A source close to the film speaks to and confirms Rob’s involvement along with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz! How exciting!

Robert Pattinson‘s movie The Unbound Captives has been in the works for a while now, but was having trouble getting off the ground. Last week the director Madeleine Stowe told the San Antonio Express-News that she’d start work on the movie next year and now can confirm they intend to begin filming in the spring! We spoke to a source close to the flick who gave us details.

“There’s not a definite start date as elements of the movie are still being worked on,” explains our insider. “But as things are going now we intend to start shooting in the late spring.”

So where will they film? Our spy was a little more coy about giving out these details. “There will be one location and it will not be in LA,” reveals the source. “The goal is not to move and with it being a period piece we will not be using Los Angeles. As for where the location will be, that is currently TBD because, as I mentioned earlier, there are elements of the movie still being worked on which will determine the actual location. But it’s definitely not in LA.”

And are Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Rob still on board? “There have been no changes to the cast. Hugh, Rachel Weisz and Robert are all attached.”

Madeline Stowe revealed to the San Antonio Express-News that she came up with the idea for what she calls “a large romantic Western” while at her cattle ranch in the Texas Hill Country. “I heard about children who were abducted by Comanche Indians [in the 1800s] and became so acculturated that they had a hard time returning. Our ranch had a real history. When I lived there, I felt a certain way about Texas that I hadn’t seen filmed yet.” It sounds like it could be filmed in Texas!

We’re so happy that this movie is moving forward and we can’t wait to see Rob working with fellow big stars like Rachel and Hugh! What do you guys think about Rob’s project? And what other details are you anxious to know about it? Check back for more The Unbound Captives updates!
