Ever since he was cast in the upcoming film, The Lost Coasts, audiences have been keeping a close eye on Rob Pattinson. The movie, now in post-production, is based on a novel by Peter Mayne. In the novel, Mayne wrote that “a young lawyer from London, England, is dispatched to the Greek islands to investigate the mysterious drowning of a young woman on the eve of the Turkish invasion.” The plot is a familiar one: a beautiful (and talented) woman, Diana (played by Marion Cotillard) falls prey to a charming yet dangerous man (played by Robert Pattinson).
There’s no denying the fact that the 20-year-old actor has got the heart of every woman (and man) in Hollywood. Between his brooding good looks, chiseled jaw, and impossibly blue eyes, it’s no wonder that people are keeping track of his every move. However, this time around, audiences may be watching Rob for more than just his beauty. He is set to play the lead in The Lost Coasts, a gritty, dramatic thriller directed by Aleksei Serebryakov. The film is set for a September 25th, 2017 release. Fans of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones may recognize Serebryakov’s name. He was the executive producer of the highly-acclaimed TV series The Brotherhood, as well as the director of four episodes. It is worth noting that this will be Serebryakov’s first English-language feature film. Whether or not his previous work in TV will translate into a successful feature film remains to be seen. Still, the man has managed to grab the attention of Hollywood heavyweights like George Clooney and Angelina Jolie. It is clear that he is not afraid to tackle real-life issues head-on, something that many Hollywood films tend to avoid these days.
What Is This Greek Film Scene?
If you’re not familiar, the Greek island of Skyros is off the coast of Turkey. The island has a unique vibe that draws inspiration from both Europe and the Middle East. For those who have visited the island or know anything about it, they will tell you that it is a combination of the two. It has a cosmopolitan population that mostly consists of Turkish and British ex-pats. The combination of these two cultures have given the island a hybrid identity that you can only find in a place like this.
The majority of the film will take place on the island of Skyros. The location has a lovely view of the islands of Lesbos and Chios, which are situated to the east. It also has fantastic golden beaches and crystal-clear waters. One of the most popular excursions from the island is a trip to the Acropolis, where you can walk about two kilometers (1.2 miles) along the ancient city walls and catch a sight of one of the most recognizable monasteries in the world.
The Role Of Robert Pattinson In This Film
Actors like Marion Cotillard and Robert Pattinson usually do not get mixed up in the same movie. Nevertheless, in The Lost Coasts, we will see them working together on a truly remarkable project. It was originally reported that the actor was not only interested in the role of Stephen Ramsay (the young lawyer from London) but also wanted to play the part of Kurtan Pasha, the ambitious and charismatic son of a local landowner. However, since there was already another actor attached to the role, the producers had to search for an alternative. They eventually found a young woman named Anna (Marion Cotillard) who shared some of Kurtan’s characteristics. Stephen will find himself in a race against time, trying to uncover the truth behind Anna’s mysterious drowning while also trying to protect her from Kurtan’s threats. It is worth noting that Kurtan is the main antagonist of the piece and the film’s final scene will have the couple confronting each other one last time.
Why Is This Film Different?
This is a question that the film’s producers have been asking themselves ever since the news first broke that George Clooney and Angelina Jolie were attached to the project. It is not often that one of Hollywood’s biggest names gets involved in a film, let alone one that features an unknown actor like Robert Pattinson. Still, the duo have signed on to produce and star in the film, which is set to be a dramatic thriller. They will join forces with Ammaselam Aleksei, who will produce the film through her Ammaselam Films banner. It will be her first English-language feature film after previously working in TV production.
Jolie and Clooney are not the only high-profile Hollywood figures attached to the project. The film also stars Elle Fanning, Guy Pearce, and Pedro Pascal. Together, these four heavyweights will help to shape the narrative of a grittier, more realistic take on the familiar story.
It is still early days for this project. The film has not yet begun shooting and the script is still being crafted. However, so far, it seems like these four have brought something new to the table. George Clooney and Angelina Jolie have already proven that they can work well together. Moreover, they have put their collective stamp on the script, removing any doubt that this is a real-life tale.
This film’s focus on the Greek islands may also be a first for Hollywood. We hear that the region was used for some outdoor drama in the 17th century. This is important, because although it might be set in the Greek islands, this is not necessarily a Greek-themed film. The screenplay was originally written in English and the producers have gone to great lengths to ensure that it stays true to the original novel. They have hired a Greek translator and have also made several trips to the islands to establish the setting before moving to shoot on location in Hungary and Iceland. It is an interesting move by the film’s producers, particularly since it is a combination of two very different cultures. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how much of a connection the audience can really feel with this film, especially since it is the first major English-language production to put the spotlight on the Greek Islands.
