Although most of Robert Pattinson’s fans are totally focused on November 18 — a.k.a. the release date for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ — the heartthrob has another equally buzzworthy film headed into theaters in 2012: the dark, postmodern drama “Cosmopolis.”
The film, adapted by screenwriter and director David Cronenberg from Don DeLillo’s novel, revolves around a day in the life of hotheaded asset manager Eric Packer (Pattinson) with most of the plot’s action taking place in a limo.
MTV News caught up with “Cosmopolis” co-star Kevin Durand at the premiere of “Real Steel” over the weekend, and he had nothing but rave reviews for both the film and its leading man.
“It’s awesome. We’re just in postproduction right now. It’s incredibly exciting,” Durand said. “Robert is a very gracious, kind fella, and we had a great time [filming]. We had a really great time.”
When asked what new sides of Pattinson’s acting abilities we’ll see in the film, Durand said we’ll see an edgier, more adult version of the “Twilight” star. “He’s got an edge to him in this film,” Durand said. “He did some really excellent work that I think he should be very proud of.”
The “Real Steel” and “I Am Number Four” actor went on to say that given the subject matter and action in the plot, the film will have a more adult rating and that fans should be very excited to see it.
“[It takes place] in present day, but it’s its own time and place,” he explained. “Mr. Cronenberg has such an amazing voice. I myself am just as excited, probably more excited, than anyone else to see it, just to see what he’s done with it.”
