From “Twilight” hunk who couldn’t walk into a corner store without a legion of girls screaming and passing out, to an actor making all the right moves, Robert Pattinson continues to leave his vampire past far behind him. With a re-teaming with David Cronenberg and films with James Gray and Werner Herzog on the horizon, Pattinson continues to be cashing in his Respectable Actor chips and is now set to work again with a famed French actress.
Pattinson is re-teaming with “Cosmopolis” co-star Juliette Binoche for “The Childhood Of A Leader.” Tim Roth rounds out the leading trio in the film co-written by Mona Fastvold and actor Brady Corbert (“Melancholia,” “Simon Killer“) that will tell the story—as you might have guessed from the title—of the childhood of a post-WWI leader. Which one? Don’t ask because for the moment, Variety isn’t saying. That being said, we should know more soon.
Everything is coming together for shooting to start in May overseas, with Corbet making his feature directorial debut. So add this to Pattinson’s growing list of intriguing projects that he has coming down the line.
