With the Twilight series coming to an end this fall, British actor Robert Pattinson will be branching out from the vampire role to take on some new projects in the coming year.
It has just been announced that Rob will be starring in a new film titled The Rover, which just got the greenlight from Screen Australia. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will also star Guy Pearce and be directed by David Michod. The Rover will be produced by Porchlight Films in association with Lava Bear Films.
“Set in the Australian desert, the futuristic western tells the story of Eric, who has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him, as he’s forced to join an injured gang member, Rey, to hunt down Rey’s gang after they steal the last of Eric’s possessions.”
Robert most recently starred in Cosmopolis, which was released this past May.
