Rob became so passionate about the story he signed on to help produce the movie.
"About two-thirds of the way thru I just didn't want it to be messed around with," said Pattinson. "I thought from the beginning, it's an odd tone. It didn't fit into a teen movie category. I didn't want it to be compromised in any way. So I just wanted to help maintain the film, if anyone tries to mess around with it, I want to do my bit to protect it."
His initial taste of working behind the camera has whetted Rob's appetite for more.
"I'd love to do a film as a producer right from the beginning, said Pattinson." I'm hoping to do that in the next few years. I don't like the vulnerability of being an actor. Most people think, 'You're an actor and you are on that side of the camera. That's where you are.' I can't take that because that's where I want to be. I want to be everywhere."
"Remember Me" offers an ending that's sure to surprise audiences. And that's one thing that most attracted Robert to this script.
"You should always try to make something to think about. I don't want to make stuff just for entertainment value," said Pattinson. "I don't find myself very entertaining."
Millions of his fans would beg to differ. Rob's staying busy, along with his commitment to the "Twilight" movies, he has three other films in production.
"Remember Me" opens in theaters on Friday.
