Adelaide Now reported on the gritty, first still from The Rover and suggested that production is winding down. This is close to the March 16th date originally reported:
It’s about as far away from the comforts of Hollywood as Robert Pattinson can get.
The first film still image released from the Outback SA set of David Michod’s The Rover shows a dirty and bloodied Pattinson taking a beating from Australian star Guy Pearce.
The shoot on the rough-as-guts futuristic Western is expected to wrap up in the state’s Far North this week.
R-Patz has a busy year ahead. He has three other movies in pre-production in Canada, the US and Germany.
Whenever the film wraps, we’re just happy for the positive feedback the still received. Folks continue to be excited! As they should be. Here’s what Hey U Guys had to say, even throwing down the Oscar gauntlet!
Excerpt after the cut!
David Michôd made a remarkable feature debut in 2010 with Animal Kingdom, and it’s no surprise that we’re looking forward to his sophomore film, The Rover.
The film features an all-star cast, led by Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, and Scoot McNairy, and with the three on board for Michôd, it’s definitely shaping up to be a must-see next year.
And in case you weren’t looking forward to it already, the first image of Pearce and Pattinson has been released, giving a great idea of what we can expect from Michôd here.
Michôd is directing from his own script, reuniting with Joel Edgerton following Animal Kingdom to first write the story together.
The Rover is currently without a release date, but we’re expecting it to arrive sometime in 2014. With any luck, it’ll be fairly early next year. And though it’s early days yet, given the success of Michôd’s Animal Kingdom, we might even have an Oscar contender here for the end of this year.
