Some good news for Robert Pattinson today: Screen Australia has announced it will back the actor’s latest film, ‘The Rover,’ from ‘Animal Kingdom’ writer/director David Michod and co-starring Guy Pearce.

According to THR, Screen Australia has gone on a spending spree and ‘The Rover’ is one of four feature films to receive financing. The production outfit is also backing four TV dramas and four children’s television series, providing $100 million of production in Australia.

‘The Rover’ tells the story of Eric, a man who deserts his life, everyone he knows, and any human connection to venture out with an injured gang member named Rey when a gang steals the last of Eric’s belongings.

Ruth Harley, Screen Australia’s CEO calls ‘The Rover’ “a powerful well-crafted script from a talented team.” And we believe it, especially considering Michod’s previous work on the gritty crime drama ‘Animal Kingdom,’ starring Joel Edgerton.

Pattinson can be seen next in David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis,’ based on the novel by Don DeLillo, in which he plays a wealthy businessman who encounters a wave of troubling and bizarre experiences while stuck in traffic in Manhattan, en route to get a hair cut. He also has the finale to the ‘Twilight‘ saga, ‘Breaking Dawn — Part 2‘ releasing this fall.

Pearce has had a hell of a year as well, starring in ‘Lockout‘ (aka SPACE JAIL), ‘Prometheus,’ and ‘Lawless,’ and he has a role in the upcoming ‘Iron Man 3,’ directed by Shane Black.
