Robert Pattinson , who will marry Kristen Stewart in “Breaking Dawn” this November, is also set to wed Sarah Gadon in David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis.” And, as Gadon revealed to MTV News, it’s going be a very interesting journey for the newlyweds in the film.
“I think it’s a really interesting film, and I don’t want to give away too much, but I think in a really kind of pared-down version of the film, it’s about a young millionaire who loses everything in the course of a day,” New Class-er Gadon said.
“I play his new wife, so I’m one of the only characters that comes in and out of the story throughout the film. We have breakfast, lunch and dinner together, and those are going to be some interesting meals.”
Having already worked with Cronenberg on the Freudian flick “A Dangerous Method,” Gadon said she was fully aware what she was getting herself into, so watching Pattinson get into the director’s dangerous method proved to be quite interesting.
“For me, it was really interesting and great to work with Rob at this point in his career,” she said. “And I think David Cronenberg is a fabulous director, and to see Rob meet with David at this point in his journey as an artist was really special for me to watch.
“I think when you work with David Cronenberg, it’s a really exciting and liberating and, at the same time, terrifying experience. And it was really great, having worked with David, to watch somebody new go through that … I think it’s really great for [Pattinson] to have chosen this role and be a part of our film.”
It’s a great time to be Gadon: Her star is definitely on the rise, and having someone like Cronenberg on her side is certainly proving to be fruitful for the 24-year-old Canadian native.
“I thought that going into the process with ‘A Dangerous Method’ was way more daunting,” she admitted. “I had created an audition tape, sent it into David, had booked the role, flew to Germany knowing I would be playing Michael Fassbender’s wife in a film with Keira Knightley and Viggo [Mortensen] and Vincent Cassel. And then, not having met David until the day I arrived in full period hair and makeup for our camera tests … I didn’t even sleep.
“So, that whole experience really made me grow so much as an actor that by the time ‘Cosmopolis’ came around, not to brush it off, but I was ready for something like that. I felt prepared,” she continued.
“Also, David is such an intelligent and thoughtful director, but he’s also a man of few words, so getting ‘Cosmopolis,’ when he asked me to be a part of that film, in a way, it was a validation.”
