Sundance is a place for discovery, where new talent can shine in front of an audience hungry for revelation. With their new film “The Sleepwalker,” co-screenwriters Mona Fastvold and Brady Corbet (she directs, he stars) have auspiciously debuted their creative partnership, which is already three screenplays deep. (He will direct their next feature, “The Childhood of a Leader,” starring Robert Pattinson, Tim Roth and Juliette Binoche, later this year, and a third project will follow.)

Since premiering in Europe last September, Robert Pattinson's steamy Romain Gavras–directed fragrance commercial for Dior Homme has generated more than 15 million views on YouTube. When the black-and-white short, starring the 27-year-old Twilight-saga heartthrob makes its American television debut in February, during the Olympics, that number should increase exponentially. Pattinson's steely glances are being repurposed to promote Dior Homme Eau for Men, a fresh new grapefruit and coriander-spiked riff on the heady, iris-laden original scent that hits shelves exclusively in the U.S. in February.
"I like trying to do ambitious things," says Pattinson. Pairing the Parisian luxury brand with Gavras's "violent and visceral" approach was his idea. (The director's infamous 2010 video for M.I.A's "Born Free" was pulled from YouTube for its graphic content.) "That's what got me really enthusiastic about the campaign, that [Dior] wasn't shying away from anything." Pattinson's beauty contract has afforded him a few other perks. "I was a brush-your-teeth-and-have-a-shower kind of guy. I can't tell if it's because of my association with Dior or because I'm older, but I've started moisturizing," he says, calling out the brand's Dermo System Repairing Moisturizing Emulsion as his current skin salve of choice. With a tinge of sarcasm, he adds, "It's been a quite profound change in my life." As for the fragrance he fronts, Pattinson likes it best in shower-gel form. Other musts include Nudie jeans and "old Hanes T-shirts," he says. "There are stores that sell these sweat-stained T-shirts for like $80. It's a weird cult!"
Up next for the British-born star is director David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars—a "darkly comedic Hollywood satire ghost story," according to Pattinson. He also has projects with Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn in the works. "This year, I'm trying to see what my niche is."
They didn't talk about The Rover much but what David did say was it's finished. He completed it a month and a half ago, but the teaser isn't ready yet.
He cast Rob cause he could see the hunger and determination he has towards the career he ultimately wants.
David said Rob is one of the smartest guys he's worked with said he just a fun guy to be around.
In The Rover, Scoot and Rob's characters are from Texas so they'll both have Texan accents. David said Rob was worried about but said he nailed it.
David said he set out to make a more commercial movie after Animal Kingdom but it ended up being darker.
David said Rob and Guy are phenomenal in The Rover and it's the best work they've ever done.
David told us a story of how he saw Rob walking up the street by himself in Corn. Rob told David that it was the most magical experience to be able to do that.
ETA: A few more tweets
David is a very humble man doesn’t like to watch his own work he said he still gets embarrassed when he does. Wrote The Rover in 10 days back in 2007 but said it was “very thin”
David said Rob dose the very English thing of being self-deprecating and says he can’t do things, but has soon as he actually dose them he nails it.
Scoot and Rob would talk on the phone a lot about their roles and the accents because Rob was worried he couldn't do it.
David said for the first time with The Rover kids/young adults weren’t the focus or the main part of one his movies, but in a way Rob’s character Rey was essentially the child of the movie
