After photos of Robert Pattinson hanging out in Chicago hit Twitter, we were bombarded with requests from fans hopeful this meant he would begin filming his next movie, Idol’s Eye, in Chicago soon.
But, unfortunately, it looks like that isn’t going to happen. The movie was slated to film in Chicago when it was first announced earlier this year but since then it has been confirmed the shoot will actually take place in Toronto.
According to the Chicago Film Office, “‘Idol’s Eye’ was to be filmed in Toronto. Maybe some 2nd unit filming [in Chicago] later this year, but not confirmed.” And, the Toronto Film Office still has the movie slated to film there from Oct. 2o to Dec. 20.
Rob might have been in Chicago over the weekend, but he didn’t stay very long. Yesterday, Pattinson was spotted shopping with his girlfriend FKA twigs in Paris.
This will mark the fourth movie Rob has filmed in Toronto in recent years. Cosmopolis, Maps to the Stars, and Life were also shot there.
