26 May - It looks like Warner Bros is really embracing their new Batman star, as it was revealed that it has now inked a first-look production deal with Robert Pattinson.
The news was confirmed by the "Twilight" star himself, who expressed, "Warner Bros Pictures and HBO have always been synonymous with groundbreaking filmmaking. I'm 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," he added.
The new deal means Pattinson will be working along not only with WB, but also New Line Cinema, Warner Bros Television, and HBO Max - with the actor to make his mark as a producer. The deal will include theatrical, subscription video-on-demand and television releases.
