Christopher Nolan Talks Robert Pattinson Driving Skills & Bungee Jumping in Tenet

With the release of Tenet on DVD/Bluray/4K in the US, Christopher Nolan talks with USA Today. Below is the excerpt concerning comments about Rob:

Question: So how did you tell John David Washington and Robert Pattinson that they’d actually be bungee-jumping onto a tall Mumbai building?

Christopher Nolan: I left that to George Cottle, our stunt coordinator, who came up with the idea of actually bungee jumping up the building, which was pretty spectacular, and I added it to the script. He said to them, “We want you to do the first half of this yourselves and actually launch you into the air over the street.” They trusted him to find a way to do that and I think they actually had fun at the end of the day.

Q: Robert Pattinson is so believably self-deprecating about his driving. How was he behind the wheel, really?

Nolan: Rob was assessed by the stunt teams as a talented driver. We were able to get him do a lot of his closeups using a mounted camera. So he and John David would be in the car with cameras mounted on the side. We were also able to achieve a number of shots with different techniques in the sequence, but there are a couple of really hair-raising shots where Rob’s in the driver’s seat. What’s actually happening is there’s a stunt driver behind his head – facing the other way. And the entire shot is filmed in reverse. We’re able to get the camera right in on him as the driver, even though he’s actually the passenger, moving backwards.
