Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson Confirmed For The Rover

Robert Pattinson has been confirmed to star in 'The Rover'.

The 'Twilight' heartthrob has officially been offered a lead role in the futuristic western by 'Animal Kingdom' director David Michod.

The film was given the go-ahead yesterday (26.07.12) when it received funding from an Australian production company along with three other projects, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ruth Harley, Screen Australia's CEO, said in a statement: ''These four highly engaging and diverse Australian stories have huge potential.

'''The Rover' is a powerful, well-crafted script from a talented team with an impressive cast.''

Robert, 26, will feature opposite Guy Pearce and play injured gang member Rey who joins forces with bitter loner Eric (Guy).

Together they will hunt down Rey's gang through the Australian Outback after the last of Eric's possessions are stolen.

David Linde from Lava Bear and Liz Watts from Porchlight Films will produce.

Robert will be seen in the next instalment of the 'Twilight Saga' franchise later this year, in which he stars opposite his off-screen girlfriend Kristen Stewart, who hit the headlines earlier this week after confessing to cheating on him with her 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director Rupert Sanders.
