Robert Pattinson has two good movies in his kitty – Tenet and The Batman. The former will mark his first collaboration with ace director Christopher Nolan. Also, in Matt Reeves’ directorial, it will be the first time he will wear a superhero cape. Everyone is excited to see the actor in both these movies.
While Tenet is all ready and set to release, The Batman’s shooting is yet to be finished. When The King actor was shooting for Nolan’s sci-fi thriller, that’s when he was offered Reeves’ movie. So how did he manage to get the DC movie while working on Christopher’s project? Well, the actor lied.
Robert Pattinson has confessed that during the shooting of Tenet, he used to lie to Christopher Nolan. He did it to get time for The Batman. In an interaction with The Irish Times, the Twilight actor said, “It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies.”
However, one day, the Tenet director found it. Robert Pattinson shared, “And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test — I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a family emergency’ he said: ‘You’re doing the Batman addition, aren’t you?'”
Well, looks like behind a sci-fi thriller, the star cast did have some tongue-in-the-cheek moments. Both the movies are crucial storywise and even for Pattinson.
Along with Robert Pattinson, Tenet also stars John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Dimple Kapadia. The Christopher Nolan directorial will hit the screens on August 26 in 70 countries. In the USA and China, the movie is scheduled to release on September 3 and 4, respectively.
