Hope none experienced a heat stroke while filming, PEI. I commend everyone involved in this film who braved the sweltering heat.

From  The Sunday Morning Herald

‘It’s very odd,” Robert Pattinson says. ”There’s something strange and disturbing about the whole relationship.”

The Twilight actor is talking about the two characters at the heart of his new film, The Rover, which finished shooting on Saturday in outback South Australia.

He plays a young man, Rey, caught up in an uneasy, dangerous alliance with a stranger, Eric (Guy Pearce), in a not-too-distant future.

The Rover is the much-anticipated new film from David Michod, the writer-director of Animal Kingdom. The title refers to Pearce’s character: damaged, solitary, utterly without hope.

Pattinson has been casting his net widely since his lead role in the wildly successful Twilight movies brought him celebrity and a certain amount of paparazzi attention. He’s quick and sometimes self-deprecating, and has a surprisingly hearty laugh. Looking for roles post-Twilight, he says, ”I don’t know if I’m necessarily any good at sculpting a career or anything. But I know what I want to do.”

He wanted to be part of The Rover because ”it was an original script and it was one of those parts where you read it and you think, ‘I’d love to do this, but I know I’m never going to get it.”’. There, ”already self-defeating before I’ve even started”, he says.

In this film, he’s a long way from the debonair 19th-century Frenchman of Bel Ami or the New York billionaire of Cosmopolis, two of his recent roles. The near-future that Rey inhabits has a broken-down, improvised, desperate feel, and Pattinson’s appearance is in keeping: unkempt and unshaven, with make-up that discolours his teeth.

Rey is an American who has come to Australia with his brother. He is, Pattinson says, ”the kind of person who has been brought up to believe they’re incapable of living independently. Someone has always been looking after him.” When he’s separated from his brother, ”almost the first person that comes along, he grabs them. It doesn’t matter how he gets treated”. And Eric treats him very badly at first.

The Rover was shot over seven weeks, ending with more than a fortnight in the remote small town of Marree, 685 kilometres north of Adelaide, whose population of 90 more than doubled with the presence of the movie crew. Almost every part of Marree has been incorporated into the world of the movie. The filmmakers said it felt like their own Hollywood studio backlot.

The Rover takes place ”in an unspecified relatively near future, after a number of years of quite seriously steady Western economic decline,” Michod says. ”It’s not post-apocalypse. This is an Australia that has broken down into a kind of resource-rich Third World country.”

He did not start with the idea of this near-future, but with the enigmatic, shifting relationship between the two central characters. He wrote the role of Eric for Pearce, but did not start thinking about Pattinson until they met in Los Angeles.
He had not – and still has not – seen any of the Twilight films, but had been told that Pattinson was interesting. He found Pattinson was ”really smart, and not the sort of pretty boy I was expecting. As soon as it was time to start testing… he was my first choice, by a long way.”

From The Daily Telegraph:

But Robert Pattinson has channelled the physical discomfort of his seven-week summer shoot in the middle of the Aussie Outback into a character he hopes will make an equally indelible impression as the Twilight vampire.

“It’s added lots to the performance – being covered in dirt, pouring sweat, with tons of flies around. You lose your inhibitions quite quickly,” the English star said on the set of his latest film, The Rover, in which he sports a crude DIY haircut and badly-decayed teeth.

A neo-western set in a brutal, anarchic near future, the $12 million film is director David Michod’s hotly anticipated follow-up to the internationally acclaimed Animal Kingdom.

Guy Pearce plays the title character, an embittered outsider with whom Pattinson’s naive victim forms an uneasy alliance.

Marree, population 90, is about as far from Hollywood as an actor can get.

“That’s good in some ways,” Pattinson says. “You definitely end up making a different movie. Being in the desert has a funny effect. It does change you in a way.”

Pattinson confirmed his participation in three upcoming projects: Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert with Naomi Watts and Jude Law; Maps to the Stars, a comedy directed by David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis); and Hold Onto Into Me with Carey Mulligan.

More new quotes from Courier Mail (the article is slightly different -the last part- from The Telegraph one)

Edward Cullen wouldn’t last five minutes in the baking heat of Marree, a one-pub town 650km north of Adelaide.

But Robert Pattinson has channelled the physical discomfort of his seven-week, summer shoot in the middle of the Australian Outback into a character that he hopes will make an equally indelible impression as the Twilight vampire.

Located at the intersection of the Oodnadatta and Birdsville Tracks, Marree, population 90, is about far from Hollywood as an actor can get.

“That’s good in some ways,’’ says Pattinson. “You definitely end up making a different movie. Being in the desert has a funny effect. It does change you in a way.”

Pattinson, whose on-again, off-again relationship with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart has been a matter of much conjecture, admits the different time zones and lack of mobile phone reception have taken a toll on his private life.

Filming on The Rover, which has spent time on location in Hammond, Quorn, Copley, and Leigh Creek, wrapped yesterday.

Pattinson said he was intending to take the next three weeks off, but confirmed his participation in three upcoming projects: Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert, with Naomi Watts and Jude Law; Maps to the Stars, a comedy directed by David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis), and Hold Onto Into Me, with Carey Mulligan.

Possible New “Posh” Part For Robert Pattinson?

Posted by Kirsty at 10:36 Mar152013

When it opened at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2010, “Posh” helped to give a real boost to the careers of its young cast, with actors including Kit Harington (“Game Of Thrones”), Joshua McGuire (“The Hour”), Tom Mison (the upcoming “Sleepy Hollow” TV series) and David Dawson (“Luther”) all having gone on to great things after the fact. “An Education” director Lone Scherfig signed on to a film adaptation recently, and it looks like we might be seeing a movie cast that’s just as broad in talent, with a few rising names, and one massive one, apparently in various stages of talks to come on board.

According to the ever-on-the-money Baz Bamigboye, Max Irons, Sam Claflin and Douglas Booth are all in negotiations to star in the film, and while talks are at an earlier stage, “Twilight” megastar Robert Pattinson could potentially join them. Nurse, my ovaries! If the first three names don’t quite ring a bell yet, Irons is the son of legendary actor Jeremy Irons, who previously appeared in “Red Riding Hood,” and has “The Host” coming up shortly. Claflin has a couple of blockbusters under his belt already, with “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Snow White & The Huntsman,” and has “The Hunger Games; Catching Fire” coming up later and the year. And Booth, who was one of our Actors On The Rise picks earlier in the week, starred in the TV version of “Great Expectations” recently, and has “Romeo & Juliet” and the Wachowski’s “Jupiter Ascending” on the way.

The play, and the film, revolves around a version of the Bullingdon Club, an Oxford University institution (not unlike a fraternity) which included current Prime Minister David Cameron and current Mayor of London Boris Johnson among its members, and which involves privileged idiots getting together, drinking themselves into oblivion and trashing restaurants. Wade’s play focuses on the members of the Riot Club, whose meeting in a country pub ends in tragedy, and we can see all four of the actors fitting in nicely into that kind of environment.

It sounds like Pattinson’s involvement is the least concrete; he’s still filming David Michod’s “The Rover,” and he has David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” and James Marsh’s “Hold On To Me” nominally on his slate, though lord knows what state they’re in in terms of financing. But a good piece of material, amid a strong ensemble, would be a smart move for the actor as he continues to try to escape the shadow of Edward Cullen. As Bamigboye suggests, the challenge here is going to be scheduling; the nature of the piece requires the cast to all be together round a dining table for much of the shoot, and all these guys are busy and in demand, so don’t be surprise if there’s mixing and matching with who sticks with the project. Filming is planned to get underway in May, so it shouldn’t be too long before we find out who’s able to fit it into their schedules, and “Posh” should eventually open in 2014.
