Robert Pattinson Down Under – THE ROVER Gets Greenlit
We’ve previously written on Criminal Complex about how much we all want to hang out with Robert Pattinson and do human being things, like show each other how to put on cummerbunds and churn butter and stuff.
He’s continuing his hot-streak following one of my most eagerly awaited films, Cosmopolis, and his signing on for so many fantastic sounding crime flicks. And he’s got the clout to get these suckas made, too, which helps.
Now, we’ve previously mentioned The Rover, but it looks like this David Michôd flick is finally green-lit (which means the cops have okayed it to be stabbed in prison) and will start going into production, according to THR. Screen Australia will provide funding for the ‘futuristic western,’ set to star Guy Pierce (star of L.A. Confidential, my dreams) and the aforementioned Pattinson. If that isn’t enough to get you psyched for this one, you should really track down writer/director Michôd’s previous flick, Animal Kingdom, which really is one of the best films of the last decade. Did you watch it? I know, right? I liked all those bits, too. Come hang over when Robert Pattinson comes to my place. Super fun times to ensue. Promise.
In the same article at THR (which may-as-well be titled “Things That Will Interest Liam”), they talk about Screen Australia also awarding funding to Felony, which I’ve previously discussed in the high pitched, excited, and Cheeto-dust stained prose-style I’m come to be avoided for. That flick is written by The Square (also excellent) writer/star Joel Edgerton and to be directed by Noise’s Matthew Saville, about a policeman who accidentally runs over a cycling child and covers it up.
This is a far cry from the Screen Australia of years past that would never fund genre pictures, and only would award money to films that glamourised our country. I’m much happier that they’ve finally realised that we’re scumbags.
