Robert Patinson says he lied to Christopher Nolan to audition for The Batman
Robert Pattinson also said working in Tenet helped his The Batman audition as he had gotten extremely fit from trying to keep up with co-star John David Washington.
In an interview with The Irish Times, the British star said that he cited family emergency for his absence from the sets of Tenet, but the filmmaker was quick to figure out the truth.
“It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies. And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff.
“So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test – I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a family emergency’ he said: ‘You’re doing the Batman audition, aren’t you?'” Pattinson said.
The 34-year-old actor added that Nolan’s much-anticipated espionage thriller helped him in The Batman audition as he had gotten extremely fit from trying to keep up with co-star John David Washington, who is also a former football player, on sets.
Tenet also features Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Caine, Clemence Poesy, Dimple Kapadia and Himesh Patel.
While Pattinson is looking forward to the release of Tenet, which has been delayed due the coronavirus pandemic, he was shooting for Warner Bros’ DC superhero movie when the production was shut down amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Batman, which also stars Zoe Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano and Jeffrey Wright, will release in October 2021.
