'The Trap': It's Official Rob Joins the Cast of Harmony Korine's Next Movie Alongside Al Pacino, Idris Elba and Benicio Del Toro!

'The Trap': C'est Officiel Rob Rejoint le Casting du Prochain Film d'Harmony Korine avec Al Pacino, Idris Elba et Benicio Del Toro!



Via The Hollywood Reporter:
Focus Features finalise les discussions pour acheter les droits américains pour le film 'The Traps d'Harmony Korine, une histoire de revanche avec comme toile de fond l'univers de la musique à Miami, avec Idris Elba dans le rôle d'un gangster rappeur et  Benicio Del Toro en tant que son meilleur ami qui a fait de la prison pour un vol commis par le duo des années auparavant.

Elba remplace Jamie Foxx, et Al Pacino, Robert Pattinson et James Franco sont également en train de finaliser les discussions pour rejoindre le casting (Del Toro avait déjà été annoncé l'année dernière).

(...) Focus décline tout commentaire mais des sources disent que les négociations sont bien avancées. CAA arrangent, financent et repésentent les droits domestiques.

Encore mieux pour The Trap, Lionsgate s'occupe du film au niveau internationnal et devrait vendre le projet aux acheteurs étrangers durant le prochain Festival de Cannes.

Dans The Trap, écrit par Korine, Rico est au top de sa carrière et s’apprête à vivre une soirée triomphale lors des Grammy Awards lorsque Slim (Del Toro) est liberé de prison après 14 ans. Slim est déterminé à se venger après avoir appris que Rico a non seulement acquis la célébrité et la fortune mais qu'il s'est aussi marié avec sa petite amie et élève son fils comme s'il était le sien.

Le plan de Slim inclus de recruter une équipe de surfeurs armés menée par Max (Pattinson)ainsi que de demander l'aide du manager cocaïnomane de Rico (Franco). Pacino jouera  l'agent de liberté conditionnelle de Slim.

Via Collider:
(...) Si le fait qu'Elbe joue un gangster rappeur n'est pas assez séduisant, attendez d'entendre quels sont les nouveaux ajouts au casting. Pattinson devrait jouer un surfeur qui manie le Uzi enrôlé par Slim pour l'aider à se venger de Rico, Franco aura le rôle du manager cocaïnomane de Rico, et Pacino jouera l'agent de liberté conditionnelle de Slim. Donnez-moi ce film maintenant, s'il vous plaît.

(...) La production avance rapidement et le tournage devrait normalement se faire cet été à Miami.  
Via The Wrap:
(...) Pattinson est un fan de ce film et avait exprimé son intérêt à travailler avec Korine sur son prochain projet. (...)

Quelle grande grande news! Et quel casting incroyable aux cotés de Rob!

From The Hollywood Reporter:
Focus Features is in final talks to to prebuy U.S. rights to Harmony Korine's The Trap, a revenge tale set against the backdrop of the Miami music scene starring Idris Elba as a gangster rap artist and Benicio Del Toro as his best friend who took the fall for a robbery the duo committed years earlier.

Elba is attached to replace Jamie Foxx, with Al Pacino, Robert Pattinson and James Franco also in final talks to join the cast (Del Toro was announced last year).

Korine, who is repped by CAA, has been a hot commodity since the indie hit Spring Breakers, also starring Franco. Grisbi's John Lesher, producer of the Oscar-winning Birdman, is producing Korine's latest outing alongside Charles-Marie Anthonioz at Iconoclast and Marc Schmidheiny at DCM Film.

Focus declined comment but sources say negotiations are at an advanced stage. CAA is arranging financing and representing domestic rights.

In more good news for The Trap, Lionsgate is handling the movie internationally and will likely shop the project to foreign buyers at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

In The Trap, written by Korine, Rico is at the top of his career and about to enjoy a triumphant night at the Grammy Awards when Slim (Del Toro) is released from prison after 14 years. Slim is determined to exact revenge after learning that Rico not only achieved fame and fortune but also married his girlfriend and raised Slim's son as his own.

Slim's plot includes recruiting a crew of Uzi-wielding surfers led by Max (Pattinson), as well as enlisting the help of Rico's cocaine-happy manager (Franco). Pacino plays Slim's parole officer.

Elba, who is represented by WME, is next in theaters with Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1). He also stars in African war drama Beasts of No Nation, which was recently acquired by Netflix and is slated to debut on the streaming service and in select theaters this fall timed to awards season.

Pacino is repped by UTA and manager Rick Nicita. Pattinson is repped by WME and 3 Arts Entertainment; Franco by CAA and Untitled Entertainment.
From Collider:
Spring Breakers writer/director Harmony Korine’s next project is firming up, and it looks to be every bit as wild and intriguing as his last film. We learned last fall that Korine had cast Benicio Del Toro and Jamie Foxx to star in a gangster drama called The Trap, but now a casting swap and some fantastic ensemble additions have taken place as Focus Features is coming on to distribute. THR reports that Idris Elba is replacing Foxx in the pic, with Al Pacino, James Franco, and Robert Pattinson also in final talks to join the cast.

Elba will play a gangster rap artist named Rico who is at the top of his career when Slim (Del Toro), his best friend who took the fall for him for a robbery, is released from prison after 14 years. Now on the outside, Slim is determined to exact revenge on his adversary, who not only achieved fame and fortune but also married Slim’s ex-girlfriend and has raised Slim’s son as his own.

If the notion of Elba playing a gangster rap artist isn’t enticing enough, wait until you hear who these new additions are playing. Pattinson is set as an Uzi-wielding surfer enlisted by Slim to help get back at Rico, Franco will take on the role of Rico’s cocaine-happy manager, and Pacino will be playing Slim’s parole officer. Give me this movie now, please.

Lionsgate is handling international distribution and with Focus coming on to take care of the film domestically, things are moving right along to begin production in Miami this summer. Could Korine get another wonderfully against type performance from Elba to rival that of Franco in Spring Breakers? We can only hope.
From The Wrap:
(...) Pattinson was a fan of that film and expressed interest in working with Korine on his next project. (...)

What a great great news! And what a great cast Rob'll be alongside!

  2. J'ai vu Spring Breakers et c'est sur que c'est particulier. Tout comme les films de Cronenberg au final. Il a un style à lui un peu dérangeant. Mas c'est ce que recherche Rob je pense, des rôles très divers et surtout inattendus. Ca va être intéressant
