Thanks to his collaborations with David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis) and now David Michod (The Rover), Robert Pattinson is proving that life after the Twilight project can take an interesting turn. Instead of continuing his forays into studio driven, tentpole type movies, Pattinson has followed his creative heart into more auteur driven features, and with The Rover he gives his most stirring performance to date.
Whether he continues his journey into thematically rich, lower budgeted films or if he will sign on for a huge epic isn’t really part of Robert Pattinson’s though process. For him, picking a role isn’t driven by what’s trending in Hollywood or what film would take him higher atop the A-list ladder.
“I don’t really have any particular preconceived plan, I mean each of the Twilight movies I kind of approached them all as individual movies,” said Pattinson. “I never really saw it as (I’m) going back to work or whatever. You can’t really predict what audiences will like or want or even if they’re going to follow you. I think if you try to make challenging stuff (and) you put your heart into it, hopefully at least one person’s going to like it.”
