THE ROVER with Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce Begins Production


By AMC Theatres February 6, 2013


Last week, the filming for David Michod's "The Rover", kicked off in Australia. The film stars Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce, as well as Susan Prior ("Publicity Blues"), Gillian Jones ("Packed to the Rafters") and David Field ("Chopper").

Known for his directorial debut on "Animal Kingdom", Michod wrote the script for "The Rover", in addition to helming. The story takes place in the Australian desert, twenty years from now. Guy Pearce plays a man who has left everything and everyone behind him, including any semblance of human kindness. When a gang of criminals steals his last possession, his car, he sets out to track them down. He kidnaps the naive boy of the gang (Pattison), the brother of one of the key members (Scoot McNairy).

Shooting is said to complete in mid-March in South Australia.
