ARTICLE: Pattinson excited to work with David Cronenberg


While promoting his current film, Water for Elephants, Robert Pattinson briefly mentioned Cosmopolis with Italian magazine, Donna Moderna. Here is the excerpt with the mention:

What if they asked you to keep playing [Twilight’s Edward]?

“That’s a closed chapter. I’ve just finished filming Bel Ami where I play a cynical, seducer, social-climber. Then I will be the main character in David Cronemberg’s Cosmopolis. I’ll play the role of an American millionaire who, within 24 hours in Manhattan, lives his descent into hell. I still can’t believe I’ll be working with a director like Cronenberg. And I even wanted to quit acting after Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire! Nobody wanted me, while my band was starting to sign its first contracts and earn some money. Then I got offered the role of Salvador Dalì in Little Ashes. After that movie I realized I really liked acting and put music aside.”

    Yes Rob, it’s time for you to start a new chapter in your career. I can’t wait to see you in this new role of unchained naughtiness. LOL

    Did anyone hear the rumor that Rob was OUT as Eric Packer as of yesterday? I KNOW this can’t be true but it freaked me out seeing it in a comment on an E! article. It IS just a rumor, right?

      Oh…that could be confusing. By OUT, I mean that the rumor said Cronenberg has “released” him from the project. CAN’T be true…can’t be.

      • I’ve heard nothing of the sort. Do you have a link to the comment? I wouldn’t mind seeing it in context. *gets out the vodka and pours you a shot* Here you go bb. 😉

      LOL, most probably a rumor invented by one of Rob´s haters, wishing he would not be working with Cronenberg
