Robert Pattinson Set To Star In New Sci-Fi Film Alongside This Avengers Star
Movie fans, I’ve got some super exciting news. Giant Freaking Robot reported that a new sci-fi film from the director of Parasite, Bong Joon Ho, has a star-studded cast.
Robert Pattinson and Mark Ruffalo have signed on to star as well as Toni Collette, and Naomi Ackie.
In 2020, Parasite became the first foreign film to receive Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Critics are expecting even more accolades to come out of Bong Joon Ho’s new film based on the book by Edward Ashton called “Mickey7”.
In the book, the main character named Mickey is given the solo mission to colonize a planet called Niflheim, which is essentially all ice. The mission is incredibly high stakes and dangerous. But, the reason why Mickey is assigned to the mission is that he has the remarkable ability to clone himself after dying. Even crazier, when he does regenerate as a clone, he still has all of his memories intact. But, supposedly when he regenerates for the 7th time, something goes a bit awry. And soon, Mickey finally begins to question his mission.
Robert Pattinson is set to play this main character.
Giant Freaking Robot says critics expect Bong Joon Ho to not go exactly how the book’s plot unfolds. The book adaptations he has done before have shown he oftentimes only “loosely” bases the movie script on the book.
There are no details yet on the film’s name or release date. GFR says since casting has been announced, it would be no surprise if filming began here shortly.
Many critics are expecting a lot of awards for this film upon completion based on the director and actors cast so far.
