image host

Is he isn’t he – well know we know for sure that he is.  Media outlets are confirming that Rob has joined (with Lily Rose Depp and Ben Mendelsohn) David Michôd’s #TheKing and will play The Dauphin.  The film goes into production today in the UK:


Robert Pattinson and Lily-Rose Depp have joined the cast of David Michod’s Netflixoriginal production “The King,” the Shakespeare-inspired film starring Timothee Chalamet and Joel Edgerton. Shooting starts in Britain on Friday.

Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn has also joined the production. Mendelsohn previously featured in Michod’s debut feature, “Animal Kingdom,” in 2010. Pattinson and Michod previously worked together on 2014’s “The Rover.

Pattinson is set to play the French Dauphin, while Depp will play the French Princess Catherine. Mendelsohn will play Chalamet’s father, King Henry IV.

Liz Watts, who worked with the director on both “Animal Kingdom” and “The Rover,” will produce for Australia’s Porchlight Films, alongside Edgerton, Michod and Pitt’s production company, Plan B.

“The King”is scheduled to debut on Netflix worldwide in 2019.

The Hollywood Reporter

Robert Pattinson, Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn and Lily-Rose Depp have joined Timothee Chalamet and Joel Edgerton in Netflix’s upcoming period drama, The King.

David Michod, the director behind Netflix’s War Machine as well as crime drama Animal Kingdom, is helming the production, which begins June 1 in the U.K., and wrote the script with Edgerton.

According to Netflix, The King is based on Shakespeare’s Henry IV and V, focusing on a young and disgraced prince Hal (aka the future King Henry the V) who “inherits the crown and must learn what it means to be a king, guided by his one true friend, Falstaff.”

Chalamet is playing Hal, while Edgerton is Falstaff.

Pattinson will play The Dauphin, who is a French duke; Mendelsohn will play King Henry IV; Depp will portray Princess Catherine, daughter of the French king, who marries Hal; and Harris will step into the shoes of William.

Robert Pattinson Not Attached to David Michôd’s #TheKing

 image host

Interesting tweet this morning from Justin Kroll of Variety confirming that Rob is not attached to star in The King.  We have posted previously that there were rumours he was involved and it is listed on IMDbPro, but as we know (and has been pointed out to us numerous times over the past 10 years), IMDb is NOT gospel.  For now, I’m taking Justin’s tweet as confirmation of Rob’s non-involvement with this film.  To be honest, not sure where Rob may find the time to film this in June in any event given that The Lighthouse is being filmed up until May and then there’s talk of The Souvenir: Part 2 and Waiting for the Barbarians.  Time will tell of course if we’re all wrong.  In the meantime, I am hanging up my “speculation cap” and am content to just wait and hear official confirmation about what the next project will be that Rob and David have up their sleeves.  After all, patience is a virtue.

New Synopsis for David Michôd’s The King (which may or may not feature Robert Pattinson)

image host


Other than a few media outlets reporting it and Rob’s name being added to this project on IMDbPro (not to mention all the speculation the above photo may have caused from the Vogue party earlier this week), we really don’t have any official confirmation of Rob’s involvement yet.  In the meantime, Porchlight Films (Liz Watts is co-producing) has provided this new synopsis in their recent news update:

The King is an historical epic set against the varied textures of Medieval Britain in the early 1400s and based loosely on the life of Henry V, culminating in the famous English victory over French forces at the Battle of Agincourt. [My emphasis]

I know some have been speculating on which role Rob may play (if he is involved).  It’s impossible to know exactly what David or Joel have in mind, so I’m just going to wait and see rather than speculate.  As you know, regardless of whether Rob is involved or not, it’s a David Michôd film so I’m in.
