New location and filming details on ‘The Rover’

The actor, who has a mass worldwide fan base thanks to The Twilight Saga films, will play a thief in the Outback in Animal Kingdom director David Michod’s futuristic western The Rover.

Guy Pearce has also been confirmed for the shoot, which will start in South Australia in late January next year.

Michod and producer Liz Watts scouted locations across SA, including the Flinders Ranges, earlier this month.

Flinders Ranges Mayor Peter Slattery said it would be a treat if Pattinson were in the region during the seven-week on-location shoot. Another two weeks will be shot at the Adelaide Studios.

“I daresay it would induce a bit of excitement in the area,” he said. “The spin-off effect is that the attention on them cross-promotes the area that we’re in. We certainly would be most enthused about him coming.”

Pattinson will have the choice of SA’s best Outback hospitality, from Wilpena Pound, luxury homestead Arkaba Station and Rawnsley Park Luxury Eco Villas to iconic tourist destination the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna.

The South Australian Film Corp has invested $450,000 in the project, which was approved in the latest round of Screen Australia funding.

The Rover’s overall funding budget is $12,250,000.

    True love will find itself. Listen to your heart not the anger. Find a place to be alone and talk. She messed up big time and she knows it and will do whatever it takes to win you back, I’m sure of that. I’m a girl that is a sucker for true love.

    You are a Goodlooking, great guy and a true gentleman. Don’t waste your life hurting over someone who do not deserve a minute of ur time nor ur attention. A woman who claims to love u will never put u in a situation where u will be publicly humiliated. Only selfish spoiled brat sluts who has no honor and poor breeding would do such immoral act and betray those she claimed to care and love. Cheating with a married man is wrong & immoral but cheating with a married man who is married to someone u know and befriended with is the worst type of betrayal coz it only means she is a selfish bitch. There are many fish in the ocean so Move on and continue to be who u are a true and honest gentleman just how ur parents brought u up. Soon before u know it u’ll meet the girl who will love u and respect u and put ur interests first and foremost bcoz is never about selfishness but it’s abt respect and selfless care for the one u love. U maybe hurting right now but soon u’ll appreciate that Kstew’s true nature was exposed before u have the chance to fully commit to her. You will soon see its a blessing in disguise and Kstew degraded and exposed herself so it’s no ones fault but hers. Coz really if u are a trash no matter how u try to hide it sooner & later u’ll stink and that’s what she is! Goodluck and God bless!

    Robert, I know you and Kristen are still together. Know that you were holding hands and kissing and having breakfast together. Good for you and for her. Do not let the press break you guys up. I knew those pictures are faked.

    Is there a Timeline for RP’s film/shooting schedule? I’m curious to see how his future projects may line-up for the future – seems like there are a LOT of projects in pre-pre-production – and I’m just trying to get a handle on them so I don’t miss his projects. Between promotions/filming/premieres/DVDs, etc. I get kind of “lost” in the details. Thank you!

    Uh, pretty sure Rob won’t be reading these comments!
