Robert Pattinson’s ‘The Rover’ Given the Greenlight

Robert Pattinson received some good news yesterday, in between all the drama surrounding girlfriend Kristen Stewart.

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that The Rover has received production financing from Screen Australia and been given the greenlight.

The movie also stars Guy Pearce and is set in the Australian desert. It is a futuristic western that tells the story of Eric, who has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him, as he’s forced to join an injured gang member, Rey, to hunt down Rey’s gang after they steal the last of Eric’s possessions.

Sounds like Robert has some interesting roles coming up. What do you think?
