“Cosmopolis” star Robert Pattinson is moving from the back seat of a limousine to the front, as “Maps to the Stars,” his next collaboration with director David Cronenberg, has started its 30-day shoot, which runs through August in Toronto and Los Angeles.
Entertainment One and Prospero Pictures are co-financing the Los Angeles-set movie, which stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, Evan Bird and Pattinson.
A contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, story follows the Weiss family, which is led by Stafford (Cusack), a psychotherapist and life coach who made his fortune with self-help books. His wife (Williams) is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Bird), a TV star recently out of drug rehab. Their estranged daughter (Wasikowska) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriended a limo driver (Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor. Read more…
Evidently, we don’t have the video to show you, as Dior jealously guards those images of Rob.
Patince, you will have to wait until September 1st to discover the new movie add in its several formats for television and cinema (20 seconds, 30 seconds, 60 seconds and 1 minute and 30 seconds). But in particular, it’s the online movie that lasts 1 minute and 40 seconds (1 minute and 40 seconds of feast for the eyes) that will delight all Twilight fans. Even the non-fans, for that matter.
What we can tell you (alas, without showing you) is that in this ad, the British actor plays an exuberant, uninhibited, seductive and mysterious young man. In short, a role that suits Pattinson to a T and that he plays with class. He runs through the city, he dances. You can feel that the hero of the Twilight saga enjoyed shooting this movie by the talented Romain Gavras (Costa-Gavras’s son), who already directed several short movies, video clips and tv ads for some fragrances.
What you need to know: the Dior Homme fragrance, a male woodsy and spicy scent that turns out to be elegant and sexy with its heart of amber and iris of Tuscany, seems to have found its perfect representation in Robert Pattinson.
To sum up, bring on September 1st

The Swedish invasion into Hollywood continues. Jesper Ganslandt has been tapped to direct Robert Pattinson in the psychological thriller Mission: Blacklist, about a brilliant young military interrogator who spearheads the capture of Saddam Hussein. Pic is based on the life of soldier-turned-intelligence agent Eric Maddox, who funneled his experiences into the 2008 nonfic book Mission: Black List #1 – The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein – As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture. The Code Entertainment project was first announced last year in Cannes back when Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire was set to direct. Following Sauvaire’s departure Ganslandt stepped in and will make his English-language debut after directing three features, Blondie, The Ape, and Falkenberg Farewell, in his native Sweden. Filming is scheduled for the fall.
The script is by Band of Brothers scribe Erik Jendressen, Dylan Kussman, and Trace Sheehan. Ross M. Dinerstein of Preferred Content is producing alongside Jendressen and Kevin Waller, with Code Entertainment producing and financing the project. Jesper is repped by Paradigm and Magnolia.

A24 has acquired U.S. rights to futuristic thriller “The Rover,” starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce.
Project, set in a dystopian version of Australia, is directed by “Animal Kingdom” helmer David Michod. Producers are Liz Watts for Porchlight Film and David Linde under his Lava Bear Films banner along with Michod.
Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones and Susan Prior also star.
Story, conceived by Michod and Joel Edgerton, is set in a world where life is cheap a decade after the collapse of the western economic system. Pearce portrays a loner traveling in the desolate Australian outback, where a gang of thieves steal his car and leave behind a wounded member, played by Pattinson, who’s then forced to help track down the gang.
Project was announced at Cannes last year with FilmNation Entertainment acquiring the majority of worldwide rights. FilmNation subsequently licensed a majority of territories worldwide based on a two-minute reel of footage.
The film was shot in the deserts of South Australia earlier this year and is in post-production in Sydney. Village Roadshow will release the film in Australia and New Zealand.
Investment partners include Screen Australia, the South Australian Film Corp. and Screen NSW. Financial partners are Fulcrum Media and the Union Bank.
A24 negotiated the deal for U.S. rights with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers and FilmNation Entertainment. UTA also represents Michod.
