Did You Know?

Trivia Claire Denis had in mind this project since 2002. She has been carrying it around for many years and thought she would have to abandon it given the financial issues. Denis wrote the film keeping Philip Seymour Hoffman in mind and was deeply saddened by his untimely demise in 2014. Having no other actor in mind for the role, she felt lost about the film. In 2015, Robert Pattinson heard about the project. Being a big cinephile, loving her previous films and wanting to work with Denis, he had been trying to meet her for 4 years since seeing White Material (2009) for the first time in 2010. Denis was intrigued and liked him as an actor, but initially thought Pattinson was too young for the part, given the fact that in the script, the protagonist she imagined was supposed to be in his late 40s. She also found it strange that he had such a strong desire to work with her, she was even afraid to meet him, since she thought it could not be him. But Pattinson would have taken even a supporting role to be in her film and after she met with some other actors, she agreed to see him in L.A. after the casting director pushed her to meet him. There, she realized that he was the right one for the role of Monte, with Pattinson being the only actor who really touched her, stating that, "When I met him, everything changed - he was already in the film. When he asked me, 'Are you sure?' I said, 'It's already too late, it's you or nobody else.' It's so easy to love him - I liked him immediately - what a nice and open man. He was caring so much, you know? He has something very special, such an intriguing and mysterious guy... but he also has like an inner, naked youth. I thought he was going to give me a lot." It took another two years till filming began in fall 2017. See more »
