Kristen mentions Rob in EW's article about 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'!

 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' [known as 'Master Of The Universe' in our fandom] is one of the most popular Twilight fanfictions that was lately published as a book & it's going to be made into a movie as well.
Excerpt from Entertainment Weekly's interview with the book's author, E. L. James.
Since Fifty Shades began as Twilight fan fiction, you may wonder what Kristen Stewart has to say -"It's funny--I heard about it yesterday, Rob (Pattinson) and Wyck (Godrey), our producer, were talking about it. I've heard its quite sexy-very titillating"

Will she read it? "Hell, yeah!"

'Cosmopolis' in Best Movie Magazine - New quotes from Rob & David Cronenberg!
Translated by Google
"I'm afraid," confesses Robert Pattinson.
"Fear for an actor is always a good thing. He's also a fantastic, stunning, a great performer" responds indirectly David Cronenberg. "The script was crazy and difficult," the actor continues. "When I heard that the person was him, I had an intuition. I know that Robert is a grand leap" echoes the director.

Distance dialogue between the student and teacher, working for months on the set of their first project together, for the big screen adaptation of Cosmopolis, the surreal novel by Don DeLillo.

"In the year 2000, one day in April" Thus begins the odyssey, a long 24 hours, Eric Parker, 28 year-old multimillionaire who left home with his white limousine to go to the barber, remains locked in the traffic of Manhattan and is involved in a series of events that jeopardize his safety and his heritage ... It would be impossible to describe in a few lines the surreal journey the protagonist takes in a Manhattan without frontiers, a sort of virtual town where the limo floats like a social network and chat with other "traces" of humanity. Between tasers, pie in the face, the threat of someone wanting to kill him (both as a person and as a symbol of humanity no longer in the horizon) and the presence of his mysterious life companion, ethereal woman, guardian angel and his wife constantly betrayed.

After Crash, Cronenberg continues his exploration of the imaginary modern metropolitan, hallucinated and perverse, using a cast which also includes Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche and Mathieu Amalric
WHY YOU SHOULDN'T MISS IT: To observe the modern world through Cronenberg's look. And it could be Pattinson's professional 'redemption'.

David Cronenberg talks about 'Cosmopolis' & mentions Rob and his fans!

From his interview with FilmInk
 image host image host
Fortunately, despite the fear that is currently paralysing the film business, Cronenberg already has his nxt film in the can. Cosmopolis is an adaptation of Don DeLilo's novel about 24 hours in the life of a Manhattan multimillionaire. "I wrote the script in six days, because the book is so cinematic - the dialogue is incredible," Cronenberg says. "That was unusual for me - to write a script that quickly. But then it was waiting to go." The project was brought by him by veteran Portuguese producer, Paolo Branco. "He flew to Toronto," Cronenberg says, "He came with his son, and said, "My son says that you are the right director for this project."
The only issue was that Cronenberg was lined up to shoot A Dangerous Method. "But Paolo said, "I will wait for you." And he did securing the services of one Robert Pattinson in the meantime to play the leading role of Eric Packer, an asset manager who endures a surreal odyssey across New York when he sets out in his hi-tech limo to get his hair cut and finds the car stuck in a monumental traffic jam. "About 70% of it takes place in the back of a limo." confirms cronenberg who still had to deal with legions of R-Pattz fans during the shoot. "It sometimes was a little difficult. But Toronto is relatively repressed, i.e civilized."

Daniel Radcliffe talks about Rob in a new interview!

I have a weird relationship with fame. It's hard to live sometimes but I don't want to complain. People are nice with me and I think it comes with the way you handle things.

For example, I think it's totally different from what Rob (Pattinson) lives. He's a guy I like a lot - and no I do not have his cell phone number, I say this because it's always the first thing people ask me. He's a sex symbol. He's sexy and just need to do his brooding look for girls to fall. He has the perfect height to seduce girls, I'm the total opposite (laughs). He might be charming and cute, wild and sexy .. I do not have this kind of status, just look at pictures in the press. When we're put side by side, I look a little silly or I make faces whereas Rob always looks like a ladies' man. Therefore it doesn't help me when it comes to the ladies. Maybe because now that they grew up with me they consider me more like a big brother than a potential boyfriend.

Philip Glenister talks about Rob's fans & 'Bel Ami'!

 Philip Glenister is not given to musing about his work. He’s a jobbing actor – or at least that’s what he’d have you believe. When asked what made him commit to playing Charles Forestier, a journalist in 19th-century Paris in new film Bel Ami he quips, ‘I was free on a Tuesday.’
But much about Philip is a front. Behind the gruff exterior – which he used to great effect as the brash DCI Gene Hunt in Life On Mars and its sequel Ashes To Ashes – is not quite a softie, but certainly someone who cares about his craft and works hard. He just likes to joke about it.

I ask him whether he had any journalists in mind when playing Forestier, the man who gives Robert Pattinson’s caddish character Georges Duroy his big break. ‘I based it on Piers Morgan,’ he says with a cackle.

Forestier and his wife, Madeleine, played by Uma Thurman, take Duroy under their wing, and she advises him the best way to get on in Paris is via the city’s most influential wives. Duroy embarks on some torrid affairs and steamy bedroom scenes as he scales the social ladder.

So how was it working with such impressive actors on the risqué period drama? Word is, Uma can be temperamental. ‘She’s bonkers,’ he jokes. And then there was Robert, one of the hottest actors in the world thanks to his role in the Twilight films. ‘We were filming at a house in Hertfordshire adjoining a school. The pupils got wind of it and started chanting, “Robert, Robert”. We had to threaten them with cattle prods!’

David Cronenberg talks about Rob & 'Cosmopolis' at Queen's University Film and Media Courses!

His film Cosmopolis, based on the novel by Don Delillo, is in post-production. It stars Robert Pattinson as a Manhattan millionaire.

The film was shot in Toronto, a favourite shooting location of Cronenberg’s.

“I’ve never shot a foot of film in the U.S., even though a lot of my movies are set there,” he said.

Toronto also provided a refuge for Pattinson’s international celebrity, he said.

“When we were shooting on the streets, [Pattinson] had a lot of fans crowding around, but he could go to bars and clubs in his street clothes and people didn’t recognize him,” he said.

Cronenberg said Pattinson has a deep knowledge of cinema with a talent that stretches beyond what is shown in the Twilight Saga franchise.

“He’s a very serious actor. He wants to be great and takes the trouble to try and be great,” he said. “What he does in [Cosmopolis] will lay that question to rest, which a lot of people who are skeptical of Twilight are asking.”

Pattinson wouldn’t be the first actor to be recognized for his talent in a Cronenberg film.

Reese Witherspoon mentions Rob in her interview with Entretenimento r7: "He's very grateful for everything he's been living!"

While doing promo for 'This Means War', Reese Witherspoon talked about Robert Pattinson, who she worked with in 'Water for Elephants'.

In the movie, the star of the Twilight saga, plays a vet student that joins the circus in the beginning of last century.

In the movie, Reese plays a character called Marlena, the circus' star, engaged to an animal trainer.

“He's great. And oh my God, so handsome!”

The actress praised Pattinson's effort to manage two jobs at the same time.

“What surprised me was his dedication. He would film all weekend long, then spend the week on the Twilight [set], then another weekend filming, then more Twilight... And he still had that lightness, humility. He's very grateful for everything he's been living.”

"As I told Anne, the trailer shall be sent out this Friday."

"Best regards, Grégoire"

 P.S. We have to wait and see! I'll keep you posted!

'Bel Ami' directors talk about Rob & the movie with Huffington post!

 Robert Pattinson has made a generation of girls swoon, and brought in millions of dollars for the producers of the Twilight phenomenon, where his portrayal of Edward Cullen means he needn't get out of bed again if he doesn’t feel like it.

So, it would be understandable if such adulation had gone to his pretty tousle-haired head, and made him a bit difficult to work with. How did the directors of his new film Bel Ami deal with such an idol on this, their very first film?

"He was delightful," insists Nick Ormerod, one half of the directing duo along with Declan Donnellan - established theatre directors with a body of stage, ballet and opera work more than three decades in the making, but novices when it came to film.

"He did insist on rehearsing for a whole month before we did our first shoot, which is apparently unheard of in Hollywood, but he was passionately attached to the project."

"He wasn't that famous when we offered him the part," remembers Donnellan. "He'd done Harry Potter, Twilight was just starting, and I remember seeing his face on the side of a bus.

"Our film took so long to get going because it was art house, that he went off and did Twilight, so we were watching this phenomenon take place."

Bel Ami was filmed two years ago, which meant the Twi-hards were out with a vengeance by then - remember the tales of Pattinson bunkered down in America trying to film Like Water For Elephants in a small mid-western town? Donnellan and Ormerod look surprised by such unseemly tales:

"We had a relatively serene experience," smiles Donnellan. "Only a tiny bit of that in Budapest. We shot in Twickenham, and there was literally no one there.

"But then, we hit the red carpet in Berlin, and it was like being in Bladerunner, an incredible experience being in the middle of this phenomenon. It was astonishing and hilarious, particularly for our first film."

Ormerod and Donnellan were steering their golden boy through the French period drama, Bel Ami, based on the short story by Guy De Maupassant, detailing the climb of a young man Georges Duroy (Pattinson) through the ranks of Parisian society, thanks to his success with the ladies who succumb to his pale, cheek-boned charm.

"Rob kept saying, 'this character has no redeeming features, he's so venal'," laughs Donnellan. "It's thrilling to see somebody like that, and Rob agreed. If he sees something he gets it, it's that base level of envy, which he can only cure by getting what the other guy has. There's no lesson in the film, our purpose is only to make you come out asking questions."

As well as Pattinson, the directors were able to tap into the talent pool of Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci, which could have been intimidating for novices behind the camera.

"Uma is a great personality, she is fantastic, and she does make her opinion known, but that was absolutely fine," laughs Donnellan.

"We've done a ballet with the Bolshoi before, and operas with Bryn Terfel, so we have done some scary things before.

"Kristin we knew well from our work in Paris, but Uma and Christina and Rob all came from our casting director. They all come from very different backgrounds, the one thing we all shared was not having done anything like this before.

"You go in hyper-prepared, and then when you get on the floor, you realise you actually don't need all that, and get rid of it - the storyboard is really just to reassure other people as well as yourself. Ultimately, the whole thing is improvised. Whatever you planned, you always saw something better on the day."

Having set such a high bar, are Ormerod and Donnellan now claimed by the film world?

"We're already back on stage, but we are definitely bitten with the bug," explains Dormerod.

"We would have done more projects in the past," muses Donnellan. "But we can't bear to leave the theatre for that long - six months of lunches in Soho House is as much as we can take."

'Bel Ami' US release date: June 8, 2012!

From Deadline
New York – (March 12, 2012) – The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today the June 8th U.S. theatrical release of BEL AMI, starring Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, and Colm Meaney. BEL AMI had its World Premiere as an Official Selection of last month’s 62nd Berlin International Film Festival.

In this sexy retelling of Guy de Maupassant’s classic tale of blackmail, manipulation, and social-climbing, set against 19th century Paris, Pattinson stars as the young and very ambitious George Duroy, who discovers that his unadulterated passion and seduction skills with influential Parisian ladies (Ricci, Thurman, and Thomas), above-all, is the fastest and most effective way to the upper echelons of the society he so desperately wants to control.

Directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, the film was written by Rachel Bennette, produced by Uberto Pasolini (The Full Monty), and Simon Fuller of XIX Entertainment (“American Idol,” “So You Think You Can Dance”) executive produced.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (SPWA) will handle all other U.S. media.

“BEL AMI is a well-crafted, appealing film with a terrific ensemble cast,”
said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “We think it’s a great fit for our Ultra VOD program.”

The deal was negotiated for Magnolia by SVP of Acquisitions Dori Begley and Head of Business Affairs Chris Matson with SPWA’s EVP of Business Affairs Michael Helfand and VP Acquisitions and Distribution Tana Evans.
