Twilight star Robert Pattinson has signed on to appear in an upcoming film project about rock legends The Band

Few details are known about the movie, but the British actor reveals it will focus on the group's craft more than anything else. 

In an interview with French magazine Les InRockuptibles, Pattinson is quoted as saying, "I'm going to do a movie about The Band, the one that played with (Bob) Dylan: a beautiful script about the nature of songwriting." 

The Band was founded in the 1960s by the late Rick Danko, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel, Robbie Robertson and drummer Levon Helm, who lost his battle with throat cancer in April, and would regularly perform with folk icon Bob Dylan.
