It’s been soooo long since I’ve posted about R-Patty, but finally some real news. He just signed on to star in the new movie “Memoirs”, a romantic drama about 2 lovers trying to make it work in the face of family tragedies. Allen Coulter of “Hollywoodland” is set to direct and Jenny Lumet, “Rachel Getting Married” screenwriter, will rewrite the original screenplay. She is awesome.
Rob is R-Patty
The biggest surprise (not really) of all is that Summit Entertainment is going to lay down the cash to get this to a theater near you. Dollar, dollar, bill, Summit knows how to capitalize on the R-Patty fan’s Sanrio wallets. Kudos to them. No word yet on who Rob’s love interest will be, but rest assured whoever the lucky lady is , she will be harassed and judged by women around the world for years to come. Ask poor Kristen Stewart.
In a shocking turn of events, the “Twilight” dvd sold over 3 million copies on it’s Saturday release date. It joins the rank of the top 5 highest grossing single day dvd releases in history, keeping sexy company with Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Harry Potter 5, and Dark Knight.
On a side note, kudos to Summit Entertainment for holding their own in the face of the big companies like Disney and Warner Brothers. Alongside the top selling “Twilight”, they also put out the number one movie at the box office this weekend, “Knowing”. Drink a pint of blood for the underdog as you click on Fandango to preorder a few tickets to “Transformers 2”.
