Will “Cosmopolis” Propel Robert Pattinson’s Career?

A recent article from Metrowny is discussing Robert Pattinson’s upcoming role in Cosmopolis. You can read it after the cut and don’t forget to let us know your thoughts on Rob’s most recent career choice.

Robert Pat­tin­son has been given his chance to expand his fan base and vault him­self into the realm of such great actors as Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise. By replac­ing Colin Far­rell in the movie Cos­mopo­lis Rob Pat­tin­son now has a film that can help him make the tran­si­tion from a heart­throb in fan­tasy films to a seri­ous actor in a block­buster film.

Cos­mopo­lis is a film based on the book writ­ten by Don DeLillo. The movie is about the story of Eric Packer, a 28 year old multi-billionaire asset man­ager who makes an odyssey across mid­town Man­hat­tan in order to get a hair­cut. Dur­ing the course of the day Parker ends up bet­ting his entire for­tune in the mar­ket against the Yen and ends up in trou­ble with peo­ple gun­ning for him. The plot takes place dur­ing one days time.
Pat­tin­son will star in the movie with Mar­ion Cott­ti­lard and Paul Giamati.

This is a great oppor­tu­nity for Robert Pat­tin­son to show that he is more than just a pretty face that can act in a fan­tasy film. I under­stand that Pat­tin­son is also set to star in Water for Ele­phants, and that film, with a good per­for­mance, could advance his career as well, but to be the star of an action/thriller film could do more for his career. He has already shown that he can play a sen­si­tive char­ac­ter with a love inter­est in the Twi­light films so Water for Ele­phants won’t give us too much more of an insight into his act­ing abil­ity, but if he can pull off being the star of an action/thriller then the sky is the limit for Pat­tin­son because it means he could act in any movie regard­less of char­ac­ter or plot.
