Robert Pattinson To Receive New Hollywood Award At Deauville Film Festival
Robert Pattinson will be presented with the New Hollywood Award at the annual Deauville American Film Festival, which takes place from September 4-13 in Northern France. Pattinson is expected to attend the event to accept the award, which is a brand new addition to the ceremony founded 40 years ago.
In addition to his award, Pattinson’s upcoming film Life will be screened at the festival. As Gossip Cop has reported, the actor stars in the film as photographer Dennis Stock. The movie is based on the real-life friendship that grew between a Life magazine photographer who was assigned to shoot pictures of James Dean (Dane DeHaan).
As Gossip Cop previously noted, the first trailer for Life was released earlier this month. Pattinson sports darker hair and a New York accent for his role in the film, directed by Anton Corbijn and co-starring Ben Kingsley and Joel Edgerton. The movie had its world premiere in February at the Berlin Film Festival, but does not yet have a U.S. release date.
Elizabeth Olsen is also being honored with the New Hollywood Award at the awards ceremony in Deauville. In addition to Pattinson and Olsen, other stars slated to be in attendance at the Deauville American Film Festival are Jake Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley, Josh Brolin Orlando Bloom, Ian McKellen, Patricia Clarkson and Keanu Reeves.
