Good Time, a new movie starring Robert Pattinson, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The lineup for the 2017 installment of the annual movie gathering in the South of France was announced on Thursday.

Good Time will be part of the films competing to win the coveted Palme d’Or award. There are nearly 20 in-competition screenings set, with some of the movies highly-anticipated already. But Cannes can mark a turning point for less-known projects, and Pattinson’s latest could be among them.

As Gossip Cop reported, Pattinson was first attached to Good Time in 2015. The actor signed on to the lead role of Connie, a bank robber with the authorities hot on his tail. The movie was co-directed by Josh and Benny Safdie, who teased on Twitter when the film was announced that Pattinson would be going “full throttle.” They further told the actor’s fans to “get excited.”

Pattinson is pictured with the brothers above at the premiere of their last film, Heaven Knows What, in the spring of 2015. Production on Good Time took place in early 2016 and, in March of that year, co-star Eric Roberts tweeted a set photo with Pattinson, calling him “the kindest, most pro, zen, comfortable actor I’ve ever worked with.” Now a year later, the flick is in post-production and headed to one of the biggest film festivals in the world.

The Safdie brothers tweeted in response to the news, “After 19 months of slaving with GOOD TIME, it’s a surreal dream to play in competition @Festival_Cannes. We can’t wait to share it.” It’s not yet known if Pattinson will be attending the event next month, but given that he’s the film star, it’s likely he will take part in the traditional photo call and red carpet premiere.
