The dude from 'Twilight' is making a movie about 'The Band'

  • The Band

Robert Pattinson, the actor who plays sparkly, emasculated vampire Edward Cullen in the "Twilight" series, has told the magazine Les Rockuptibles that one of the projects he'll be taking on in coming months is a film about "The Band."

Before you start thinking the ghost of Levon is going to appear and stake his ass, this might actually be interesting. Beyond all the Twigasming, Pattison is an reasonably good young actor — his turn as Stephanie Meyer's whiny, tubercular virgin-slayer not withstanding — and probably has enough pull in Hollywood these days to bring some real money and talent to what will have to be an ensemble project.

Besides, you can't possibly hate Edward as much as Robert Pattinson does.

From the interview with Les Rockuptibles:

Q: What are you working on right now?

RP: I'm going to do a movie about The Band, the one that played with Dylan: a beautiful script about the nature of songwriting. I'm preparing a thriller too, with a beautifully written script too. It doesn't have a director yet. Tons of French directors are in line to to do. A few years ago, Latin America was where it's happening, it seems it's France turn now ... I'm filming another movie with Cronenberg but i don't know when he wants to start filming. It's going to be his first one in the US and he promises it's going to be very strange. The next two or three years are going to be crucial for me. It's now that that everything happens.
