'The Rover' Gets US Distribution

From THR
A24 has acquired U.S. rights to David Michod’s thriller The Rover, starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.

Set in a futuristic version of Australia following an economic collapse, the film follows Pearce, who plays a loner traveling the outback, who teams up with Pattinson to track a gang of thieves.

Michod, who wrote and directed 2010’s Animal Kingdom, also wrote The Rover based on a story he and Joel Edgerton conceived. It was produced by Michod, Liz Watts for Porchlight Film and David Linde under his Lava Bear Films banner.

The film co-stars Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones and Susan Prior. Natsha Braier served as director of photography and Jo Ford, who also collaborated with Michod on Animal Kingdom, was production designer.

A24 will release The Rover theatrically in the U.S., while Village Roadshow will release it in Australia and New Zealand. The film’s investment partners include Screen Australia, the South Australian Film Corporation and Screen NSW, and financial partners Fulcrum Media and the Union Bank.

”A24 is a perfect fit for The Rover -- a young, innovative and exciting company at the cutting edge of the independent sector in the US, they have contributed to an already exciting array of global distribution partners, and we are pleased to be partnering with them on the future release of the film,”
producers Watts and Linde said.

A24 is currently distributing Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and will open James Ponsoldt's The Spectacular Now on Aug. 2.
A24 negotiated the deal with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers and FilmNation Entertainment. UTA also reps Michod. Prior to selling the U.S. rights to A24, FilmNation Entertainment licensed the film to a majority of territories worldwide based on showing a two-minute reel of footage from the film.

From Variety
A24 has acquired U.S. rights to futuristic thriller “The Rover,” starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce.

Project, set in a dystopian version of Australia, is directed by “Animal Kingdom” helmer David Michod. Producers are Liz Watts for Porchlight Film and David Linde under his Lava Bear Films banner along with Michod.

Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones and Susan Prior also star.

Story, conceived by Michod and Joel Edgerton, is set in a world where life is cheap a decade after the collapse of the western economic system. Pearce portrays a loner traveling in the desolate Australian outback, where a gang of thieves steal his car and leave behind a wounded member, played by Pattinson, who’s then forced to help track down the gang.

Project was announced at Cannes last year with FilmNation Entertainment acquiring the majority of worldwide rights. FilmNation subsequently licensed a majority of territories worldwide based on a two-minute reel of footage.

The film was shot in the deserts of South Australia earlier this year and is in post-production in Sydney. Village Roadshow will release the film in Australia and New Zealand.

Investment partners include Screen Australia, the South Australian Film Corp. and Screen NSW. Financial partners are Fulcrum Media and the Union Bank.

A24 negotiated the deal for U.S. rights with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers and FilmNation Entertainment. UTA also represents Michod.

Last night, in Los Angeles, Dior revealed the new face of it's leading men's perfume, Dior Homme. A heartthrob actor with a dazzling career that parallels the trajectory of the legendary fragance, who is the man behind the scent?

He's returned from Australia where he was filming the new David Michod movie with Guy Pierce, The Rover . And will soon kick off shooting David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars alongside John Cusack and Julianne Moore. And then it will be the turn of Hold On To Me , from James Marsh. Any ideas? Previously, he was in Cosmopolis and Water For Elephants . Cinephiles should have already guessed... And his first role? Cedric Diggory in the fourth installment of the Harry Potter series. Getting warm? And then... Well then, of course, came the unforgettable Twilight saga. There can be no doubt remaining, and you've guessed it: Robert Pattinson will embody the new Dior man, the new Dior Homme

PARIS — Parfums Christian Dior has confirmed that actor Robert Pattinson is the new face of Dior Homme fragrance.

The “Twilight” star joins an illustrious list of celebrity ambassadors for Dior fragrances, which include Jude Law, Alain Delon, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron.

American photographer Nan Goldin and French director Romain Gavrais shot the campaigns starring Pattinson, Dior said, noting they are to be broadcast in Europe excluding the U.K. and Asia, excluding China and Japan.

The article from WWD has been updated with more info

According to Dior, the print campaign will break from Sept. 1 in a range of magazine titles for women and men, along with daily newspapers.

The television commercial, shot largely in New York, is to debut the same month in 60-second and 80-second lengths.

Dior's Official Statement - Article from Marie Claire UK
After months of speculation about the star's rumoured partnership with the brand, the House of Dior has released an official statement today confirming the campaign.

They said: 'The House of Dior is delighted to announce that actor Robert Pattinson is to be the new face of Dior Homme fragrance.'

The statement then goes on to praise Robert's successful career in a number of high-profile movies, saying: 'Since his first notable role in 2005 in the fourth Harry Potter sequel, film star Robert Pattinson has more recently come to be known through his role in the runaway box office success, the Twilight saga.

'He has since proven the scope of his acting talents by choosing films as varied as Remember Me by Allen Coulter, Water for Elephants by Francis Lawrence, in which he starred alongside Reese Witherspoon, or with his role as Bel-Ami, the famous Maupassant character.

'In the ultimate tribute to his talent, David Cronenberg chose him to star in his latest picture, Cosmopolis, adapted from the novel by Don de Lillo. A striking role as a golden boy which premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

'He has recently completed filming David Michod¹s The Rover in Australia with Guy Pearce and will soon be on set for David Cronenberg¹s next picture, Maps to the Stars. Following on he will star in Hold on to Me, directed by James Marsh and co-starring Carey Mulligan.'


Dior Homme adds: 'Today we are excited to announce that he will join the privileged circle of Dior faces. Photographed by American artist Nan Goldin and filmed by French director Romain Gavras, this new Dior Homme communication campaign is currently broadcast exclusively in Europe (except UK) and Asia (except China and Japan).'
