The Rover one of 200 Most Anticipated Films of 2014 – “Should score at this year’s Cannes”

Ioncinema has been doing a mega countdown of the Top 200 Most Anticipated Films of 2014. The Rover came in at #47:

Director: David Michôd
Writer(s): David Michôd
Producers: David Linde, David Michôd, Liz Watts
U.S. Distributor: a24
Cast: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson

It’s hard to not overpraise David Michôd. After all, the Aussie filmmaker’s debut, a blistering ensemble film displayed a poised skillset that instantly placed the filmmaker in the big leagues. It appears that much of the make-up in Animal Kingdom’s (men, guns, revenge and death) are knocking down the door of this sophomore film. Re-teaming with Edgerton (story department) and Pearce, and a Robert Pattison who appears to be a bankable choice for auteur filmmakers, this looks like a throwback to golden Ozploitation nuggets of yesteryear.

Gist: This is about a loner who tracks the gang who stole his car from a desolate town in the Australian outback with the forced assistance of a wounded guy left behind in the wake of the theft.

Release Date: Clearly the film is ready and should score a Main Comp berth at this year’s Cannes. Look for the a24 folks to release this a la The Bling Ring, shortly after the fest premiere.
