Have You Heard? Rob's Future Films

Bel Ami came and went, for me with a bang... lots and lots of banging, for others a two week fizzle on demand. Nothing can compare to the big screen. UAB and I were lucky enough to find a theater playing it, we were able to get the full effect of Georges DuRoy in a quiet theater in downtown Chicago. Now it's all about waiting for DVD sales!

Next we are patiently awaiting Cosmopolis to premiere. It is being shown in NY and LA starting 8/17, then opening at theaters across the US on 8/24. However, there is no word on exactly which theaters will be playing the film, we will of course try to keep updated on this. Fandango is going to be getting a lot of hits from people searching for Cosmopolis showings real soon. Update: Thank God for the interwebs Landmark Theaters will be showing Cosmopolis in the listed cities. When there are more, we will let you know.

We also cannot forget the wrap up to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn 2. In this premiere, we will see a new side to Edward Cullen when he becomes father to half breed vampire Renesmee.

Up next there are rumblings about The Rover and Mission: Blacklist.

The Rover has recently been greenlit. Screen Australia has announced they will provide production financing, which means now they have money to get the ball seriously rolling!! Porchlight Films will produce, Film Nation will do international sales with Roadshow Films being the Australian distributor.  Rob will be working along side Guy Pearce on this project.

Then there is Mission: Blacklist, which Rob has spoken very excitedly about in recent interviews.
He is set to leave for filming in about a month. Not much time to prepare to head into Iraq, but this one needs to be gritty and realistic... which will not happen on a sound stage in LA. In this video Rob speaks a little on the film and meeting Eric Maddox.

Which of Rob's next projects are you most looking forward to?
