It's been a busy and exciting 24 hours for Robert Pattinson fans. Late last night the actor signed onto the Iraq war flick "Mission: Blacklist" and today has seen a plethora of "Cosmopolis" clips land online, giving an even greater taste of what he has coming up in his collaboration with David Cronenberg. But he's not done yet.

Pattinson is now attached to star in "The Rover," the new movie from "Animal Kingdom" director David Michod. Based on an idea he developed with his friend Joel Edgerton, Michod penned the script which is a near-future set story that follows a man who goes on a journey across the Australian outback to find his stolen car, which contains something invaluable to him. Also coming along for the ride is Guy Pearce, who gave one of the best performances of his career in "Animal Kingdom," so we're pretty excited to see them back together. Pattinson will play Reynolds in the film, with Pearce as the man tracking down his car.

The plan is for the film to shoot this fall, and while everyone has an opinion on Pattinson, you can't fault his choices of late. He's clearly utilizing his clout to work with interesting directors and on compelling projects, and it's really hard to argue with that approach. And if it means his name can help get "The Rover" made, who are we to complain? [Deadline]
