I came across this interview of Benedict from the Philippine Daily Inquirer that has a quick mention of Lost City:

“I don’t suffer from being a workaholic,” he emphasized. Laughing, he said, “At heart, I am incredibly lazy. I love nothing better than to kick back, see friends and family and just go on a few more holidays. I did actually have quite a lot of time at the beginning of this year. I was going to be doing a film, ‘The Lost City of Z’ with (director) James Gray. That was put on hold because of problems with the location. Hopefully, it will start in spring next year.

“The Lost…” is James’ adaptation of David Grann’s bestseller. He will portray Lt. Colonel Percival “Percy” Fawcett, a British artillery officer, archaeologist and explorer who supposedly discovered a mythical city in Brazil’s Amazon jungles in 1925.”

He also mentions Comic-Con in Australia, and as you know, Vertigo and I were fortunate enough to attend and meet Benedict.  Maybe one day I’ll post my photo with him, but for now I’m just going to say Benedict couldn’t stress to us enough what a logistical nightmare this film was going to be.  At the time we met him in May, he said that they were hoping to film in June/July.  He also devastated us because he said “just because Rob has agreed to do the film doesn’t mean Rob’s going to do the film”.   In hindsight I think he was just preparing us for the possibility that this film might take a long time to get off the ground.  So this is why I’m posting the above info, just to keep us in the loop.  Variety earlier this month also mentioned:

“He is currently shooting “The Hollow Crown” for the BBC and Neal Street Productions, in which he plays Richard III for director Dominic Cooper, and alongside Judi Dench.

Next he will shoot “Lost City of Z,” based on David Grann’s novel for director James Gray, where he will play British explorer Percy Fawcett, who set out to discover the City of Z in the Amazon in the 1920s.”

Fingers crossed.

LMAO Rob’s response to what his next film with David Cronenberg will involve.  From the Winnipeg Free Press:

“The Free Press spoke with Pattinson about Round 2 with Cronenberg:

FP: So, again with the limo sex?

RP: Yeah, it’s weird. Apparently, Cosmopolis was just the audition for this one. I’m thinking that’s what I’m going to use as my head shot: me leaning out of the limo window.

FP: David Cronenberg likes to use certain actors, such as Viggo Mortensen and Jeremy Irons, more than once. Do you have to have a certain rapport to be a member of that club?

RP: I think it was just luck at the beginning. I really get on with him. He’s a really nice person, and he’s fun to be around. I did consider that he likes to use the same cast for years and years, so that’s my welfare cheque.

FP: It must be gratifying that he sees you playing roles as different as a solitary, somewhat unhinged billionaire in Cosmopolis and as a hungry Hollywood wannabe in Maps to the Stars.

RP: Very different characters, yes, but both in limos and both in black suits. That’s got to be the through line. I’m thinking in the next one, I’m going to be run over by a limo.

FP: You live in Los Angeles, so do you recognize the reality of this movie?

RP: Definitely. Some of the characters seem to be archetypes, but I’ve met a lot of them. I remember certain scenes, like the scenes with all the young actors when they’re all bitching about each other. That really reminded me of when I first started coming to L.A., before camera phones, when you would go to nightclubs and there would be really famous 15-year-olds and you could see them openly drinking and it was so weird. There was like a different set of rules. But now it’s not the same anymore, because kids in bars get found out immediately. But I remember coming from England and seeing that, because I was still not being let into clubs in England when I was 20 and here, there were kids drinking!

FP: Are you more comfortable in an ensemble as opposed to carrying the movie as in Cosmopolis?

RP: On something like this, there’s obviously a lot less pressure, so I like it a lot. When you don’t have to drive the movie forward, it’s not as hard a decision to make.”
