Robert Pattinson Joins New Movie 'The Band'

Robert Pattinson

The final "Twilight" film still hasn't reached theaters yet, but you wouldn't know it from Robert Pattinson's upcoming schedule, as the erstwhile vampire has been firmly putting "Twilight" in his rear view mirror with one high profile project after another. The latest, according to IndieWire: Pattinson will be starring in a biopic about the legendary musical group The Band.

Now that rocks.

The Band, for those of you under the age of 40, began as a backup group for Bob Dylan among others before blowing away critics and fans with their 1968 album "Music From Big Pink." Comprised of Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson, The Band called it career seven years later in epic style with the most famous rock concert this side of Woodstock, immortalized in Martin Scorsese's classic documentary "The Last Waltz."

And now Robert Pattinson is going to help bring them back to the big screen.

"I'm going to do a movie about The Band, the one that played with [Bob] Dylan," Pattinson said in an interview with a French music website. "[It's] a beautiful script about the nature of songwriting."

Now if only he can get Scorsese involved again as well...

What I like about this movie is that I bet he will play guitar!!!  Will he sing? Even if he does, it would have to be in the likeness of the character, not Rob.  Just like in How To Be. BUT... definitely would love to see it.
