Robert Pattinson’s next projects
Bong Joon Ho’s Mickey7 adaptation
Deadline was first to report earlier this year that the Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho is working on a feature film based on Edward Ashton’s novel Mickey7 and that Robert Pattinson was in talks to land the lead role. According to the report, the synopsis of the novel is:
Mickey7 is an Expendable: a disposable employee of a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there is a mission too dangerous, even suicidal, the crew turns to Mickey. After an iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of its memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his contract…and why it was the only vacant Colonial position when he took it.
The Batman Sequel
Confirmed by Matt Reeves and Warner Bros., ‘The Batman’ will get a second part after bringing in more $750 million worldwide. Reeves will write the screenplay, as he did with the first one and alongside Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz is also set to return as Catwoman. There are no plot details, but many theories point to a “Court of Owls” script.
Producer for HBO Max
While Pattinson is still very interested in appearing on the big screen, the British star is also building a career behind the camera. Earlier this year, Deadline also confirmed that Pattinson had signed a “first look” agreement with Warner Bros. for HBO Max and he has already registered his production company Icki Eneo Arlo.
In an interview with GQ, he explained that he liked “molding stuff” and that he’s been designing a few projects for a while and that he “wants to find a stranger.” He also said he loves working with HBO Max because “they’re not afraid” to try new things.
