Robert Pattinson
Actor
Following David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, R-Patz continues to hedge his bets. In Cannes, he combined auteur film Maps to the Stars (Cronenberg again) with action thriller The Rover. The role that could make or break the boy from Barnes (who is now dating singer FKA twigs) as a serious actor — Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert, in which he plays TE Lawrence to Nicole Kidman’s Gertrude Bell — is still in post.

“This is a steely, chillingly topical adaptation of Don DeLillo’s satirical novel about Eric Parker, a young billionaire fund manager who spends a day being ferried across midtown New York to visit his hairdresser. At the same time, he watches his personal and business fortunes go up in smoke due to the unexpected rise of the yuan; a crucial irregularity that Packer failed to spot.

“As Packer’s journey slowly progresses he meets friends, business associates and his young wife Elise (Sarah Gadon). A doctor gives Packer his daily check-up in the back of the car, which involves a rather intimate personal examination. “You have an asymmetrical prostate,” he says, and Packer looks perplexed.

“This goads Packer into a kind of nihilistic audit of his own psyche, and later his body, testing himself as he would a financial market; finding its limits, looking for patterns, guarding against irregularities. Much of the action takes place in the limousine itself, which Cronenberg styles the car as a kind of airtight cocoon that glides silently through the city and is run from a bank of blue-glowing, Star Trek panels.

“Inside, Packer can access everything he needs: market data, food, alcohol, sex, a toilet. No exterior noise makes its way in, even when at one point he is caught up in an anticapitalist protest, and a giant, Chinese dragon-like rat puppet starts buffeting the limo. The mob hammers silently on the windows, and Packer sips another vodka. It’s a smart inversion of Cronenberg’s 1999 film eXistenZ: rather than being umbilically connected to a virtual world, Packer is hermetically sealed off from the real one. ” – The Daily Telegraph

The deal is that if I’m directing, I have complete control, and that’s something I wouldn’t have if I was doing a studio film, but it’s something I’m very used to as an independent filmmaker. The financing is hell, but once you’re on the set it’s great because you have complete control. I mean, when I was doing Cosmopolis, Rob Pattinson said to me, “I’ve never seen this before.” I said, “Seen what?” He says, “You make all the decisions right here on the spot and then carry them out.” And I just said, “Rob, it’s just you and me making this film, no one else.”

[…]

There’s something interesting in the casting of Maps to the Stars in that respect, because you have people like Julianne Moore and John Cusack, who have done every kind of film there ever could be at every level of budget possible, and you have people like Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson, who are on their way to becoming those same kinds of actors. With this film, how much were the actors able to relate their own experiences to you, and how did their experiences inform the direction of the film?

DC: Well, it’s not so much a discussion, but it always did come out that they experienced that. Mia and Rob have done a lot of movies, and especially Rob has done a franchise with all the big studio craziness that goes along with that. He’s kind of seen the worst of this, and they all knew the reality of it all.

Really, I don’t have those discussions unless I see something going wrong. These actors were all right there. The only thing I said to them – and I said that to all of them – was, “Don’t worry about satire or humour or exaggeration or anything else. Those things in the script will take care of themselves. You must play this absolutely real to the emotional level that is there. Everything else will be fine if we all do that.” You have to get your actors into the same movie, basically, and that’s all I have to say to them. And they just knew and I never had to have that discussion that you’re saying because they just naturally brought their own experiences and understanding of the characters immediately. I never had to tweak or fine tune them. When we’re choreographing a scene, that’s when we’re really collaborating the most, and that’s where they contribute the most by talking about how they move through a scene. They’re all so accurate. I was only doing one or two takes for everything. They just all got it immediately.

But what you’re saying is true. Rob is playing probably the most naive character in the movie, and Mia’s also naive, but only to the Hollywood side of things and not the family craziness. They’re not movie people. They aspire to it, but they’re not in it yet, and that just comes naturally from the characters.

Chanel-J12-Robert-Pattinson-Cosmopolis

Watch-ID.com reports,

In the movie Cosmopolis, the main character Eric Packer, played by Robert Pattinson, wears a Chanel J12 Chromatic Classic Automatic 41mm H2934 watch.

Throughout the film, Robert Pattinson wears only one outfit: a black two-button notch-lapel Signoria suit by Gucci, a Gucci fitted white cotton shirt, a slim black silk tie, a leather belt with silver buckle detail and black leather lace-up dress shoes, all from Gucci. The Chanel watch is a nice addition to this stylish outfit.

The Chanel J12 Chromatic Classic is made from titanium ceramic, a new material that is highly scratch-resistant and has a hardness close to that of sapphire. Its unique color and sparkle are obtained by adding titanium to ceramic and then polishing with diamond powder. The watch comes in three sizes, 33mm (ref nr H2978), 38mm (ref nr H2979) and the 41mm (ref nr H2934) which is seen in the film.

The Chanel J12 Chromatic retail price is approximately $7000, but can be found on for example eBay for $5395. Versions with diamonds on the bezel can also be found and cost more than $14,000. Make sure you order the right size for your wrist.

David is friends with Martin Amis and nearly adapted one of his books..cool!

* One of Rob’s favorite books is “Money” by Martin Amis.

Re MTTS US release: “they’ll do a qualifying run, probably in LA and New York, because the pressure on them is huge.”

David mentioned Rob 3 times last night (Julianne twice) so I’m taking that as a sign!

New York Film Fest: David Cronenberg Has “No Problem Ignoring” Robert Pattinson’s ‘Twilight’ Past

What advice would Julianne Moore, also part of Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars’ cast, give her franchise-film co-stars?

David Cronenberg’s Hollywood-centered family melodrama Maps to the Stars marks the veteran director’s second straight film with Twilight alum Robert Pattinson after 2012’s Cosmopolis.

Although many still see Pattinson as vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen, Cronenberg told The Hollywood Reporter he could easily look past that.

“I have no problem ignoring that,” the director said of Pattinson’s Twilight past. “Of course I watched the first Twilight movie just to see what he was like and get a feel for his screen presence and so on and so on…by the time you’re on the set, it’s just the two of you making movies. You forget your own movies too.”

Speaking to THR ahead of Saturday night’s New York Film Festival screening of Maps, Cronenberg explained that he wanted to work with Pattinson (who wasn’t in attendance at the New York event) on this movie not only because the director thinks of him as “a wonderful actor” and they “had a good time on Cosmopolis” but also because it provided the opportunity for Pattinson to participate in the sort of ensemble film he’d told Cronenberg he wanted to do.

“He told me that he was scared about Cosmopolis because he had not really wanted to do a movie where he was the lead and had the whole movie on his shoulders,” the director explained. “And of course in that movie he’s in almost every scene. He said, ‘One day I’d love to do an ensemble piece where there are a lot of good actors and [he’s] just one of them.'”

When Cronenberg was putting together Maps, he thought of his Cosmopolis star.

In Maps, Pattinson plays a limo driver/aspiring screenwriter who forms a connection with a mysterious young woman played by Mia Wasikowska, who arrives in L.A. from Florida and ends up working for Julianne Moore’s diva actress.

Pattinson and Wasikowska’s characters’ conversations provide insight into the world of Hollywood outsiders striving to become insiders.

Indeed screenwriter Bruce Wagner said he thought having a character who’s a limo driver, and his own experience doing that job for a number of years, offered a good way in to the Hollywood-centric story.

“I found it’s a great window in to a narrative because it’s someone who’s indifferent in a way and yet his job is to shepherd those who have great wealth or fame and yet he is kind of invisible in a sense,” the writer told THR. “In that way it was a great narrative tool for me. Being a limousine driver was a way in to story with a capital ‘S’.”

Pattinson’s work with Cronenberg is just part of his attempt to distance himself from the Summit vampire franchise through more serious, challenging roles, including parts in June’s The Rover, Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert and an upcoming collaboration with Harmony Korine.

Moore said that despite working with Pattinson and the Hunger Games cast, with her role in the upcoming Mockingjay installments, she doesn’t have any advice for her younger co-stars.

“I don’t think any of those actors need my advice,” she told THR. “They all have wonderful careers and are magnificent actors and they’ve made really interesting creative choices. “
