The Batman actor Robert Pattinson is working on a new project with Parasite director Bong Joon-ho. After his successful portrayal of the beloved DC character, Pattinson will now venture into a different kind of story that he has never done before.
Pattinson rose to fame because of his role as Edward Cullen in the hit Twilight movie series based on Stephenie Meyer’s books. Later on, he started working on indie movies and with filmmakers the likes of Christopher Nolan and Robert Eggers.
Robert Pattinson On The Dystopian Sci-fi Movie ‘Mickey 17’
For his upcoming new film, Pattinson spoke with Esquire and shared his thoughts about Mickey 17. The actor revealed that the movie is completely different from all the projects he has done before.
“It’s like nothing I’ve ever done before. The movie is so crazy, it’s a completely different style of working. It’s so much talking.”
Mickey 17 is a dystopian sci-fi movie where Pattinson plays two characters, specifically a pair of clones who need to team up for a dangerous space quest. Warner Bros recently released a first-look image of Robert Pattinson aboard a spacecraft, where he seems to be in a device known as cryosleep in science fiction.
There is little known about the plot of the movie, although it is an adaptation of Edward Ashton’s novel. Pattinson also did not want to reveal too much information, perhaps to keep the audience interested.
His body of works over the years is quite impressive, and he explored diverse types of characters such as the demented lighthouse keeper in The Lighthouse and the creepy preacher in The Devil All The Time.
Pattinson is also reported to wear the cape again for the sequel of The Batman. Warner Bros has confirmed that the movie is in production, and Matt Reeves will return to helm the film.
Robert Pattinson Finds It Difficult To Take A Break
Despite all the projects and crazy schedules that Pattinson has to deal with, the actor reveals that he still worries about his future career.
“There’s just something in me which runs very, very deep, and it makes the idea of taking a holiday seem like an impossibility… I find myself going, ‘No, I have to keep working, I have to keep working all the time, this might be my last opportunity.’”
This mindset is how Pattinson draws all of his talents, and it shows in every performance he takes. His upcoming movie, Mickey 17, will show the audience another side of him that they have never seen before.
