Entertainment Weekly has revealed a first look at Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson in writer/director David Michôd's upcoming thriller THE ROVER. Get a first look below!
The film takes place in the Australian desert, in a dangerous and damaged near future. Eric (Pearce) has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him when a gang of desperate criminals steals his last possession. Eric sets off on a ruthless mission to track them down, forced along the way to enlist the help of Rey (Pattinson), the naïve and injured junior member of the gang who was left behind in the chaos of the gang's most recent robbery.
Explains Michôd, "The basic story is really quite elemental. You've got a really dark, dangerous, murderous person in Guy's character, and in Rob's character you have a quite troubled and damaged, but beautiful and naïve, soul."
