The Rover (2014) Poster



Jump to: Spoilers (3)
David Michôd wrote the character of Eric specifically for Guy Pearce.
Eric's haircut was Guy Pierce's idea.
The scene, which involves Rey (Robert Pattinson) listening to the song "Pretty Girl Rock" by Keri Hilson, is a joke by the director to remind the audience of how pretty Pattinson used to look in the Twilight films.
The film was originally going to be written by both David Michôd and Joel Edgerton for Edgerton's brother, Nash, to direct it.
In an interview with Robert Pattinson, Director David Michôd asked him to watch the documentary "Bully" (2011) to better understand and prepare for the character Rey.
Parts of The Rover were filmed in the outback town of Marree in South Australia.

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Though the credits list Guy Pearce's character's name as Eric, he is neither called by anyone nor presents himself as Eric.
The film's title, "The Rover," gives a big hint as to why Guy Pearce's character wants his car back so much. Rover is a term for dog.
Body count: 15 (without counting the dog). And if the story presented by Eric about killing his wife and her lover was true, the number goes to 17. Most of all the deaths are caused by Eric.
