sophie-cooksonFirst up from ScreenDaily comes the news of DeHaan and Pattinson in Life.  The Luke Davies (Candy) script follows the friendship between Stock (Pattinson) and Dean (DeHaan) that started when the former was commissioned to photograph the budding young actor.  An accomplished photographer himself, Corbijn will likely have some interesting takes on the material.  His upcoming feature, A Most Wanted Man, is currently in post-production.  DeHaan can next be seen in Kill Your Darlings, Devil’s Knot and Metallica: Through the Never before appearing in next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, while Pattinson will appear in David Michod’s The Rover and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars.

A press release for the currently-in-production Dark Places adds de Matteo as stripper Krissi Cates.  Shooting in Shreveport, Louisiana, the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel also stars Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace MoretzNicholas HoultCorey Stoll and Tye Sheridan.  De Matteo will next be seen in writer-director Shana Betz’s drama, Free Ride

Variety reports that Cookson will star in The Secret Service, as Vaughn has gone with a relative unknown rather than a household name.  Written by Vaughn and Jane Goldman, the story centers on a veteran Secret Service agent who mentors an upstart trainee.  Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine also star.

    Pattinson is probably angry that he didn’t get to play james dean considering thats who he thinks he is.

      With all respect but I think you don’t have a clue of who he really is. He doesn’t think he is the next James Dean, but because he does brooding like no other actor of his generation can , the media (including Dior) has always compared him with Dean and Marlon Brando. When asked once during promo for Remember me, about this comparison he answered that the only thing he wanted was to bee himself.
      Why should he be angry for not playing Dean? He has been on the woman’s idol scale as high and longer than Dean. He doesn’t look forward to play a variant of his own life.,From what I know of him, I assume that he’s more interested in the character of such a talented photographer. Pattinson is far more interested in arts than in being a star. The media knows that.

        Calm down sweetheart did I offended you for making fun of your talentless boyfriend?

      • Davis

        Also if he was only interested in the arts why is he doing deals with dior then?

      • blackbeanie

        That’s a good question but before I’ll answer i just want to say that I don’t feel offended at all. As you’ve figured out I’m a fan of him so I follow his career and there it ends. If you find him talentless, that’s fine for me. It’s just that it bothers me a little when people show in their comments that they don’t know the person of whom they’re talking about. Of course the fans don’t know either but after reading and watching interviews you know when the celeb has a big ego or not, when he’s mostly honest or not. Rob has the reputation in the media that he’s down to earth, modest and too honest for his own good.
        Now to your question. He has said in the past that he didn’t see the point of being the face in commercials, that is true. But he isn’t a fool either: when many actors/actresses show up in commercials it becomes normal. Rob until now has refused many movie offers that he didn’t find interesting and he has refused all commercial offers (and that were many as it is mentioned in all his Dior interviews). But you can’t continue to refuse or you won’t be asked anymore. Recently he has said that he’d like to (financially) support arthouse movies, edgy films. So, or he took a part in a mainstream movie or he took the offer of Dior. He prefered the ladder because they let him chose the director and he wanted to work with Romain Gavras for quite a while. Dior gave both of them enough freedom and they made an artistically well done ad that has more than 6 500 000 views at youtube yet. Dior pleased, Rob pleased and he can play in indies for very little money (as Cronenberg has said).and will probably produce some of them in the future.
        He is a cinephile, a musician, he admires French directors, he has offered drawings for charity and ..he’s always been a reluctant star, never considered himself handsome or sexy at all.
        Voilà, think what you want of him, or me, but at least you know a little bit more about the actor :)
        Btw English is not my native language so my apologies for mistakes.
