The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Robert Pattinson has been spotted around New York City filming his up-coming picture Remember Me (wherein he plays Tyler Roth).
Says Just Jared, Jr.,
The 23-year-old British actor plays Tyler Roth in the movie, which centers on two lovers whose newfound relationship is threatened as they try to cope with their respective family tragedies. Lost star Emilie de Ravin was cast in the film, playing a young woman who, after watching her mother get killed before her eyes, seizes life to its fullest.
Says OK Magazine,
Before the throng of admirers showed up, Robert, dressed in a flannel shirt over a cotton white tee, jeans, black sneakers and carrying a black backpack, Rob ate breakfast outside with some of the cast during morning walkthroughs. "He was breakdancing and joking around," one R-Patts spotter tells OK!. "When lots of people did show up, Rob tried to act unfazed, standing behind some extras and laughing with his male co-stars and a few extras."
The sheer number of looky-loos has made shooting the film difficult for the small crew. "The PAs [Production Assistants] are having trouble moving people out of the shot," one source explains to OK!.
In the scene being shot this morning, Rob walks with a male friend around the corner of a building talking while carrying a coffee and chewing on a straw, which he had been doing during most of the morning.
Despite the off and on rain, filming continued and is expected to go on into the night. Luckily for all involved, the shooting is expected to move indoors later today.
The film, which Pattinson hailed as a really good script that he could identify with, is being filmed in New York City this summer in between Pattinson's dual filming spots for the Twilight saga. In August, once Remember Me is done filming, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will begin, and The Twilight Saga: New Moon (which wrapped up filming just recently) is to be released on November 20th of this year.
