    GAH! I’m so excited for this one… What a fantastic cast, Rob will work with Al Pacino!

  • Kris

    What a great opportunity to work with Al Pacino. Terrific news!

  • Let’s Be Real

    Sounds like a fantastic cast!

  • Maggiemae

    Why should anyone be excited for him?

  • Seth Aicklen

    I hope: 1) The movie actually gets made, and 2) Rob has a significant part, unlike recent flics.

  • Kingston

    They have financing and it’s already being sold worldwide by Lionsgate. No worries about this movie, it’s not a foreign indie where the director is in over his head and his producer promises more than he can deliver.

    The producer of this film is the same man who produced the Oscar-winning Birdman. So it’s all good.

  • Kingston

    Why should you even be here, you loser? If you’re not a fan, why do you follow every bit of news about him? He owns you.

    He’s got 4 films to make this year, with respected directors. He’s choosing quality over quantity, and he will always be popular and wanted. You’re living proof, you can’t quit him.

  • sienna sienna

    why has this post been removed so soon from hot topics?

  • Maggiemae

    First of all Kingston, I am not a loser. His articles are always on KS page and there is NO law that I can’t voice my opinion about anyone. Are you from a Communist country? I have never liked him and the reason I comment on him is because of the hate that you rob fans have for Kristen. And Gina, I am not a leach and not attached to RP’s anything. Grow up!

  • Kingston

    BS. There is NOTHING in this article about KS. You’re just a stupid hater.

    Who hates KS? I don’t care anything about her, I would never bring up WHAT SHE’S DONE if you would leave Rob and Twigs alone.

    Commenting on her cheating, her dropping out of middle school, her calling Twilight fans ‘retarded,’ are things SHE DID. Talking about that is not “hating” her. Learn the difference.

    No one would talk about her if you didn’t make hateful comments about Rob and his girlfriend. You aren’t fooling anyone, you wish he was still with KS because without him, she’s irrelevant. You don’t like her choice of girlfriend, you can’t support Alicia, so you hate on Rob.

    It’s sick and twisted and makes you the biggest LOSER. Grow the F up. Move on. Nothing you say makes any difference.

    And two wrongs don’t make a right. You will always be a loser if you don’t understand that.

  • Kingston

    He’s never worked with Franco before. They were never even on set together for QoTD. Franco’s character dies before Kidman even meets Rob’s character.

    So they’ve never even met. Rob confirmed that during The Rover promo. And he has no control over who else is cast in a film. It’s not a big deal, the only thing Franco was ever good in was Spring Breakers, from the same director. And he’s playing a similar character so it should be fine.

  • Kingston

    At least his films don’t play for a week and then go straight to VOD where they die, the way Camp X Ray did.

    Rob is making quality films, he doesn’t have anything to prove. And I’d rather see any of his films than tripe like FSoG. That may make money, but it’s a joke. Dornan will have a lot of hard work to be taken seriously as an actor from this point on.

    Rob has moved beyond that, and is working with respected directors, ensuring he will have a long and varied career.

  • Tigerlilly

    Can’t stand Franco. Being in a movie with him is working with him for me, even when they technically have no scenes together. They are in the same movie in the end. And having always high looking Franco in the same movie is a bad thing, cause he’s ruining everything with his stupid grin and constantly mumbling. To me he was only good in ’127 Hours’. ‘Spring Breakers’ was just awful. I got headache from this dumb movie.

  • Me1

    Lol, you are pathetic.

  • Me1

    You are a leach. I’ve seen you comment on several Rob and The Trap articles. K not interesting enough for you these days? What kind of a loser seeks out articles about someone they don’t like? Moron.

  • star

    Pattinson is a better actor than Franco , just look at the Herzog Movie

  • star

    you are a venomous snake and you can’t wash away the foulmouthed cheaters image , never going to happen , now save yourself some time , grow up and follow someone with morals

  • star

    Truth is a disturbed person

  • karen

    I´m excited, happy, happy……

  • karen

    chloe
    Ooooo! You are pathetic….

  • karen

    And why are you here?????

  • karen

    ?????? Sorry, but at least I don´t care about Miss K and this is on Rob´s page. And Well then don´t complain when someone express an opinion about Miss K.

  • chloe

    Wow… I don’t even understand the vitriol here. I actually really like Rob and want him to do well. That’s why I’m excited for this movie… it’ll give him a bigger platform than he’s had with some of his other films. Not sure what’s pathetic or problematic about that. Just compare the buzz that Harmony Korine’s last film, “Spring Breakers,” had to “The Rover’s” buzz. Still getting indie cred, just with a bigger following. Geez.

  • Mercy

    Shut up!!!!

  • Mercy

    Shut up!!!

  • chloe

    Ha, I find it a tad ironic that your name is “Mercy.”

    Also, real mature.
