Robert Pattinson's Interview With ComingSoon.Net – SPOILERS   Leave a comment

Robert Pattinson’s instantaneous and often overwhelming star power is fantastic for the moment. But what happens when “The Twilight Saga” comes to a close and his herds of adoring fans find another up and comer to fawn over? If Pattinson has anything to do with it, he’ll have moved on from simply being a Hollywood heartthrob and have established himself as a reputable actor. Not only does Remember Me provide him with the opportunity to be remembered long after his claim to fame has come and gone, but it allows him to deliver a similarly important concept to moviegoers: the value of moving on but never forgetting.

Pattinson stars as Tyler, an NYU student struggling with a vast amount of demons he’s not quite sure really exist. It’s fortunate that Pattinson can’t relate to his character in two respects: he didn’t have a troubled youth and that disconnect made the role much more intriguing to tackle. During a roundtable interview he explained, “All the people who I’ve met who are troubled teenagers, you meet their family and their family is like, ‘I don’t know what to do. He’s just – I have no idea what his problem is.'” Tyler definitely has problems to work out, but a recent family tragedy further exacerbates the situation causing him to get unnecessarily heated and even violent.

Spoilers after the jump!

ComingSoon.net had a chance to sit down with Coulter to talk about his second movie. Unfortunately, there’s one aspect of the movie we really wanted to discuss with him, but even knowing about it before seeing the movie really takes away from its impact. Even so, here is what we ended up talking about with the director in our exclusive video interview:

* How he ended up with the script and why he decided to make it his second film
* The fact that the movie’s based on an original screenplay rather than adapted from a book
* How hard was it to convince financiers and a studio to back the film
* Getting Robert Pattinson on board and how that helped with financing
* Whether or not he considered casting New York actors for the roles
* How he was surprised to learn Emilie de Ravin was Australian
* How he wanted to approach the movie compared to “Hollywoodland”
* Talking about creating some of the settings for the story
* He talks about his next project, directing an episode of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”
