Around The World With THE ROVER: Robert Pattinson Flick Gets Distro
It’s a simple fact that David Michôd is not yet a household name. It’s another simple fact that if Robert Pattinson’s name was any more household, I could se it to wash my dishes. While we at the Complex are doing everything in our admittedly meager power to make Michôd a name the world will revere, it is yet another simple fact that joining his name to Pattinson’s has much more of a chance of making that happen.
And thus, we have more news about The Rover, Michôd’s next film, which also features Robert Pattinson. As we reported earlier in the month, The Rover is set in the not-too-distant future, and a man is pushed too far when a gang of thugs steals his car and he is forced to hunt them down. And today, the news has come from Cannes that film distributors FilmNation will be getting the flick into U.S. theaters as well as those in most of the rest of the world. So we can rest a bit easier: David Michôd’s impending world domination is that much more assured.
The synopsis reported in Deadline seems careful not to name names, but again as we reported before, Guy Pearce is slated to star and Robert Pattinson will play one of the car thieves. The synopsis in today’s press release does mention that Eric, Pearce’s character, enlists the help of a character named Reynolds, “the naïve simpleton member of the gang left behind in the bloody chaos of the gang’s most recent escape.”
Now I don’t want us to get ahead of ourselves, but I’d be very, very interested in seeing Pattinson sink his teeth into that particular role. If the buzz on his work in the forthcoming Cosmopolis is at all accurate, Bob does some pretty convincing pretend-time playing a character other than the romantic leads he’s made his name with. And to play a character that also goes against type in The Rover could have similar, exciting results. Like I say, this is pure conjecture on my part, but if anybody can help Pattinson pull it off, it’s David Michôd.
Stay tuned to this channel for any and all further Rover developments.
