Robert Pattinson To Play Thief In New Film 'The Rover'
The Twilight hunk will reportedly star alongside Guy Pearce...
Following reports that R-Pattz is set to star in the Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire directed flick Mission: Blacklist - which is about the hunt for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussien - reports now claim Rob has also joined new flick, The Rover.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Pattinson will star alongside Guy Pearce in the movie, which will apparently be directed by David Michod.
While there is little known about the project, it is thought the film takes place in the near future and follows a man - played by Pearce - who ruthlessly hunts a group of thieves through the rough Australian outback after they steal his car.
Pattinson will allegedly play a thief named Reynolds, with Variety reporting that Michod will pen the script based on an original idea from Animal Kingdom star Joel Edgerton and himself.
David Linde and Liz Watts are set to produce under Lava Bear Films and Porchlight Films.
Both Rob's latest move ventures are still in development, but Pattinson still has a busy year ahead of him.
He is set to travel to the Cannes Film Festival to promote David Cronenberg's mind-tripping Cosmopolis, as well as playing vampire Edward in Breaking Dawn - Part 2 for the last time.
