Up-and-comer Peltz stars in M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, The Last Airbender, with Twilight cutie Jackson Rathbone. But she’s also landed a lead role in the hushed-about western Unbound Captives, alongside Robert Pattinson.
So what can we learn from Nicola about the two Twi-guys? And what the heck is up with Captives, Rob’s movie that was announced more than a year ago?
“I loved working with Jackson, he’s like my brother,” said Peltz, praising her costar. “He’s so sweet and talented!”
No argument there, so let’s move onto Unbound Captives, shall we?
Nicola told us Jackson hasn’t given her any tips about teaming up with Pattinson, but she’s heard R.Pattz is a fab guy to work with:
“I haven’t talked to Rob, but I met Hugh [Jackman], who is also going to be in it. He’s so talented and so much fun! We’re both really looking forward to working with Rob, too. I can’t wait to work with both of them!”
Talk about a hot cast. But what’s it about, exactly?
“It’s based on the Comanche tribes a while back,” said Nicola, pausing for a bit. “It’s hard to explain, but it’s such a great script.
“Rob plays my brother, and when we’re four, we get kidnapped. Our mom looks for us forever until we’re about fifteen. We don’t even know her when she comes by. And one—well, I can’t give you the whole thing—but one of us stays in our tribe and one of us goes back with her.”
We’re assuming from IMDB Rachel Weisz will be playing the mother, and we’re also hearing it’s gonna be a bit of a tear jerker (Peltz nodded in agreement).
Pattinson talked about Captives last fall during promotion for New Moon, saying that he thought production would begin in early 2010, which our R.P. know-it-alls clearly can see hasn’t happened.
Rob’s currently filming Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon, and will possibly get rolling on Breaking Dawn as early as November, so fans have been worried this Comanche flick has been put on the back burner. However, Peltz assures us the movie is happening.
“I know, they keep changing [when filming will start], but it is going to start soon!”
N.P. said she hoped to meet Rob for the first time Sunday, since they were both at the MTV Movie Awards. But with Rob being so into Kristen Stewart and getting shuffled all around the theater, we’re not sure if she got the chance.
So what say you Pattinson fans? Approve of Rob’s next flick? If he looks as good as he does while filming Elephants, you’ll read no complaints by us ’bout R.Pattz adding yet another heartfelt historical flick to his resume.
