The “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson is said to have received the offer of playing the role of an astronaut in Claire Dennis’ sci-fi film. The movie will take the audience beyond the solar system, mainly in a “future that seems like the present.” Read below to know more about it.

According to Screen Daily, it is very early to say anything about the plot except its core concept “beyond the solar system.” The name of the movie is probably not fixed but the story will be written by the famous writer Zadie Smith, who is known for his famous novel “White Teeth,” published in January 2000. Dennis is writing the script with Smith’s husband Nick Laird.


Lot of Hollywood producers will be producing for the movie that will go into the production early next year in Cologne in Germany. They are Christoph Friedel and Claudia Steffen of Pandora Filmproduktion in Cologne, and Laurence Clerc, Oliver Dungey (Miss Julie) and Olivier Thery Lapiney of Alcatraz Films based in Paris.

Dennis’ 2013 movie “Bastards” was also produced by Pandora Film, a German film production house, jointly with France-based Alcatraz Films. The movie starred Pattinson with other cast members like Vincent Lindon, Julie Bataille, Chiara Mastroianni, Michel Subor, Alex Descas just to name a few.

“We are very proud and very happy, as is Claire, about what will be a great collaboration. Robert is committed to the project and we are committed to him,” said one of the producers of Alcatraz Films.

As reported by The Guardian, the viewers found Pattinson in the role of an American photojournalist and documentary photographer Dennis Stock in the movie “Life,” which was a biographical drama film directed by Anton Corbijn. The 29-year old Pattinson is also famous for his character Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
