Thanks for posting this. It's always great to get news about Rob's work.

just saw that the start date for LCOZ has been confirmed to be on august 17 which means that it is possible that rob wont be able to attend the festival...we will see i guess but i would love to see him in venice (even with that beard...)

Rob MyLove said...

Great News. I hope Rob is able to attend the festival.

Rob MyLove said...

Oh it's the same day as the Life Premiere in France? If true wonder where Rob is going?

Good for Brady to be recognized. Would love to see Rob at the screening but probably won't because of LCOZ. I hope he film is well received.

rob has confirmed he will be in Venice for the festival

andrea samson said...

@alice really? i would love that but i am sceptical. they just start filming LCOZ in belfast i would have thought at that time they would be in columbia filming. and it`s quite a long way from columbia to the venice film festival. but we will see i guess.

YES!!!! Robert Pattinson has been confirmed to attend the Venice Film Festival for his film CHILDHOOD OF A LEADER!

alice said...

I think the Columbia part of LCOZ will be later...perhaps october...not sure how the seasons go in Columbia

andrea samson said...

@alice thanks but i don`t know i am still sceptical. robs other movie "good time" is also supposed to start filming in the fall so he actually doesn`t have the time to film LCOZ so long. i guess we will see but i sure would love to see rob all dressed up again even with that monster beard lol

No one special said...

Where did rkmovies get the confirmation?

Margarita Lopez said...

Ooooook... Not to be a bug, but let's clear that now:
ColUmbia is the filming company or state from the USA...
ColOmbia is the country from LatinAmerica...

The artistic director of the Venice FF is the one who has confirmed that Rob will be there. It's a Saturday, he doesn't have to film 7 days a week, this is built into his TLCOZ schedule.

Good Time is not filming in Sept. It's still in the script stage, it's in development, it's not even in pre-production yet. It won't film until after The Trap finishes, next year.

Rob will be filming TLCOZ this fall, in Colombia.

Alesia Breen said...

Thanks Marilyn, that sounds about right.

Margarita Lopez said...

@alice ... There aren't seasons here... The weather and so, depends on the altitude when you're close to the Eq Line...
Although I usually say that we got 4seasons in one day, because it could be cold wet in the morning, hot hot hot midday, windy afternoon, and freezing evening...
But, again, depends on how high you are... So, if a place is not good enough for you, then you can just drive 4 hours, and poof!! Weather got different...

andrea samson said...

@Margarita Lopez omg sorry margarita i`m embarrassed. you are right of course.

@Marilyn whaaaaat? i must be behind some news?? last thing i remember is that not even long ago both the filmsites and the directors and production weekly said that they are planning to start filming in the fall.

but whatever i will just wait and see lol. at the moment my focus is on LCOZ anyway haha

Marilyn said...

The Sept. date for Good Time is coming from Production Weekly, and they're wrong. They're not always reliable.

It's physically impossible for Good Time to film this year, the script isn't even finished. There's a lot of preproduction that has to go into a movie before it goes before the cameras, and they aren't in preproducution yet, and Sept. is just a couple of weeks away.

It won't be filmed until after Rob completes The Trap, sometime next year.
