Robert Pattinson To Star In “Good Time”
Robert Pattinson will star in a new movie called Good Time.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is a “neo-grindhouse caper.” The plot focuses on a criminal whose bank-robbing spree looks to be nearing its end as the authorities get closer to nailing him. Gossip Cop can confirm that Pattinson has been cast in the lead role of Connie.
Josh and Benny Safdie will jointly direct the project. Josh also co-wrote the script with Ronald Bronstein. The trio’s most recent group effort, the critically-acclaimed drama Heaven Knows What, opened in theaters on May 29.
As Gossip Cop reported, Pattinson actually attended the New York premiere of Heaven Knows What in early May. He happily posed for photos with the Safdie brothers (see above), as well as Bronstein. It was believed at the time that Pattinson was showing support for production company Iconoclast, which was also producing The Trap, to which Pattinson was attached.
Now, Pattinson has scored another role out of the association. The Safdie brothers tweeted Thursday afternoon, “Excited to announce a project we’ve been working on and very excited to make with the untamable Robert Pattinson.” They further wrote to fans, “He will be FULL THROTTLE, get excited.”
Good Time adds to Pattinson’s upcoming film slate. He has two films gearing up for releases, Life and Queen of the Desert. He’s also wrapped production on The Childhood of a Leader. Additionally, Pattinson is slated to star in The Lost City of Z.
The casting in Good Time comes just a few weeks after Pattinson dropped out of Brimstone. As Gossip Cop exclusively reported, the Twilight star pulled out of the film due to scheduling issues. He was replaced by Kit Harrington. TELL US: What do you think of Pattinson’s reported new casting?
