Pattinson Joins Cumberbatch In James Gray’s ‘The Lost City Of Z’

Robert Pattinson

TWILIGHT SAGA heartthrob Robert Pattinson is doing all he can to shake off the curse of the shit supernatural franchise (that even he hates). After joining David Cronenberg for a spot of crazy COSMOPOLIS and the MAP TO THE STARS, we’ll also see him star in projects like Werner Herzog’s QUEEN OF THE DESERT, David Michod’s futuristic crime-thriller THE ROVER and fact-based military drama MISSION: BLACKLIST, directed by Jesper Ganslandt. Now we’ve news of another addition to his upcoming slate.

The actor who received his big-break in the Harry Potter franchise will join Benedict Cumberbatch in acclaimed writer/director James Gray’s adaptation of the David Grann best-seller THE LOST CITY OF Z. The book centres on the true-story of British explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett (said to be the inspiration for Indiana Jones), who meant missing in the Amazon while searching for the mythical city in 1925. 

Backers Panorama Media and Brad Pitt’s Plan B productions are hoping the American Film Market event will gain enough interest to get the project moving forward.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
