In yet another move to distance himself from the tween roots that made him one of the most bankable stars on the planet, Robert Pattinson’s next major role is opposite Guy Pearce in dirty, grimy Aussie outback thriller The Rover. Based on a story by Aussie actor Joel Edgerton (Zero Dark Thirty, The Warrior) Pearce plays a loner forced together with a wounded local (Pattinson) as he tries to track down his stolen car. It’s like Dude Where’s My Car but….you know…..not at all.
If this early clip is anything to go by then this is set to be one of the quiet classics of the year.
The Rover is slated for release 20th June 2014 US and 22 August 2014 UK
