This deal comes a little less than a year prior to the duos biggest film yet: Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Pattinson will be stepping into the mantel of the cape crusader that has awed audiences for over eight decades from comics to film. After this announcement, Pattinson will be stepping into another important role that he has not done yet: producing. The 35 year-old actor was only a producer on Remember Me from 2010, but now with this deal he will be an active producer on any number of projects. He just has to approve them.
In a statement released with this announcement Pattinson said that he’s “thrilled to be working with them to discover the most exciting new voices in film and television and help bring their visions to life. I’ve loved working with the studio over the years and have so much respect for their dedication, their willingness to take chances and their desire to push the envelope creatively.”
Both sides seem satisfied with one another after they worked together on Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, so hopefully the good times can continue to role with their subsequent projects.
Their next project The Batman is set for a March 4, 2022 release date.
