Pattinson keen to boost star power with ‘Tenet’, ‘Batman’ after working in indie films

Robert Pattinson says his decision to do two back-to-back blockbusters in “Tenet” and “Batman” had to do with bringing commercial viability back to his career after doing a series of independent movies.

Pattinson, who played a small role in “Harry Potter” movies before rising to fame with the “Twilight” series, has always worked with the directors of his choice but largely in indie space.

Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” will be his first major studio film after 2012 and it is to be followed by Matt Reeves’ 2021 comic book tentpole “The Batman”.

I started the beginning of last year with no job. And I was calling my agent and just being like I had gotten good reviews in stuff and I was like, I thought this was a pretty good year, and I’m starting the year as I’ve just done a pile of trash’,” Pattinson told GQ in an interview.

The actor said his agent told him that he did not get any major movies because everyone thought he was not interested in them.

Pattinson, 34, said not many people back an actor in the industry without commercial viability.

“It’s just something which you (can) kind of rely on a little bit more,” Pattinson said about his decision to return to studio films.

“The problem which I was finding was, however much I loved them (indie) movies I was doing, no one sees them. And so it’s kind of this frightening thing because I don’t know how viable this is for a career… I don’t know how many people there actually are in the industry who are willing to back you without any commercial viability whatsoever,” he said.
