Robert Pattinson is all set to reunite with his ‘High Life’ director Claire Denis on the English language thriller ‘The Stars at Noon’.
Adapted from Denis Johnson’s 1986 novel, the story is set in 1984 during the Nicaraguan Revolution. Pattinson will star as a mysterious English businessman who meets an American Journalist reporting on the revolution. The two have an instant connection and a passionate romance ensues, only for a “dangerous labyrinth of lies and conspiracies” to force them to try and escape the country.
The film will also star ‘Fosse/Verdon’ Emmy nominee and ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ star Margaret Qualley The script is written by Denis, Lea Mysius, and Andrew Litvack.
Pattinson and Denis worked together on last years ‘High Life’ which saw Pattinson’s Monte and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to the outer reaches of the solar system. They must now rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole.
The face of Matt Reeves ‘The Batman’ – which is currently in production – the film will mark Pattinson’s return to the indie market after dabbling in the Superhero genre. He will also star in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’ alongside John David Washington later this year.
‘High Life’ was Denis’ English language debut, ‘The Stars at Noon’ will mark her next project and her second venture into the English speaking market.
