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.”

Rob's Interview with IO DONNA - Italy (translation)


IO DONNA ITALY: ROBERT PATTINSON IS IN A MOVIE ABOUT JAMES DEAN, BUT HE ISN'T THE STAR: "IT'S BETTER THIS WAY"

"To set myself free from the Twilight saga, I agreed to be the co-star in Life", says the actor who plays the star's photographer who died 60 years ago.

"Twilight? I am proud to have been a part of it. I am no longer forced to pursue a job as I did before Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The fame sprung after that still puts me at ease, also on the economic side, to select only the projects I believe in. And Life is the proof of that."

Anton Corbijn talked about Rob at the Guanajuato Film Festival

"I had noticed that he took papers out of the ordinary (Bel Ami and Cosmopolis) wanting to see that it was a real actor; and good in his life he is chased by photographers, and now he must act as one,"
