Robert Pattinson revealed “the only thing [he’s] approved to say “on the next science fiction film by Christopher Nolan Principle.
In an interview with GQ, the actor spoke of the “crazy” project and said that he was unable to remember or explain his intrigue.
Asked to detail the story of Principle, Pattinson said, “Even if I had seen it, I really don’t know if I would be able to do it … I was just thinking, I just called my assistant 20 minutes ago: ‘What what i say? I have no idea. “

But the Good time star was able to confirm a key detail of his character: “He is not a time traveler. There is actually no time to travel [in the film]. It’s, for example, the only thing that I approved. “
After the film’s first trailer, many people speculated that the film would involve some sort of time travel story.
Pattinson, who stars in the film alongside John David Washington, Michael Caine and Elizabeth Debicki, said the film used a crew of around 500 people, 250 of whom flew together in different countries for filming.
“In every country there is, like, a huge scene of scenery,” he said, “which is like the highlight of a normal movie. In each country. “
Christopher Nolan responded to Pattinson’s remarks in GQsaying the actor was “a little f *** ing with you.”
“But he is also disarmingly honest,” said the filmmaker. “It’s sort of the two things at the same time. When you see the film, you will understand. Rob’s reading of the script was extremely precise. But he also understood the ambiguities of the film and the possibilities that emerge in the mind around the story. “
Principle is currently scheduled for theatrical release July 17, 2020.
