after Twilight all his movie are flop wonder why?

# 2

Great news!!!

# 3

This is a fantastic project, with a top notch team. Yet another clever move for Pattinson, he clearly nows what he’s doing! Very exciting.

# 4

PLEASE let Rupert Sanders direct

would love to see that

# 5

Yes! Sounds exciting! Can’t wait to see this!

# 6

He’s doing really amazingly career wise.

# 7

DeHaan will be perfect for Dean.

# 8

Yeah for Deehaan. Too bad, he’s with RPutz. MBL must have fallen through. As long as he’s not playing James Dean. Deehaan will kill it. Love him. I guess every movie needs an ornament, thanks RPutz.

I love it!!

So Dane has played Harry Osbourn and now James Dean. He’s stalking James Franco! Just kidding! I think Dane’s very talented and hope he keeps making interesting career choices and avoids becoming a pretentious douche like Franco.

Uhm, if he knew what he was doing, his post twatlight movies wouldn’t be all flops.

Dane should be the headline here not Rob.

his movies aren’t flops…they’re all small indies, they’re not supposed to make a lot of money

@ab: You are so wrong. Remember Me and WFE earned more than 3 times their budgets. Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis had a lengthy applause at Cannes and Rob received very good reviews. Cosmopolis appeared on 25 top film of 2012 lists and on 69 top ten lists.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that. lol

I want to see that! I hope Dane DeHaan does a good job though. I’m a big James Dean fan, so that could ruin it for me. But I’m very interested in the story!! I love Stock’s pictures of James Dean. And those of others as well, amazing.

Yes! perfect casting for both roles. Exciting indeed.

@niagirl: MBL is doing rewrites since the film has a new director. Rob received mostly good reviews for Remember Me and WFE. Rob received many very good reviews for Cosmopolis. He is a proven talent and the top directors are interested in working with him.

Life sounds really cool and I’m impressed by the producing team who brought us The King’s Speech and Shame. Excited to see how Dane and Robert portray the friendship in this film.

James Dean is a cultural icon so this film will generate serious buzz. Rob is
making impressive outside of the box film choices.

Love the choices that Rob is making. Definitely steering his career in the right direction and with the right people.

He just keeps rolling out these fantastic movies. Love all the indie movies he is making now. Love DIOR Rob.

Can’t wait. If Rob makes it they will come.
If he likes it or uses it they will buy it.

Great News ……I like it that Rob is place the iconic photographer Dennis Stock . This seems like another one of his excellent movie choices !
