Robert Pattinson To Star In David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis'

Robert Pattinson's time playing brooding vampire Edward Cullen is drawing to a close -- he's filming the saga's two-part finale "Breaking Dawn" as we speak -- but it doesn't appear the young actor's career is going to fizzle anytime soon.

He's already wrapped the lead role in the eagerly anticipated movie adaptation of the bestselling novel "Water for Elephants" (due in theaters April 22), and now Deadline is reporting that R.Pattz has snagged the lead in writer-director David Cronenberg's latest film "Cosmopolis."

A Cronenberg flick -- and one based on a Don DeLillo novel, at that -- isn't exactly in the "Twilight" fan base's wheelhouse, but taking the role is a strong career move for Pattinson. Cronenberg's films tend to be bluntly violent, visceral and emotionally wrenching, and "Cosmopolis" promises to challenge Pattinson and give him the chance to prove that he can play more than the tortured heartthrob.

Pattinson will tackle the role of Eric Packer, a 28-year-old billionaire asset manager who bets -- and bets big -- against the yen on a tumultuous day in the stock market. The movie will follow Packer on this fateful day as his limousine trip to get a haircut turns into a strange odyssey across Manhattan marked by various run-ins with his wife, traffic jams caused by presidential motorcades, encounters with some very overly sexed women and showdowns with two men bent on killing him.

Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are reportedly up for roles in the film as well, though nothing has been confirmed.

A successful fantasy series, a lead role in a Cronenberg film -- if Pattinson doesn't watch out, he just might become the next Viggo Mortensen.

Several sources are reporting that Robert Pattinson is in negotiations for the lead role in yet another novel adaptation, Cosmopolis. This is a fantastic oportunity for Rob and you can find out more about the role and the upcoming movie after the cut. We will update the site as soon as we get official confirmation.

From Gossip Cop:

It’s not a done deal quite yet.

A source in Pattinson’s camp tells Gossip Cop they’re in “negotiations.”

Barring a hitch in the talks, Cosmopolis will be Pattinson’s next major role.

The movie, based on a novel by Don DeLillo, follows a young financial whiz named Eric Packer as he journeys across a major city by limo during one tumultuous day.

Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are reportedly attached to the project.

From Deadline
obert Pattinson has booked his first major lead for when he completes The Twilight Saga. Pattinson will star in Cosmopolis, the Don DeLillo novel adaptation that David Cronenberg wrote and will direct. Pattinson, who just starred with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz in Fox 2000′s Francis Lawrence-directed adaptation of the Sara Gruen novel Water For Elephants, will play Eric Packer. A financial wunderkind, Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place. Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are also reportedly doing the film, but those same reports had Colin Farrell poised to take the lead role.

'Breaking Dawn,' 'Super 8' Among 2011's Most Enigmatic Movies

We dig for clues about a spate of eagerly anticipated flicks that filmmakers have shrouded in secrecy.

"Breaking Dawn - Part 1," November 18
What, you say, everyone on your block knows how the "Twilight" saga ends? Well, sure, we know the plot. But do we know where "Part 1" will end and "Part 2" pick up? Do we know which characters some of the fresh franchise faces will be playing? Do we know how director Bill Condon will handle the famously bloody birth scene, and if it will even be in the first film? And heck, is there still a chance the movie could be released in 3-D?


Our Top 5 Films For 2011: 'Water for Elephants' Takes Center Ring At No. 3

When the name Robert Pattinson comes up for discussion, a lot of people don't remember him for his small part as Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix." Only the die-hard fans have watched the tear-jerking "Remember Me" over and over, and did anyone ever see "Little Ashes"? The 24-year-old British heartthrob is best known for playing Edward Cullen in "The Twilight Saga," dating costar Kristen Stewart, and to haters and skeptics alike, is seen as just another hot guy that likes to suck blood.

Movie buffs willing to give Rob the benefit of the doubt have been holding their breath to see him prove himself as a serious actor. We're pretty sure 2011 is the year he'll do just that. Yes, he'll be reprising his vampire persona in "Breaking Dawn" and showing a more serious side in the period piece "Bel Ami," but his role in our No. 3 film for 2011, "Water for Elephants," is what will solidify his place in Hollywood's shining spotlight.

It's hard not to be excited for the April 22 release. The film adaptation of Sara Gruen's No. 1 New York Times best selling novel follows Jacob Jankowski, a white collar veterinarian student who drops out of Cornell during his senior finals following a family tragedy. He finds himself accidentally joining the rag-tag Benzini Brothers Circus after jumping a midnight train and zig-zags across the country, making unlikely friends, finding forbidden love and seeing the dark side of the greatest show on earth. It's the stuff every good movie is made of. Oh, did we forget to mention that Rob looks smokin' hot, too?

The movie has already garnered a little bit of Oscar buzz for Rob's performance, and the trailer alone is enough to give you goose-bumps. Academy Award winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz helm the film with Rob, which promises to give you the same thrill of finding a prize in a box of Cracker Jacks.
