'Hate Mail' Spoiler: Find Out Which Character Rob Pattinson Could Play in New Film

Robert Pattinson Hate Mail

We’ve read the ‘Hate Mail’ script and it’s definitely going to be an interesting movie! Here’s a breakdown of the characters, two of whom are played by Robert Pattinson and Scarlett Johansson.

Robert Pattinson hasn’t slowed down since the Twilight franchise, and now he’s reportedly signed on to a new movie with Scarlett Johansson called Hate Mail. HollywoodLife.com got an exclusive look at the script and although we don’t want to give too much away we have a few spoilers for you!

The movie is similar to that of Love Actually and Valentine’s Day in the multiple characters and storylines throughout the film that (in a way) come together at the end. However, a romantic comedy this is not. The film focuses on how different characters react to hate mail and it definitely has its dramatic moments. Here is a brief breakdown of the main characters. Our best guess after reading the script is that Rob will play Josh and Scarlett will play his girlfriend Kate, but there’s also a chance he could be Joel.

Kate (late 20s) and Josh (late 20s):
Kate and Josh are two good-looking actors in a serious relationship. They are starring in a Broadway show together, and Josh is a little insecure about it because he’s known more for being a movie star than a theater actor. He also finds himself wrapped up in a tabloid scandal, shortly after Kate’s own scandal finishes making headlines.

Joel (early 30s) & Peggy (mid 20s):
Joel is a handsome but awkward guy who has a crush on his co-worker Peggy and tries to work up the nerve to ask her out. He seems uncomfortable in social situations, but has a good heart.

Kevin (early 30s) & Patti (30s): Kevin is a war veteran who plays in a garage band. He is still haunted by his past. He currently works as a garbageman and is married to Patti. They have a son named Patrick, 13.

Jay (40s): Jay is a sports radio show host who acts angry and loud in public but is going through a difficult and lonely time in his life. He has a secret that is unveiled as the movie progresses.

Ben (14) and Sara (30s): Sara is a single mom raising Ben, a teenager who seems shy at school but works out his aggression online. He has some scary violent tendencies brewing under the surface.

Shivani (late 40s) and Peter (40s): Shivani is a successful surgeon who starts becoming unraveled by anonymous hate mail sent to her. Peter is her boyfriend, who has a peripheral part in the movie.

Who do you guys think Rob will play? Let us know in your comments!

kate & josh, I think George Clooney will direct this, not Phil Alden Robinson, the film soundtrack will be mostly hard rock, not pop hits.

This is going to be a bomb of a mobie. Dull…I really hope he chooses not to do it, but should he–I’d support him either way. Best of luck.

If Rob is cast in this movie, I can easily see him playing Joel or Josh! He can play Joel very well as he did an excellent job in Bad Mothers Handbook playing the awkward geeky boy interested in helping a pregnant teenage friend who was dumped by the father of her child. Rob also has stated in several interviews how he feels awkward in larger parties he goes to….sticking with only the people who he goes with to the party. I would think he’ll probably get the role of Josh. The age is stated as late 20’s which is closer to his age and he had experience in a London stage play so could tap into that experience. He, like any A lister movie star, might also be wondering if he’ll always be known for certain film roles despite any other roles (theatre or film) he takes on.

If he does this movie I really hope he plays one of the early 30 somethings. The 1 late 20something role doesn’t exactly sound like he’d have to stretch as an actor. Joel would actually be a fun role for him.

Last I heard he hasn’t confirmed this movie.
I could actually see him playing Joel.
He would be fun to watch playing that awkward asking out a crush, and I have seen a lot of Rob sites have him as being awkwardly cute/funny.

yeah, from what ive seen this is a rumor that he is going to be in the movie.
he has to start that rover movie soon, and sometime after that he is doing mission blacklist movie where he plays a solider.
i dont know how he is suppose to film rover in australia the same time he is said to be filming hate mail in another country.

I think maybe you should wait until someone from his team confirms that he is doing this movie. So far it’s an internet rumor. One person mentioned it.
