According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rob has teamed up with filmmaker Parker J Finn to remake the Polish filmmaker Andrzej Zulawski’s 1981 cult supernatural horror film “Possession”. Rob will produce through Icki Eneo Arlo and is rumoured to perhaps star in the film:

The project has engaged the town’s attention, with a bidding war breaking out among A24, Netflix, Paramount, Sony and Warner Bros. The process is in the early stages, with meetings taking place this week, according to sources, and other companies may enter the fray.

Finn is attached to write the script, direct and produce via his Bad Feeling banner. Pattinson is producing via his production company Icki Eneo Arlo; his acting involvement will be clarified down the road as the script and schedules develop. Also producing is Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, who helped produce Zach Cregger’s breakout Barbarian.

Set in West Berlin, Possession starred Sam Neill as a spy who returns home from the field to his wife (Isabella Adjani) and son. All is not quiet on the marital front as the wife asks for a divorce and the couple next descends into a destructive cycle that not only includes infidelity and neglect but spins into murder, a tentacled alien creature and doppelgangers.

The movie was Zulawski’s meditation on marriage, written as a reaction to his own crumbling marital life. The movie, an international co-production between France and Germany, was not a hit nor particularly well-received when it was released, but it gained a cult status for the filmmaker’s full commitment to the premise and went through a reappraisal.

The reception to the pitches has been extremely positive, with execs talking about the “batshit” and “out there” story but also its strong commercial potential. How to market the eventual movie is also part of the conversations.

Happy to see some film news from Rob even if it means he’s behind the scenes.
