‘Maps To The Stars’ TIFF Portrait of Robert Pattinson and Julienne Moore now in UHQ
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The streaming giant has acquired North American rights to the film, which is set in the Brazilian rain forest.
Welcome to the jungle, Amazon.
The streaming giant is in final negotiations to acquire North American rights to the Charlie Hunnam drama The Lost City of Z, set in the Brazilian rain forest.
The film, which also stars Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller, is directed by James Gray and produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B.
The project, based on David Grann’s best-selling book of the same name, was originally set up at Paramount, where Pitt has a first-look deal. But the studio stalled on getting the drama off the ground, and Gray took back the rights and assembled independent financing from MICA Entertainment.
Set in 1925, the true-life drama centers on British explorer Col. Percival Fawcett (Hunnam), who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon.
CAA, which reps Hunnam, Gray and Pitt, brokered the deal for the film, which adds a big-budget epic to Amazon’s portfolio.
Sierra/Affinity handled international sales at the European Film Market and will continue to sell remaining territories at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. With Lost City of Z going to Amazon on the eve of TIFF, there will be heightened interest from buyers for another Hunnam film, Papillon, which also is being shopped at the market.
Lost City of Z’s landing at Amazon provides a final dramatic twist for the long-gestating project, which was originally developed as a Pitt starring vehicle. Benedict Cumberbatch also was previously set to star but bowed out to headline Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie.
As with all of its film deals, Amazon partners with traditional distributors to include a theatrical component to its releases, as it did with Woody Allen’s Cafe Society, Nicholas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon and Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship. Likewise, it will partner with a distributor for Lost City of Z at a later date, but insiders say Paramount may re-emerge in that capacity.

Brady Corbert talks about Robert Pattinson’s work ethic and new project for Rob
From Eye for Film:
Given that he feels so strongly about the mythology of fan culture, it’s ironic that he has cast Pattinson in the film, as the actor has built up an ardent following in the years since the Twilight films, with a large number of fan sites dedicated to his work and even the internet-friendly abbreviation RPatz. Corbet says he was interesting in using certain expectations to his advantage.
“It’s really bizarre,” says Corbet “There’s a couple of things. First of all, I’m not that connected to the notion of Rob as a celebrity, because I’ve known him for a long time and I didn’t discover him that way. The other thing is that I thought it would be really, really interesting to have this sort of Janet Leigh in Psycho effect, where you have someone who is a public figure and people have their eye on him, he’s interesting, he’s charismatic, he’s compelling, he’s handsome. And I thought, that it would really give weight to the first 20 minutes of the film. So I hired him for all of those reasons. I hired him because the role was written for a young man that was a bit younger than the female character, handsome and English, so I thought of him.
“Anyone who has spent any time with the guy will know that he’s super hard-working and he never complains. I was just talking to the Safdie brothers, who are directing a new film with him [Good Time], and Josh was like, ‘Dude, we were shooting 19 hour days and he didn’t fucking complain once.’ They were just amazed by his work ethic and so am I. I think he and I will work together for a long time.”
Corbet isn’t sure yet whether Pattinson will feature in his next film Vox Lux yet. “It’s a big cast and it’s an ensemble piece and I have to work out what age everyone is in relationship to each other,” he says, but the British star is working with Corbet’s wife and collaborator Mona Fastvold on her upcoming film The Bleaching Yard.
“It’s a period drama,” says Corbet “The source material is from a very famous Norwegian author called Tarjei Vesaas and she’s set it in a whaling community in the 1940s, which is not in the book. It’s really great. We’re making that with Chris Cohen who produced Childhood as well and her producers from The Sleepwalker. This is the first time as a family that we have made two separate projects.” [My emphasis]
He also says that compared to The Childhood Of A Leader, Vox Lux has been a must swifter project.
