Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe go mad in the Toronto International Film Festival flick, “The Lighthouse”.
In a brand-new look at the dark drama, RPattz and Dafoe star as two lighthouse keepers trying to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. The film, directed by Robert Eggers, was completely shot in black and white.
This is Eggers’ first project since 2016’s “The Witch”, which followed a similarly dark storyline.
“However much I love Robert [Eggers], there was a point where I did five takes walking across the beach,” Pattinson said about filming. “And after a while I was like, ‘What the f**k is going on? I feel like you’re just spraying a fire hose in my face.’ And he was like, ‘I AM spraying a fire hose in your face.’ It was like some kind of torture. It definitely creates an interesting energy.”
“The Lighthouse” premieres at TIFF before a wider release on October 18.
