Today, Pattinson joined director David Cronenberg at the Apple Store on Regent Street in London for a session of “Meet The Filmmakers.” Robsessed reports that Cronenberg has cast Pattinson in his upcoming “nasty and disturbing” new flick, Maps To The Stars, co-starring Viggo Mortensen. Pattison, according to Cronenberg is “a beautiful actor who often responds to scenes without even realising what he’s doing. That’s why I love him.
“There’s a brilliant script by an author friend of mine called Bruce Wagner,” the Dangerous Method director continued. ”All of his books are fantastic. I tried to get this script off the ground five years ago, but I couldn’t get it made. In a way its like Cosmopolis; it’s a difficult sell. It’s edgy in a nasty, disturbing way.
“It has emotion, but it has a weird emotion like Cosmopolis. It’s hard to make difficult movies. When you have very credible actors who bring a lot of attention like Viggo Mortensen and Robert Pattinson, you think it would be easy to raise 15 million dollars, but it’s not.”
Looks like this is the beginning of a great partnership between Cronenberg and Pattinson!
