For the former Vampire, six movies out in a couple of years.
The last time we saw him on the big screen was 2012.
The last movies of Robert Pattison: Cosmopolis, Bel Ami and, of course The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part II, date back to that year.
But 2014 and 2015 seem to be the years of the great return of a renewed Pattinson.
The British actor has just finished filming two movies coming out this year.
The first one is the Danish The Rover (here the trailer). Directed and written by David Michôd it is set in the Australian desert in a dangerous and dysfunctional near future. Alongside the former vampire we’ll see the other English actor Guy Pearce (Iron Man 3, The Hurt Locker). The movie will be out in Denmark on April 19th but there isn’t an UK release date yet.
The second one is Maps to the Stars with Julienne Moore, John Cusack, Carrie Fischer and Mia Wasikowska.
Written by Bruce Wagner and directed by David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis, again with Pattinson) the movie tells the story about the Weiss family, an archetypical Hollywood dynasty. The father (John Cusack) is an analyst, the mother Christina (Olivia Williams) spends her time to look after the career of their son Benjie (Evan Bird), a teen star who addicted to the toxic mix, has just come off a rehab program while his sister, Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) has recently been released from a sanatorium where she was treated for criminal pyromania and befriended a limo driver Jerome (Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor.
The Twilight Saga’s star is now filming other two movies.
Queen of the Desert with James Franco, Damian Lewis and Nicole Kidman is the chronicle of Gertrude Bell: a traveler, writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer, and political attaché for the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century.
On Tuesday Pattinson was in Toronto on set of the other movie: Life by Anton Corbijn.
Shaved goatee and black hair , Pattinson plays Life Magazine photographer, Danny Stock, who was assigned to shoot picture of James Dean (Dane DeHaan).
He has been casting alongside to Benedict Cumberbatch for The Lost City of Z (now in pre-production) based on David Grann’s book. The Lost City of Z tells about the 1925 Col. Percival Fawcett adventure into the Amazon to find an ancient civilization, hoping to make one of the most important discoveries in history.
Robert Pattinson has also been announced as part of The Childhood of a Leader cast. The movie, written and directed by Brady Corbet (The Sleepwalker) will see opposite Pattinson actors Tim Roth ( Pulp Fiction) and Juliette Binoche (Chocolat, Cosmopolis).
