Olivier Assayas Says Robert Pattinson Will Feature In His Next Film

Olivier Assayas Says Robert Pattinson Will Feature In His Next Film

For his post-“Twilight” career, Robert Pattinson has been quickly racing to establish himself as an actor instead of a heartthrob, using his cachet join a variety of projects with auteurs at the helm. He’s got two David Cronenberg movies under his belt, another with David Michod, and more coming from Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. And that’s not to mention a possible project with Harmony Korine, and if all goes according to plan, he’ll kick off 2015 working with James Gray on “The Lost City Of Z.” And that’s not all.

With his “Clouds Of Sils Maria” getting set to unspool at the Cannes Film Festival, director Olivier Assayas has revealed he’s caught the RPatz fever. “I see that in the United States, especially since the success of ‘l’Heure d’été‘ and ‘Carlos,’ I gained a relative notoriety, which sharpens the curiosity of some actors. My next film, for example, will include Robert Pattinson,” he told Les InRocks (translation via Robsessed). 

So what will the film be? No idea. And that’s about all the news there is on it. But it should be noted that last year, the director did line up a U.S. project, titled “Hubris,” that would be in English and feature an American cast. It’s based on a 2007 Playboy article called “Boosting The Big Tuna” by Hillel Levin and follows a group of small-time thieves who rob a man who turns out to be Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo. Could this be that gig? 

Guess we’ll have to be patient and wait to find out. But it looks like Pattinson continues to attract some very interesting collaborators.

Duh, Clouds of Sils Maria is Kristen Stewarts movie. The writer needs to get his/her facts straight!

From what this article says, it seems that RPatz caught the Assayas fever and not the other way around.

Robert owes A LOT to Kristen Stewart in helping further his career. She is the one who insisted he be hired for Twilight. Remember at one point he was living at his agent's sleeping on a couch. Robert should be thanking Kristen and everyone needs to stop the hating. Robert and Kristen FOREVER!

Last year, Robert Pattinson talked about the book, The Professionals, he liked to be adapted on screen. A small group of ex-students who can't find a job kidnap men and ask an acceptable ransom in the hope to become rich after a couple of years. Everything goes well until they kidnap the wrong man, a maffiosi.
It's a similar story so I believe Rob would be interested in making this film with Assayas.
Btw he has never hided the fact that he would do everything possible to bring the indie films under the attention of a broader public.

Was Hubris set up with Todd Field or Michael Mann before? Either way, Assayas is another (obviously) great director that this project has … I'm impressed by Pattinson's choices — he could become a Pitt … it took Pitt a little while to find his non-hearththrob feet, but he was trying with interesting directors and eventually did. Anyone that assists to bankroll films for Cronenberg, Gray, Herzog and Assayas I'm gonna give a chance … and I loved Cosmopolis.

Pattinson has an excellent reputation within the industry, so it's no surprise to me that these respected directors want to work with him. Pattinson's also a tireless promoter of his films, so they know they can depend on him to go the extra mile and represent their work in the best light.

Hubris definitely sounds interesting.
