Robert Pattinson Joins Unbound Captives
05.13.09 by REELZ
Robert Pattinson has apparently signed on to appear in period drama Unbound Captives, alongside Hugh Jackman (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Rachel Weisz (The Mummy).
Production on the movie is due to start at the end of the year, which leaves just enough time for Pattinson to finish New Moon promotional duties. Rumor has it he accepted the part last fall, before he shot to instant fame with Twilight.
To be written and directed by Madeleine Stowe, Unbound Captives sees the widow Weisz's two children captured by a Comanche war party in 1859. Jackman plays the frontiersman who rescues her, with Pattinson taking on the role of the son.
Things are looking good for the young British actor, who was also recently linked with 2010's Dune update. We're betting he's glad he auditioned for that little project called Twilight. Unlike co-star Kristen Stewart, he knows when he's got a good thing going.
