Jackson has signed on to a new project, according to MTV.com. It’s called “Girlfriend”, and is an indie, romantic drama.
With an ever-increasing public profile and commitments to the “Twilight” franchise and M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender,” Rathbone could easily continue making strictly big-budget movies. But as the actor explained in an earlier interview, he’s relishing the prospect of diving into all aspects of a film’s production.
“I get to play a part in ['Girlfriend'] and have a little bit more say behind the scenes, behind the camera, which is really interesting,” Rathbone told us. “It’s what I’ve always really wanted to get into.”
Lerner also pointed out that the indie flick will give Rathbone an opportunity “to do things he hasn’t done in a film before — really push himself into emotionally difficult places.”
