New role: Olivier Assayas' Gangster Pic 'Idol's Eye'

It has already been a busy 2014 for Robert Pattinson, and he's not slowing down any time soon. The actor will be leaving the Cannes Film Festival feeling pretty good, receiving good notices both "The Rover" (review here) and "Maps To The Stars" (review here). And not only does he have promising projects in the can and still to come — Werner Herzog's "Queen Of The Desert" and Anton Corbijn's "Life" — on the horizon, he has James Gray's "The Lost City Of Z" and a possible project with Harmony Korine. And now you can add a movie with Olivier Assayas to the list.

Last week, the filmmaker revealed he had Pattinson lined up to star in his next film, and this week, the actor confirms his involvement in an interview with La Nouvel Observateur (watch below). Pattinson says he'll be shooting the film in November, and shares that it's about a group of men who rob a porn pawn store only to find out it's actually a mafia front. And from that description, it sounds a lot like "Hubris," the project Assayas lined up last year. In fact we'd wager it's the same one, but it seems there's been a title change.

Le Monde (via Looking For More) reports that the film is titled "Idol's Eye" and it will have a budget of $30 million. And we already know that the film is based on a 2007 Playboy article called "Boosting The Big Tuna" by Hillel Levin and is inspired by actual events, in which a bunch of regular criminals accidentally robbed Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo.

In fact, Assayas has confirmed this himself adding that it will be his first U.S. production. "My next film will be in the U.S. We are shooting in Chicago and it’s a genre movie based on a real story, called 'Idol's Eye,' the name of a famous diamond," he told THR. "If everything goes according to plan it should be shooting by late fall."

So, he's already filmed

Werner Herzog's 'Queen of the Desert' (with Nicole Kidman, Damian Lewis and James Franco)
Anton Corbjin's 'Life' (with Dane DeHaan and Sir Ben Kingsley)

And his upcoming projects are

Brady Corbet's 'Childhood of a Leader' (with Juliette Binoche and Tim Roth)
James Gray's 'The Lost City of Z' (with Benedict Cumberbatch)
Harmony Korine's unknown project
Oliver Assayas' 'Idol's Eye’ and hopefully
James Marsh's 'Hold on to Me' (with Carey Mulligan)
