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.

I'm actually rather surprised that Breaking Dawn will be made. For some reason, I remember Meyer stating that it'd be difficult to make the characters seem believable due to how they're portrayed. Maybe I will have to check it out when they do release it....

he's such a cutie! I absolutely adore him despite the fact that I despise twilight and refuse to watch the movie. maybe it's because he's actually a good actor - very rare nowadays. anyhoo, quite intrigued by the Bel Ami movie - I love de Maupassant and I'm assuming he's going to be Georges Duroy which will be awesome...

I agree Aitch. Drive by hater comments irritate me to no end. There is a reason Rob is everywhere. Because he is worth the hype.

Sarah: Rob is Not in "Rachel getting Married." The movie he will be filming this summer in NYC, is being written by Jenny Lumet, who also wrote "RGM" To everyone: If you do not like Rob, please don't click on any more stories about him and write nasty comments OK?! If you don't like him, that should not be hard to do ---right!!!

He's choosing very interesting projects and I'm excited to see him playing diverse roles. I still have yet to see Rachel Getting Married.

Ugh, what is with everyone's obsession with this guy?! He is NOT GOODLOOKING. Look at that creepy expression on his face! The man is fugly. And he's a terrible actor. I'm getting so sick of hearing about him.

Bel Ami is a NOVEL not a short story!!! And I liked it very much though I'm not sure about Robert as Georges.

see they would have been smart to lock all the actors down for ALL of the movies when there was talk about optioning #3. oh well. i'm really happy though that he's got all these different types of roles in the works. i feel like he could have easily gotten locked into one thing and now at least we know that he's got range (or at least trying for it)
