More Info on 'The Rover': Director and Producer Scouting Locations


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.

This is so exciting. I am happy that Robert will have some distance from her and that he will be speaking in an Aussie accent, I am really looking forward to that.

I'm a fan of Brazil and I wonder if the fans are preparing something for the U.S. premiere of Cosmopolis because of past events, to one strength. With posters say he is better than all this, or things like that. Do you could organize it, he must feel the love from fans.

Yes cris your right..... How can we do this.... Let's try and do something across the world for him in order to show our support. Rob we love you. We will always be there for you.
