While Battinson fans are starting to grow in their numbers, fans of Pattinson’s other work may be starting to dwindle as his packed movie schedule has forced the actor to drop one upcoming project.
After the reveal that Robert Pattinson will star as Bruce Wayne aka Batman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman, the actor’s schedule started to become too unmanageable and it seemed something had to give.
This comes in the form of Joanna Hogg’s upcoming highly anticipated sequel to The Souvenir. The sequel was due to start filming next month, which would have conflicted with Pattinson’s filming schedule on Christopher Nolan’s upcoming mysterious Tenet.
In 2019 alone, Pattinson will star in David Michôd’s The King and Ciro Gurrera’s Waiting for the Barbarians which are both in post-production, with Nolan’s Tenet beginning to film next month for a 2020 release and an unconfirmed release date for Antônio Campos’ The Devil All The Time alongside Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan and Bill Skarsgård.
The Souvenir ended up winning a
Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Festival, which allowed Hogg to fast-track
a sequel currently in development.
Tenet, meanwhile, has an expansive ensemble cast including Pattinson, John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh, Clémence Poésy, Dimple Kapadia, and Michael Caine.

After the upcoming Nolan movie, Pattinson will most likely head straight into filming for Matt Reeves’ The Batman, a movie adaptation of DC’s Dark Knight which will reportedly not be a retelling of Batman: Year One but will focus more on Batman’s skillset as a world-class detective.
Other announcements for Reeves’ upcoming The Batman
include the reported inclusion of Batman’s sidekick Robin and potentially six
members of Batman’s infamous Rogues’ Gallery including The Penguin, Catwoman
and The Riddler.
The Batman is scheduled for
release on June 25, 2021.
Other upcoming DC projects include Joker on October
10, 2019, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley
Quinn) on February 7, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, The
Suicide Squad on August 6, 2021 and Aquaman 2 on December 16, 2021.
Do you think Robert Pattinson is working
himself too hard? Do you think other projects may fall by the wayside?
