According to Fotogramas (Spain) reporting on Taron Edgerton replacing Rob in “The Stars at Noon”:

Robert Pattinson’s complex agenda has separated the actor from ‘ Stars at Noon ‘, the film in which he was to return to work under Claire Denis after their meeting in ‘ High Life ‘ (2018).

With ‘ The Batman ‘ (Matt Reeves, 2022) in his closest calendar, and the announced ‘ Idol’s Eye ‘ (Olivier Assayas, 2022) in the queue, the interpreter has had to abandon the project

Rob did mention back in 2017 that Oliver Assayas and he kept in contact about this project. I doubt he dropped out of Claire Denis’ film because of this – it’s probably due to a lot of conflicting schedules at the moment. However, the financier’s Fyzz Facility still have their dedicated Idol’s Eye page (albeit it appears to not have been updated since 2018) and Oliver Assayas’ IMDbPro page has the film still listed as “script as at 5 June 2017”. Assayas did say that he had an offer to make it in the summer of 2018, but that he wanted to film Wasp Network first (which he has done) and that he could possibly shoot in 2019. We all know what happened since 2019 to push back a lot of films so who knows.

Cinemania reported last Thursday on a story about Sly Stallone:

“If in terms of confirmed projects Stallone has a lot of work ahead of him, those that are yet to be confirmed look even better. The actor sounded at the time for Idol’s Eye, a project by Olivier Assayas ( Personal Shopper ) in which Robert Pattinson and Rachel Weisz were also involved.”

Selfishly as much as I love Rob working with Denis, the storyline for Idol’s Eye intrigues me more. If I had to choose between Rob being a dirtbag who spends more time in bed with Qualley’s character against Rob being a scumbag with a 70s pornstache – the latter will win for me every time. I know people will say he’s already done this with Connie in Good Time, but John Mendell was a real jewel thief and well Rob might want to put his spin on him. I’m keeping my eye on this (no pun intended).

Robert Pattinson (or anyone) no longer attached to The Trap or Idol’s Eye


It should come as no surprise (and I know a relief to some), but Harmony Korine’s “The Trap” and Olivier Assayas “Idol’s Eye” have finally been removed from Rob’s IMDbPro page. I know that Rob has previously said that he’s in touch with Assayas on that project, but perhaps he’s now decided to not be involved because maybe we’re about to get news of a new project … hmmm

Idol’s Eye might be filmed in 2019 – but will Robert Pattinson still be on board?

 image host

Will he won’t he – we’ve been strung along for quite some time.  Truthfully I’d like to see Rob in a film with Sly Stallone and Rachel Weisz, but the question is – will all three still be available if and when Idol’s Eye gets filmed.  We know new financiers have come on board.  Nick Newman of The Film Stage recently spoke to Oliver Assayas and this is what he had to say about the film:

You have Non-Fiction next, but there’s already word you’re developing another title.

Wasp Network. It’s the story of the Cuban Five, who were Cuban spies in Miami in the early ‘90s. That, I think, will be my next film. Most of it will be in Spanish.

And Idol’s Eye?

Idol’s Eye can happen; it still can happen. I actually had an offer to make it this summer, and I’ve written Wasp Network; I want to do Wasp Network first. If the offer is still around, I will do it next year.

2019 it is then … maybe.  Guess I’ll just add this article to the myriad of articles speculating filming on our Idol’s Eye dedicated page.

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.

Robert Pattinson Idol’s Eye could be back on for 2018

image host

Robert did mention to Indiewire recently that he’s in contact with Olivier Assayas every few months about the status of this film.  The Fyzz Facility has a dedicated “Idol’s Eye” page which shows “2018” and “development”.  They are also credited as financiers and it’s good to see that Sylvester Stallone seems to still be attached (even on IMDbPro).  I guess time will tell.  I really do want to see 70s Rob.

Robert Pattinson talks about upcoming projects, directors and more with IndieWire


Rob sure does like working with “Mia’s”.  Also, I’m probably in the minority but I am still holding out hope for “Idol’s Eye”.  Indiewire spoke to Rob whilst he was at the Savannah Film Festival for the Maverick Award and had some insight from Rob in relation to this upcoming films and collaborations. I noticed he didn’t mention Joanna Hogg, but I’m with Rob about hoping “The Devil All The Time” happens because it’s one of my favourite reads this year – quirky fabulous book:

Clair Denis’ Sci-Fi Project “High Life”: “It’s definitely nuts,” said Pattinson. “I just finished it last week. [Denis] is incredible. I’m not just saying that, she’s like one of the most fascinating people to work for. I was saying to her at the end of the shoot, she’s the most authentic punk that I’ve even met in my life. Just someone who can control a set. She’s so tiny, and to me she’s the most definitive auteur I’ve ever worked with as well. There’s disparate elements of the [‘High Life’] story. It’s just all over the place and I can’t waiting to see how she finds the throughline of everything, because it’s insane.”

The Zellner Brothers’ “Damsel”: “It’s got that same kind of ‘Kumiko [the Treasure Hunter]’ tone. It’s a funny movie I think, well I hope, I haven’t seen the final movie. I thought the script was very funny. It’s a very, very odd – ostensibly a western, but it’s like a feminist western comedy.”

Antonio Campos’ “The Devil All the Time”: “It’s got a really fun part in it. I hope it’s going to happen, I think it will. I love Antonio, I’m sort of friends with him as well and I think Mia Goth [“Cure for Wellness,” “Nymphomaniac”] will be in it, and she’s excited about it as well.”

Olivier Assayas’ heist film “Idol’s Eye”: “Every few months it kind of reappears again, but I think it’s happening with [Sylvester] Stallone, which is cool. I’m still always talking to them and seeing what’s going to happen, but I love Olivier.

Ciro Guerra’s “Waiting For the Barbarians”: “I saw ‘Embrace the Serpent’ that last day it played at the Sunshine in New York and the matinee was packed. I just knew Ciro Guerra’s next film was going to be amazing. I’m going to do ‘Waiting for the Barbarians’ with Mark Rylance.”
