which is cool. I’m still always talking to them and seeing what’s going to happen, but I love Olivier.”

This film has given us highs and lows.  Highs because of Rob and his moustache – lows because Rob was on set with Robert De Niro when the plug was pulled on the first day by the financiers back in 2015.  There’s new financier’s behind it (The Fyzz Facility) and Rob has said that he talks to Assayas every few months about this project.  It did take The Lost City of Z almost 9 years to get off the ground so, although I’m a Doubting Thomas about whether this film will be made, you just never know.

The Trap (Harmony Korine)

“it’s a “super propulsive, pretty highly violent revenge movie.” Harmony Korine in 2015

Harmony’s not the only one who lost interest in this.  I guess it’s still a possibility and the thought of Rob working with Al Pacino.  Personally I think Harmony’s new film “The Beach Bum” with Matthew McConaughey sounds a little too similar. I’d be surprised if this film eventuated, but then I’m happy to be proven wrong.  Rob does look mighty fit of late.

Other than his projects in development on IMDbPro, we still have Mona Fastvold’s “The Bleaching Yard” which again, not much is known other than Le Cinema Club mentioned that Mona was planning to shoot it in 2018.  Not sure how accurate they may be.  There’s also the unknown David Michôd project and the film Rob mentioned to The Playlist back in March 2017 that is supposedly 100% improvised “And then hopefully [I’m] doing this 100% improvised movie afterwards. You just try and do things that you hope you won’t be bored in and then hopefully other people won’t be bored in it too,” Pattinson teased.”.

I have no idea what that film will be, but it keeps us guessing and with the possibility that High Life won’t be making it to Cannes, there’s definitely a lot to look forward to in 2018 – including Damsel on our screens.

    As you mentioned, we have a lot to look forward to in 2018. I’m dying for Idol’s Eye to get off the ground and agre that Rob would be fantastic as Roy in Devil All of The Time.
