The film, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will take place in Los Angeles and revolve around the celebrity-obsessed culture in Hollywood. Julianne Moore and John Cusack have also been cast in the flick, which is being described as an indie ghost story. Production is slated to kick off in July in Toronto and Los Angeles.
Pattinson stepped out of his “Twilight” shadow in Cronenberg’s 2012 gritty thriller, “Cosmopolis.” When he spoke to MTV News about hooking up with the director, he explained that working with him was “one of the first times I considered myself an actor.”
“I had to come to terms with that,” he added about getting the chance to hit the set. “That was one of my first questions: ’What do you see in me? Why? Why? Why are you hiring me?’ Cronenberg is one of those people when you’re asked who you want to work with, he doesn’t even come into my head. Because that’s like saying, ’Want to work with Orson Welles?'”
In addition to working again with the director and Gadon, Pattinson has a number of other films in production, including “The Rover,” “Mission: Blacklist” and “Queen of the Desert.”
This will mark the third time that Gadon has worked with Cronenberg . She also appeared in his film, “A Dangerous Method,” describing the experience as “a really exciting and liberating and, at the same time, terrifying experience.”
