Robert Pattinson Slated to Play in Unbound Captives

Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz and Robert Pattinson will star in the 19th century set film "Unbound Captives", which is the directorial debut of actress Madeleine Stowe.

The script was co-written by Stowe along with husband Brian Benben back in the early ’90s, but the film never got made after Stowe declined a $5 million deal because she wanted to star in the lead female role herself. Fast forward 15 years, after realizing she would never be able to star in the role, she cast Weisz in the role she originally wanted, and decided to go ahead and direct the film herself.

Weisz will play a woman whose husband is killed and her two children kidnapped by a Comanche war party in 1859. She is rescued by a frontiersman, to be played by Jackman. Pattinson will play [one of] the son[s]. Click here for more.

Thanks to here is a look Robert Pattinson’s role in Unbound Captives.

Character Name: PHINEAS
  • Age: The character is shown first at age 10, then again at approximately 17
  • As indicated in information published on the Internet, Phineas was kidnapped as a child and assimilated in a Comanche tribe.
  • Phineas (all descriptions here are of the character at age 17) is described as having long hair and pierced ears, presumably in the 19th-century Comanche style.
  • Virtually all of his lines are in Comanche.
  • The character’s Comanche name is Tsomo, which means, “bead”.
  • Yes, he rides a horse…bareback. He rides quite a bit, actually.
  • Although the character does have a few flirtatious scenes, this is not a romantic-type role.
    The older Phineas is in the latter parts of the script, perhaps the last third. It is definitely a supporting role.

Unbound Captives will be put into production by Hyde Park Entertainment at the end of the year.
