Rob Pattinson’s film The Haunted Airman is finally getting released on DVD in the US. MTV has an article about the film and its release, calling it Pattinson’s “lost” film.
“The Haunted Airman” premieres on DVD on Tuesday, a release date that has taken even RPattz’s most loyal fans (who’ve scrambled to see such little-known flicks as “How to Be” and “Little Ashes”) by surprise. It has had little to no publicity on any of Rob’s fan sites, and there is little written about the film online.
“This Halloween, ‘Twilight’ heartthrob Robert Pattinson takes a break from playing the vampire Edward Cullen and tries life as a human in a spine-tingling WWII-era ghost story,” begins a press release sent to reporters this week announcing the film’s impending release. “The supernatural thriller ‘The Haunted Airman’ stars Pattinson as a wounded Royal Air Force pilot tormented by psychological horrors and a slow descent into madness. Julian Sands (’Ocean’s Thirteen,’ ‘24?) and Rachael Stirling (’The Young Victoria,’ ‘Still Crazy’) add to the suspense with supporting roles. The film, based on the best-selling 1948 novel ‘The Haunting of Toby Jugg’ by Dennis Wheatley, premieres to U.S. audiences on DVD via E1 Entertainment on October 13.”
Considering that even his not-made films are followed with a fervor, the big question is a simple one: Where did this “lost” Robert Pattinson movie come from? The answer may be as spooky as the ghost story itself.
Filmed five years ago, “The Haunted Airman” was one of Pattinson’s first paid gigs as an actor and was shot in the U.K. as “The Haunting of Toby Jugg.” The 68-minute movie aired on BBC television in October of 2006 — two years before “Twilight” would make Pattinson a household name. Cast in the title role, RPattz plays a disabled WWII soldier.
