According to Full Circle Cinema:

In 2021 it was announced that Chloé Zhao is set to write, direct, and produce an all-new sci-fi Western take on Dracula for Universal. Now it has been reported by Daniel Richtman that Robert Pattinson is in talks to star as the iconic character.

The film will reportedly follow Dracula after he awakens many years in the future. Themes of being on the fringes of society will be focused on in the feature.

Zhao is producing the project through her production company Highwayman. The filmmaker gained critical acclaim for Nomadland, for which she earned the Academy Award for Best Director to match the film’s Best Picture award. Most recently, she helmed Marvel Studios’ Eternals in 2021.

Pattinson dominated Hollywood last year with his debut as Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves The Batman. The star’s next upcoming projects include Adam McKay’s Average Height, Average Build and Bong Joon Ho’s Mickey 17.

Earlier in March 2023, The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Chloé and she confirmed that she was currently writing the script (Note: IMDbPro currently shows script stage as at 10 February 2023). Earlier in 2021, THR wrote this about Dracula:

Zhao will write, direct and produce through her production company, Highwayman.
This new Dracula project, however, will be a far cry from the more traditional or even modern incarnations made over the years. Details are being kept in the coffin, but Zhao’s version is described as an original, futuristic, sci-fi Western. Themes of being on society’s fringes, something Zhao has tackled in her previous work, will course through the project’s veins.

Stated Zhao: “I’ve always been fascinated by vampires and the concept of the Other they embody. I’m very excited to work with Donna, Peter and the team at Universal to reimagine such a beloved character.”

This could be something Rob would want to do, but more importantly I can see Rob wanting to work with Chloé. Interesting times ahead so stay tuned.

Robert Pattinson Decliness Lead Role in “Infinity Pool”

According to JacobDFilm, Rob passed on the lead role in an upcoming film by Brandon Cronenberg titled “Infinity Pool”, a tourist resort satire with sci-fi/horror elements. There is no start date as yet, so either Rob didn’t want to be involved in another sci-fi film or he might have up something else up his sleeve in addition to The Stars at Noon. Looking forward to hearing some new film news in 2021.

Again, thanks @Monsieur_HJ for heads up.

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.

David Michôd #TheKing added to Robert Pattinson IMDbPro Page

  image host

I just don’t know what to believe this week.  Rob’s been mentioned in a few articles with new projects – first it was posted that he would be in a film with Willem Dafoe (which turns out was possibly a hoax – although it is a Robert Eggers film and Eggers did co-present a George A Romero retrospective at Metrograph with Josh Safdie last October.  I want to so believe that they talked about working with Rob. It’s probably a stretch I know but …).  Timothee Chalamet was announced yesterday to star in David Michôd’s “The King” which a lot of you will know I’ve speculated about since Rob mentioned working with David in Cannes.  Turns out IMDbPro did add “The King” to Rob and David’s pages, although strangely enough it initially appeared under “Past Films & Video”.  This morning I woke up to it being moved into “Projects in Development”.  Although no official confirmation of Rob’s attachment to the film has been made, this is what a few of the media outlets are saying:

Little White Lies

According to Deadline Chalamet is set to appear in The King as the eponymous English monarch, who famously led his army to victory at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 during the Hundred Years’ War with France. He died aged 36, leaving the throne to his infant son.

Michôd’s previous feature, the Brad Pitt-fronted military satire War Machine, arrived on Netflix last year to little fanfare. The Australian filmmaker has teamed up with regular collaborator and compatriot Joel Edgerton to pen the script for The King, and with Chalamet joining Robert Pattinson in the principle cast, we’re bracing ourselves for something big. [My emphasis]


There is some speculation that Robert Pattinson may co-star. Indeed, he is the only other actor listed on IMDB at the moment. Though, that appears to stem from a comment he made during a press conference at Cannes, in which he said he might be working with Michôd on a future project. So don’t necessarily hold your breath on that one.

Production is slated to begin in June so I’m just going to be sitting over here waiting for official confirmation before I get really excited. Perhaps Rob will mention it next week during Berlinale.

UPDATED: 16 February 2018

The Hollywood Reporter when reporting about Rob’s involvement in Robert Eggers’ “The Lighthouse” mentioned the following:

Pattinson recently debuted his comedic Western Damsel at the Sundance Film Festival and is set for the Netflix feature The King, starring opposite Timothee Chalamet.

The Pattinsonaissance is in full swing for the first 6 months of 2017

Here we are at the end of the first 6 months of 2017 and boy what a 6 months it’s been for Robert. We started off 2017 with Queen of the Desert, The Childhood of a Leader and The Lost City of Z being screened and were anticipating Good Time and Damsel.  Both the latter films were included in Most Anticipated Lists for 2017.  As was High Life, but we learnt early on that the film wasn’t being shot until at last August 2017.  But let’s get down to what has been new in the past 6 months.  Dior unleashed a new campaign in January – Dior Homme Sport.  Then Robert surprised us by attending Albane Cleret’s “A Club” New Year’s Eve Dinner on 13 January 2017 where he was pictured with Sidney Toledano. February saw Xavier Beauvois share photos of Robert visiting the set of  Claire Denis’s film “Let the Sunshine In” and well the sunshine always shines when Robert’s around. It also gave us The Lost City of Z premieres at Berlinale and the UK – meaning photocalls, press conferences and red carpet goodness.  It also unleashed new photoshoots, like Francois Berthier at Berlinale and the Berlinale Portrait.  March was relatively quiet, but I guess it was the calm before the storm, although we did get confirmation that Robert was doing music for the Zellner Bros’s Damsel thanks to Metro UK.  It also gave us Uncle Karl unleashing his photographs from a new Dior campaign – Black Carpet Collection. There was also a hint that Good Time could be at Cannes and A24 did update their website to include the film as “coming soon”. But just as March was leaving, L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele in London let us know that Robert and Sam Bradley stopped by for a bite to eat and were gracious enough to take a photo with the restaurant staff. This takes us to April where Robert surprised us and a lot of people by turning up to a very sneaky premiere of The Lost City of Z in LA and also a Q&A. Josh and Benny introduced us to Connie Nikas for the first time as a treat for the film being selected “in competition” at Cannes. Robert popped up at a birthday celebration in LA and posed for a photo with film producer David Gorder and then literally popped up at Pop & Sukee Spring Soiree.  We were also teased about that new photoshoot by Torbjørn Rødland which I’ll talk more about shortly. Dior also treated us to a new photo – Robert wearing sunglasses is always a treat. I often say that Rayban missed out on having one of the best spokespersons – their loss. April finished off with the exciting news that Robert indeed is singing on the soundtrack of Damsel and Robert attending the birthday celebrations for Jaimie King (still admit I have no idea who she is). This now takes us to May. What can I say about May. We had so much goodness just in this one month – not only because it was Robert’s birthday, but Robert attending Cannes with Good Time, receiving critical acclaim for his performance and amazing photoshoots. But before we get to that, I uncovered BTS shots of Robert as Connie Nikas that American Liberty Bail Bonds had sitting on their website. Crash Magazine gave us the photoshoot we had been teased with in April by Torbjørn Rødland. The news hit that Robert was involved in a new movie by Joanna Hogg that would be co-produced by Martin Scorsese called The Souvenir. And then we had Cannes – photocalls, press conference, red carpet premiere, interviews, photoshoots and well just all round goodness.  Robert also confirmed that he would be doing future projects with Ciro Guerra, Antonio Campos and our very own David  Michôd. Robert also attended the premiere of Joaquin Phoenix/Lynne Ramsay “You Were Never Really Here” whilst in Cannes. Fabulous times just in the last week of May which filtered into June, giving us more new Dior/Cannes goodness and another new photoshoot. Not to mention Robert on the cover of Gala France (which as Posh pointed out was one of the few times that there was a male on the cover), Cahier Du Cinema and CinemaScope.  New photoshoots – ParisMatch,  NY Times and Victoria Stevens, not to mention brand new interviews. Also, as an aside, Good Time popped up as a last minute inclusion at the Sydney Film Festival – the positive reviews and accolades continued for his performance as Connie Nikas. We found out that Robert turned up to watch his longtime friend Tom Sturridge on Broadway in his new play “1984”  and have dinner with Bret Easton Ellis. Connie Nikas leads us out of June and we have so much to look forward to in the next 6 months. Bring it Robert – bring it.

My spidey senses must have been working overtime on Sunday when I wrapped up our week in review with “Hope we get some additional film news next week”.  Obviously this isn’t 100% but it’s still interesting to wake up to.  According to Les Inrocks:

After dazzling in Cannes, where it won the Camera d’Or, Houda Benyamina came to the United States last week  to defend the colors of her rebellious teen movie, Divine . Invited by the Festival of the American Film Institue (AFI), stronghold of the industry and antechamber of the Oscars which is held each fall in Los Angeles, the French filmmaker has dominated the charts, leaving with two audience awards and special mention of the jury for the actress Oulaya Amamra.

But Houda Benyamina, unknown and under the radar eight months ago, hadn’t only come to Los Angeles to ensure after-sales of her film. Now represented by an American agent, she also actively started preparing for her next feature film and provided the first details. It will be a costume drama, set in a time of war, which tells a love story ” lyrical and burning”  between a French and a young American. embody the latter, the director of 36 years has already met several actors, including James Franco and Robert Pattinson, who have expressed interest in the project. “Casting ahead but we’re still at the stage of meetings, discussions, “ says Huda Benyamina, who says she wants to remain faithful to the methods of intense shooting of guerrilla warfare proven in Divine.

While waiting until her casting becomes clearer, the new film by Houda Benyamina, will be produced by the French company behind Divine, Easy Tiger, and should gradually reveal its ambitious current promises in 2017.

Translation via Google

Move over Franco - you can’t have it all lol. Also, for those interested, there’s nothing in her “projects in development” on IMDbPro yet, but I’ll keep an eye on it.

Thanks Posh for the heads up.

Updated:  Madame Figaro August interview

You are currently writing. Can you tell us a little bit more?

I could do great things with Robert Pattinson

It will be a great love story, told over 30 years, on a political background. A film about freedom and betrayal. It will not be turned in the suburbs (laughs, Ed). Oulaya, my sister, is already in casting and the main actor will be American. My agent across the Atlantic asked me what profile I wanted to turn to and I told him about Robert Pattinson.

Robert Pattinson ?!
This guy has a crazy potential! It has a very animal side, it has a truly rich interiority. The problem is that despite him still riding the wave of Twilight.But I really think it’s an actor in the making. There’s a lot to pick up at home. It has not exploded yet. I think we could do great things together.
