Pattinson to Play an "Amoral Character" in Bel Ami

Pattinson to Play an "Amoral Character" in Bel Ami

The pile of projects on Robert Pattinson's plate just keeps getting higher and higher. In addition to filming Remember Me (which he's currently talking up at Cannes), he was recently cast in Unbound Captives alongside Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz and now he'll star in an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's story Bel Ami. The movie is set to shoot next year in Paris (ooh la la) and Pattinson says this role is quite different for him, claiming "[i]t's a totally amoral character."

While in Cannes, Pattinson chatted some more about the other projects, saying that the female lead in Remember Me has yet to be cast and whoever does come in "needs to be literally inspirational." (Anyone want to audition?!) Adorably, Pattinson also praised Remember Me screenwriter Jenny Lumet (who also wrote Rachel Getting Married), saying "I have no qualms saying that she's a genius."

As for Twilight, Pattinson assures fans that Edward will be featured enough in New Moon, as apparently he "will log screen time as Bella's 'hallucinations.'" In a separate interview, Pattinson confirmed that he plans to be in the fourth film, Breaking Dawn, but that his schedule is so busy they have yet to figure out when, exactly, Breaking Dawn will be in production.
