Not a good boy (but that makes him even better)

Un efecto secundario (positivo) de la fama de Rob es que se están relanzando sus películas antiguas. Sobre todo How to Be, The Bad Mother's Handbook, The Haunted Airman y también The Summer House. Es un corto de 12 minutos que rodó en 2006 en tan sólo una semana y que se podrá descargar en iTunes a partir del 13 de Julio por $1'99.

Click and wonder what is that woman doing with his glorious nape? (and look at those sideburrrrrrrrns!!!!!!!!!!)

Coincidiendo con el re-lanzamiento, MTV publica un artículo (entero en el link) que incluye una entrevista con la directora, Daisy Gilli - lo escriben mal...

First-time director Daisy Gills said she actually cast Rob because she was recommended him by Campbell Mitchell, who had worked on props for another of his early projects, "The Haunted Airman."

"He said, this guy is amazing, and he's really nice, and I think he'd be really up for working on a short film," Gills told MTV News. "I saw a picture of him and I thought, he's fantastic."

Up until that point, Rob's costar Talulah Riley was best known for her work in Joe Wright's "Pride & Prejudice," and hadn't yet starred in her big hit, "Pirate Radio" (known as "The Boat That Rocked" in the UK). Gills hired a cast director to find her an actress to play the short's main character, Jane, and thought Talulah was the perfect fit.

But it was the chemistry between the two that really helped the film work. At 13 minutes in length, "The Summer House" follows Jane as she flees to France to stay with her aunt after her boyfriend Richard (Rob) dumps her for another girl. However, he follows her to the summer house to try to win her back and, on the night of the moon landing, tries to make his move. The result of his efforts helps Jane realize that -- in Gills' words -- love isn't black and white.

Gills felt the character of Richard was a struggle for Rob, because he had to play someone so different from himself. "He's quite a gentle person. He's a really nice person. And he has to play quite a not very nice character, and I think he struggled with that," Gills said. "He wasn't playing a role that he was particularly comfortable with, but he still manages to have a real presence: brooding, slightly menacing. You're never quite sure whether he wants her because he wants to have sex with her or because he loves her. And I think he delivers that brilliantly."

After watching the short, we have to agree with her on Rob's performance, and
"Twilight" fans will see a little bit of what would become Edward Cullen in Rob's portrayal of Richard. But, beyond the great acting, the set and costume design were our favorite parts of the film. The short is based on a short story of the same name, and Gills said they were able to film for free in the summer house that inspired the story.

The dresses are vintage 1960s as well because Gills borrowed them from her mother, though the gorgeous green dress Talulah wears at the end was a creation of their costume designer. The pearls she wears at the end of the film were borrowed by the French actress, Marianne Borgo, who plays her aunt in the film, just like Jane would have borrowed them from her aunt in the film.

Parte de Edward Cullen e? pues se me ocurren un par de escenas donde estaría bien ver esa parte de él ;)

Gracias RPLife
