Robert Pattinson Is One of 'Unbound Captives'


Robert Pattinson


'Twilight' hunk Robert Pattinson will star opposite Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz in his next feature project, Madeleine Stowe's 'Unbound Captives'.

Robert Pattinson will tackle on period drama "Unbound Captives" for his next feature project. The English actor who is well known for his role as Edward Cullen in "Twilight" has been set to star in the Madeleine Stowe's directorial debut alongside "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" star Hugh Jackman and Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz.

In the movie, the 23-year-old, who is currently filming "The Twilight Saga's New Moon", will be portraying the kidnapped son of Weisz's character. Of Pattinson's recruitment, director/writer Stowe revealed that the actor has agreed to star in the film before "Twilight" made him a household name. "Robert said yes last fall, before everything broke with 'Twilight'," so she claimed.

"Unbound Captives" is written by Madeleine Stowe and her actor husband Brian Benben. Telling the story of a frontiersman (Hugh Jackman) who helps out a young woman (Rachel Weisz) whose husband is killed and two children are kidnapped by a Comanche war party in 1859, it was intended to be her starring vehicle. The movie is scheduled to get a year-end production start.

Earlier, Fox have offered Stowe $3 million, and later $5 million, for the film's script. The studio reportedly planned to develop the movie with Ridley Scott as the director and Russell Crowe as its star. However, Stowe turned down the offer because there was no promise she would be anything more than screenwriter.

    That will finally shut up all the negative crowd who thinks Pattinson is only good as a Vampire. Mr. pattinson is a amazing actor. With Hugh at his side there will be no more questions

    Jackman is a great actor. Ideal for a macho role in a western film. I don't know about Pattinson but maybe Hugh can teach him a few acting lessons. Well, I too think I'm pretty much excited about "Unbound Captives"...

    Luv the idea of Pattinson working with Jackman. Jackman can teach Rob how to develop into an all rounder to appeal to a male audience as well as the amazing female support he has. Pattinson is one smart kid.

    I am not sure about Pattison, he isn´t too great actor. But he could suprise. I love Jackman and Weisz, they were fantastic in The Fountain together. So this looks promising. And what is with their obsession with Russell Crowe? He is a great actor but too conflicted and...fat.
