Rumored Release Date for The Rover

Looks like we have a rumored release date for The Rover in France … and this May 21st date makes me think Cannes is in this film’s near future … Unfortunately, the source that first tweeted about the release date has now come back on their word, saying nothing is official yet … SO my guess is that they are waiting for the official Cannes selection to make the official announcement.

From RPLife:

THE ROVER avec Guy Pearce et Robert Pattinson sortira en France le 21 mai prochain ! #TheRover
