The Rover gets US Distribution   2 comments

Robert Pattinson’s ‘The Rover’ acquiered by A24


From THR

A24 has acquired U.S. rights to David Michod’s thriller The Rover, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.

Set in a futuristic version of Australia following an economic collapse, the film follows Pearce, who plays a loner traveling the outback, who teams up with Pattinson to track a gang of thieves.

Michod, who wrote and directed 2010’s Animal Kingdom, also wrote The Rover based on a story he and Joel Edgerton conceived. It was produced by Michod, Liz Watts for Porchlight Film and David Linde under his Lava Bear Films banner.

The film co-stars Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones and Susan Prior. Natsha Braier served as director of photography and Jo Ford, who also collaborated with Michod on Animal Kingdom, was production designer.

A24 will release The Rover theatrically in the U.S., while Village Roadshow will release it in Australia and New Zealand. The film’s investment partners include Screen Australia, the South Australian Film Corporation and Screen NSW, and financial partners Fulcrum Media and the Union Bank.

”A24 is a perfect fit for The Rover — a young, innovative and exciting company at the cutting edge of the independent sector in the US, they have contributed to an already exciting array of global distribution partners, and we are pleased to be partnering with them on the future release of the film,” producers Watts and Linde said.

A24 is currently distributing Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and will open James Ponsoldt’s The Spectacular Now on Aug. 2.
A24 negotiated the deal with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers and FilmNation Entertainment. UTA also reps Michod. Prior to selling the U.S. rights to A24, FilmNation Entertainment licensed the film to a majority of territories worldwide based on showing a two-minute reel of footage from the film.

Robert Pattinson on Complex list ‘The 25 Best Actors in their 20s’   1 comment

From Complex:

The roster of active young Hollywood hopefuls is endless, so as an actor, how do you distinguish yourself from the your? Simple: talent. It takes more than a pretty face and the ability to deliver a line to be the next George Clooney or Brad Pitt or Denzel Washington. To make it past a a string of CW shows and/or acne commercials, it takes actual skill, palpable charisma, and the proverbial X factor. If you want to know what that looks like, just check out these young performers: The 25 Best Actors in their 20s.

Robert Pattinson


 Age: 27

Notable Role: Eric Packer in Cosmopolis (2012)

The actor who became famous for portraying a sparkly vampire is so much more than just the pretty face on your little sister’s Teen Bop magazine. As his icy work in Cronenberg’s adaption of Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis demonstrated, Pattinson is a talented actor, and more than capable of carrying a film. While the world was distracted by his romantic life, Pattinson was busy sharpening his skills in more respectable films such Little Ashes and Bel Ami. He is currently working on smaller independent projects.
