Robert Pattinson Teams with Another Auteur: Claire Denis

27 August 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Robert Pattinson will take the lead role of an extraterrestrial astronaut in Claire Denis' upcoming sci-fi film, Screen Daily reports. The yet-to-be-titled film, set in outer space, is being written by Denis, British novelist Zadie Smith and Smith's writer husband Nick Laird. Based on an idea by Denis and her longtime writing partner Jean-Pol Fargeau, the film's plot remains under wraps "but it is known to take place beyond the solar system in a ‘future that seems like the present’." This is the latest idiosyncratic casting choice from Pattinson, who's also starring in Harmony Korine's Miami-set revenge thriller, "The Trap," and he will next be seen in Anton Corbijn's 1950s Americana ode "Life" as James Dean's friend and photographer Dennis Stock.

Robert Pattinson Set To Lead Claire Denis’ English-Language Sci-Fi Movie

26 August 2015 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arthouse favorite Claire Denis looks set to send Robert Pattinson beyond the reaches of our solar system for her first English-language film, after Screen Daily today confirmed that the actor is attached to topline the nascent sci-fi picture.

Taking place in “a future that seems like the present,” Denis’ as-yet-untitled project is still very much in the early stages of development. Not only will the move mark her English directorial debut, but the science fiction piece represents the French director’s first stab at a screenwriting gig, after penning the script alongside Zadie Smith and her husband, Nick Laird.

Parisian production company Alcatraz Film broke the news of Robert Pattinson’s casting, revealing that the studio is “very proud and very happy, as is Claire, about what will be a great collaboration. Robert is committed to the project and we are committed to him.”

Robert Pattinson Starring In Claire Denis' Latest

26 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

She’s now locked in a star, with Robert Pattinson confirmed for a lead role.The script comes from White Teeth author Zadie Smith and her husband Nick Laird, though the specifics of the idea (conceived by Denis and regular writing partner Jean-Pol Fargeau) are being held back for now.

Robert Pattinson to Read Zadie Smith’s Words for Claire Denis

26 August 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Since the final Twilight film opened in 2012, Robert Pattinson has found consistent work in artier fare, taking roles in David Cronenberg's stoic adaptation of Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis (2012), The Rover (2014), Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars (2014), the upcoming Dennis Stock and James Dean biopic Life, and as T.E. Lawrence in Werner Herzog's upcoming Queen of the Desert. Pattinson will continue on that path, taking the lead role in acclaimed French director Claire Denis's first English-language film, penned by Denis, Zadie Smith, and Smith's husband, Nick Laird. Pattinson will play an astronaut, according to Screen Daily, in the sci-fi film that takes place in a "future that seems like the present." Denis, an art-house auteur known for her slow, elliptical narratives and stygian tones, has played with genre films before, notably her brilliant pseudo-vampire film Trouble Every Day and last year's relentlessly cryptic Bastards, so there's no telling how Denis defines "science-fiction. »

Hathaway, Pattinson Plan Sci-Fi Projects

26 August 2015 6:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Anne Hathaway is attached to star in and produce the female-centric sci-fi action comedy "The Shower" which had its script by Jac Schaeffer appear on last year's Blacklist.

Said to be in line with the tone of "This is the End" and "Attack the Block," the story follows the female guests of a baby shower when a nearby meteor storm threatens to unleash blood-hungry aliens upon the world - and only these women can stop them.

Hathaway, Schaeffer, Adam Shulman, Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim will produce the project which will seek a director and actors before taking it to financiers or studios.

Meanwhile, "Twilight" series star Robert Pattinson is confirmed to have scored a lead role in a new untitled science fiction project by filmmaker Claire Denis ("Beau Travail") in a project that marks her English-language debut.

Zadie Smith and Nick Laird penned the script which will take place »

Screen Daily reports that Robert Pattinson will lead the untitled project. Denis, Smith, and Nick Laird are all writing the script, about which the details are being kept under wraps. All that is known is that Pattinson will play an astronaut in a story set "beyond the solar system in a ‘future that seems like the present.’ " So yes, this sounds awesome.
