David Michod Film: The Rover Robert Pattinson


Robert Pattinson has been communicating during The Rover promotion- and before that too- that he’s been choosing his film projects based on directors. He says he figures if he chooses top directors (he says he has a list of 20 he wants to work with) he feels he can’t go wrong. That at the very least, he’ll enjoy the experience working with top people.

Film: The Rover

There’s been many articles on The Rover, and many quotes from David Michod and Guy Pearce. I just like this one, there’s some things we’ve heard before from Michod, but related a bit differently. It’s a first for me to hear there was a hesitation to allow Guy Pearce’s character to wear shorts (!!!)

Anyway, here’s a couple of excerpts, please go to the source for the full article.

Antonio Ribeiro: ‘Queen Of The Desert’ imagines “on big screen come September of this year”

Film: Queen of the Desert

Dated today, a post from Antonio Ribeiro (Queen Of The Desert time lapse photographer see IMDB page). EXCITING news- he says he imagines the film will be released “come September of this year.”

Note- this is not an official announcement, and we don’t know if this means a theatrical release or a festival- one would suspect a festival.
