Robert Pattinson heading to New Zealand ?

Stuff.co.nz reports -

Teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson is heading to New Zealand to film a new movie, according to reports.
The Twilight star could be in New Zealand later this year or early next year to film Unbound Captives, a $125 million western about Comanche Indians, according to Woman's Day and several overseas news sites.
A spokesperson for Film New Zealand had no comment to make about the movie.

Unbound Captives will be the first film directed by Madeleine Stowe, also stars Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman, and has a release date scheduled for the end of 2010.
It is reportedly set in 1859, and is about a woman who enlists the help of another man to track down her children after they were stolen and her husband murdered by a Comanche war party. Pattinson would play one of her children.

Pattinson, 23, is currently one of the world's biggest movie stars thanks to his role in the Twilight movies, an adaption of the successful Stephenie Myer book series.
The second part of the trilogy, New Moon, is released in New Zealand on November 19.

But it seems Pattinson's role in Unbound Captives, parts of which will also be filmed in Mexico, is still in the planning stages.
"I hope I'm doing a Western with Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman, called Unbound Captives," Pattinson said during a recent New Moon press conference in Los Angeles, according to Movies.about.com.
"They've got to try to work around everybody's schedules and stuff."

Screencrave.com reported Pattinson as saying he would speak Comanche for the entire film.
Radaronline.com reported parts of the movie would be filmed in New Zealand.
Filming on the fourth Twilight film, Breaking Dawn, is scheduled for the middle of next year.
Pattinson is said to be dating his Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart.
