Robert Pattinson Is Getting ‘Unbound’ With Jackman

By: Betsy Waldman / May 13, 2009

Robert Pattinson just got a birthday present in the form of a new movie role.

Variety reports that the Twilight heartthrob—who turns 23 today—will star in the upcoming period drama Unbound Captives with his karaoke buddy Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz.

The film, which was written by and will be directed by Madeleine Stowe, is about a woman (played by Weisz) whose husband is killed and her two children kidnapped by a Comanche Indian war party in 1859. Coming to her rescue is hearty frontiersman Jackman, and RPattz will play Weisz’s son.

Sounds like a hit!
