Harmony Korine confirms Rob for 'The Trap'. Shooting to start in January


Taking in over six times its budget at the worldwide box-office a few years ago, Spring Breakers, like most of Harmony Korine‘s films, was a love-it-or-hate-it experience, but regardless of how one felt, it certainly brought new attention to the director. For those interested about his career and thoughts on filmmaking, he recently sat down with Marc Maron for a 1.5-hour discussion.

In the conversation, Korine discussed the initial images that led to Spring Breakers, how he helped formulate James Franco‘s character, his current distaste for New York City (as well as his formative years there at NYU), and how Kids came about and Larry Clark discovering him. He also touched on his next feature The Trap, which we haven’t heard an update on since early this year. He confirmed the casting of Benicio Del Toro and Idris Elba (who are the two leads) as well as Robert Pattinson and Al Pacino, with production kicking off in January.

Set in the world of Miami music, it follows Del Toro’s character who gets locked up for a robbery involving Elba’s character and nearly 15 years later is back for revenge. Korine described it as “a complete sensory bombardment,” adding “the way I feel about storytelling now is that it’s more like liquid. It has to do more with energy.” He confirms there’s still a story to be told, saying it’s a “super propulsive, pretty highly violent revenge movie.”

If Idol's Eye and Brimstone had on as scheduled, Rob would have been working constantly. Going to be so much to see of Rob's work with three that are coming out now and three to come out in 2016 that we know of.

I always believed Rob was still in the cast, no one ever confirmed that anyone had dropped out, it was all some stupid rumor, and I'd like to know who was fooling around with the listings on IMDb. I hope they correct that, since he was never out of The Trap.

More good news, Kit Harrington is in Spain and that's where they're filming Brimstone. Looks as if this may have been the conflict that caused Rob to drop out. He can't be filming two movies at the same time in two different countries, as magical as he is.

He had signed onto TLCOZ first, so that had to be his priority, contractually. I'm sure the producer was unhappy when she found out Rob had to drop out, but I'm glad to see that Kit's filming now explains the scheduling conflict, for those who were confused.

Sorry but just have to .... In your face haters. The only way Rob is going is up.

Thanks for that info Marilyn, I thought there would be a good explanation and you and I and everyone knew he was not fired from any films and that these things happen in the film industry, so there it is whether or not Rob reports to set on the 4th or 17th of Aug.in Belfast or the Amazon he couldn't have also reported to set in Spain.
