Robert Pattinson has refuted claims that time travel is part of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet.
Pattinson became a worldwide phenomenon following his portrayal of a love-struck vampire in the Twilight saga. Since then, he has featured in mainly indie movies, and is set to play Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Batman directed by Matt Reeves.
GQ recently did a profile on him and among other things discussed was that the plot of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet.
Pattinson, speaking about the character he plays in the film, said: “He’s not a time traveler. There’s actually no time traveling. That’s like the one thing I’m allowed to say.”
On the scope of the film and the scale of the action, the movie star said it was “so insane” as the crew of around 500 would travel to Denmark, Estonia, India, Italy, Norway, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
His words: “In each country, there’s like an enormous set-piece scene, which is like the climax of a normal movie. In every single country.”
Responding to Pattinson’s words, director Nolan said:
The interesting thing with Rob is, he’s slightly fu*king with you, but he’s also being disarmingly honest. It’s sort of both things at once. When you see the film, you’ll understand. Rob’s read on the script was extremely acute. But he also understood the ambiguities of the film and the possibilities that spin off in the mind around the story. And so both things are true. Yes, he’s fu*king with you, because he had a complete grasp of the script. But a complete grasp of the script, in the case of Tenet, is one that understands and acknowledges the need for this film to live on in the audience’s mind, and suggest possibilities in the audience’s mind. And he was very much a partner in crime with that.”
