Robert Pattinson currently filming Robert Eggers #TheLighthouse

Gregory Wakeman from Metro spoke to Christopher Columbus (executive producer, The Witch) last month and the only tease he received about The Lighthouse is as follows:

We have just started shooting ‘The Lighthouse’ with Robert Eggers, it is second film after ‘The Witch.’ It stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, so we have a strong cast. He insisted on shooting the film and black and white and on 35mm negative.”

“He didn’t want to digitally do it. He is obsessed with that concept.  A lot of people scoffed at that, insisting that no-one wanted to see a black and white movie. It was a lot of arguing to get that accomplished. But he is actually shooting it now in black and white.”

At that point I tried to squeeze some more information out about “The Lighthouse” from Columbus, but he wouldn’t even give me a smidge.

“Unfortunately that’s about all I can say. Because Robert likes to keep a very secretive head on it.”

I guess that confirms the entire film will be black and white.

    Well, I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m totally on board with a black & white movie. I suspect I’m not the only one elated with that news.
