Yo Ho Rob

Two weeks ago Robert Pattinson was pap-snapped beef-caking himself up on the beach and we wondered what he might be needing them pectorals for, work-wise - we couldn't quite figure it out. But maybe now we know - he has joined the cast of The Lighthouse, Willem Dafoe's movie about, uh, a lighthouse, that The Witch director Robert Eggers is directing. We already told you about this movie right here but we've got a lot more info now - THR is calling it "fantasy horror" and it is apparently "set in the world of old sea-faring myths, taking place in Nova Scotia in the early 20th century."

That sounds much more in Eggers' wheelhouse than what I was originally picturing. Anyway now I'm imagining Rob all ripped with old-timey hand-drawn sailor tattoos and I am not mad, I am not mad at all. Since Eggers is all about nailing realism with his period film-making  details I recommend this book to him, a favorite of mine, for this project. It's not specific to what he's doing but it should give him some ideas worth thinking about, anyway.
