Robert Pattinson Goes Grindhouse With ‘Heaven Knows What’ Directors Josh And Benny Safdie’s ‘Good Time’

Robert Pattinson Goes Grindhouse With 'Heaven Knows What' Directors Josh And Benny Safdie's 'Good Time'

There was a mini-hubbub when Robert Pattinson dropped out of the western “Brimstone at the last moment. Whatever the reason he left that flick, he’s yet again signed up to work with auteur talent, and I have to say, the prospect of this one sounds pretty great.

Filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie made waves with their addiction drama “Heaven Knows What” and it has attracted the right attention, with Pattinson signing up for their next film, “Good Time.” Described as a “neo-grindhouse” flick (I’m already halfway sold on that alone), the actor will play Connie, a bank robber to tries to escape as a dragnet beings to draw closer and closer. That premise sounds perfectly like the stuff of B-movies and I’m intrigued to see how the Safdies tackle that kind of material. 

No word on when it might shoot, but presumably it’ll have to wait until Pattinson has wrapped James Gray‘s “Lost City Of Z” which starts shooting later this year. [THR]
