Robert Pattinson & Mia Wasikowska Film ‘Maps To The Stars’ At Runyon Canyon
Robert Pattinson and Mia Wasikowska were spotted filming scenes for David Cronenberg’s latest feature Maps to the Stars on Tuesday.
Maps to the Stars, which also stars John Cusack and Julianne Moore, is billed as an examination of the complexities of Hollywood and how the culture informs Western culture at large. The screenplay was written by Bruce Wagner (State of the Union), who went on to write the novel Dead Stars based off the script after the film was put on hold several years ago for financial reasons.
Pattinson plays the role of Jerome in the film, an aspiring actor who works a day job as a limo driver. Jerome gets befriended by Agatha Weiss (Wasikowska) – daughter to a self-help guru and sister to a child star – after she’s released from a stay in a sanatorium for pyromaniac tendencies.
In the drama satire, Moore plays an aging actress haunted by her deceased mother who's hell-bent on recreating the mother’s iconic film role. Moore’s character, Havana, is a client of Agatha’s father Dr. Stafford Weiss (Cusack). The naturally red-haired actress who dyed her hair blond for the role believes the film addresses the desperate mission to become something in Hollywood.
“It’s not only about celebrity culture, but the pursuit of fame at any cost," Moore said during a press event. "There’s this weird disconnect that the celebrity culture enforces and I don’t know how we got there. I feel like it happened really rapidly too because when I started out as an actor it wasn’t quite the same."
Filming the indie feature, Pattinson has been spotted on set all over Los Angeles. He’s previously worked with Cronenberg on 2012’s Cosmopolis.
Maps to the Stars is set to be released sometime in 2014.
