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.
