Robert Pattinson reveals Cronenberg reunion and The Band biopic

The star will work with cult director again after 'Cosmopolis'

Robert Pattinson has revealed that he will reunite with David Cronenberg.

The Twilight star is making headway with his adult career, working with the cult director on the forthcoming Cosmopolis, which has premiered at Cannes. And now he has said that the pair already have plans to work together again.

Speaking to French magazine Les InRockuptibles, Pattinson said: “I’m filming another movie with Cronenberg but I don’t know when he wants to start filming. It’s going to be his first one in the US [Cronenberg traditionally films in Canada] and he promises it’s going to be very strange.”


He added that his favourite Cronenberg movies are “probably Videodrome or Scanners. I like Crash a lot too. It did well in France, right? In England, I remember how people went nuts because of it. They even banned it! Of course, that made everyone want to see it. When I watch it nowadays, it baffles me that it could have been banned. It’s absurd.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Pattinson revealed that he will star in a movie about The Band. He said: “I’m going to do a movie about The Band, the one that played with Dylan: a beautiful script about the nature of songwriting.”

Known for their track ‘The Weight’, The Band was founded by established musicians Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson. They frequently performed with Bob Dylan as well as Van Morrison. Further details about The Band film are still unknown.
