Robert Pattinson Signs Up For The Band Biopic!

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersRobert Pattinson


This is soooo up his alley!

Robert Pattinson has just signed on to appear in an upcoming project about '70s rock band The Band.

The legendary band, who played with Bob Dylan was founded in the 1960s by the late Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, Robbie Robertson and drummer Levon Helm.

In a recent interview, R-Pattz confirmed:

"I'm going to do a movie about The Band, the one that played with (Bob) Dylan: a beautiful script about the nature of songwriting."

And since Rob is quite the talented little musician himself, we have a feeling this will become a true passion project of his.

Crossing our fingers he gets to use his own singing voice in the movie! Swooooon!

    Oh come on. Robertson is nothing. Levon Helm was the one and only heart of the Band. The rest were poseurs. How the hell can you sing the Night they Drove ol Dixie Down when you're from freaking Canada? A: you can't. How can you sing American blue grass and country with soul when you're from freaking Canada? Canada has no soul and it ain't in the US south last time I checked.

    While Levon was from Arkansas, most of the other members of The Band were Canadian, so not totally crazy to have a Canadian actor involved… Still not sure how I feel about this project though!
