You have to thank Robert Pattinson for bringing director David Cronenberg together with his newest muse, Kristen Stewart.
Stewart, 32, is starring in Cronenberg’s latest horror flick Crimes of the Future – but he might reunite them.
Cronenberg, 79, admitted in a recent interview with World of Reel that it was actually Stewart’s “Twilight” co-star who first introduced her.
Pattinson, 36, starred in two of Cronenberg’s films – the 2012 thriller Cosmopolis and 2014’s Maps to the Stars.
“Actually, Robert Kristen introduced me. They’ve grown beautifully separately as actors,” said the Canadian filmmaker. “Make art house films and pull it off successfully. Kristen and I had a great time and Rob and I had a great time.”
That “great time” could go even further, Cronenberg said, if he can bring “Robsten” back to the big screen together.
“For me, yeah, I can definitely think of a movie or an idea that would be great to have them both together,” he said.
“I don’t want to get into that because it wouldn’t be my next film, but it could be problematic as fans might expect a certain type of relationship and that would get in the way of creating new characters for them.” Cronenberg continued. “So, I have an odd feeling that could be problematic, so it’s just theoretical for now.”
Pattinson and Stewart – affectionately known as “Robsten” in the late 2000s – co-starred in the widely popular young adult vampire film series from 2008 to 2012. New moon.”
Upon completing the snappy, bloodthirsty franchise, both Pattinson and Stewart dove into the indie and art house sectors of Hollywood.
The British actor has lent his talent to films such as ‘The Lighthouse’, ‘Good Time’ and ‘Bel Ami.’
Recent unconventional film roles for Stewart include Camp X-Ray, Personal Shopper and
“Clouds of Sils Maria.”
Cronenberg’s next project is The Shrouds, starring Vincent Cassel as a businessman who builds a machine to connect with the dead in a shroud. Filming will begin in March 2023.
Stewart was hard at work promoting Crimes of Fashion recently during the Cannes Film Festival late last month.
Also starring Léa Seydoux and Viggo Mortensen, the film is replete with many scenes of gory and gory footage of child autopsies, body mutations and people orgasming from licking wounds.
Many viewers reportedly left the screening of the film during last week’s French festival
Stewart recently responded to the criticism and the strikes, noting at his Cannes press conference: “Everyone loves to talk about how [writer-director Cronenberg’s] Films are difficult to watch and fun to talk about people walking out of Cannes screenings.”
According to Insiders, she also praised the “A Dangerous Method” director. “Every gaping, weird bruise in his films makes my mouth drop. You want to get involved. And it never turns me off. The way I feel it’s through really visceral desire and that’s the only reason we’re alive. We are pleasurebags.”
