The Telegraph (UK) talks about Robert Pattinson “rebooting his image” with Bel Ami & Cosmopolis   Leave a comment

From the Telegraph (UK):

Either Robert Pattinson is a very smart young man, or he has an astute agent. Maybe both. Whatever the truth, he’s moving on rapidly from the wildly successful Twilight franchise and rebooting his image.
The process begins in March, when Bel Ami, a reworking of the Maupassant novel, opens here. Pattinson plays a young upstart in late 19th-century Paris who works his way up the social ladder through sexual liaisons with the wives of influential men. Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas, both old enough to be mums of the Twilight fan base, are his co-stars, along with Christina Ricci.
Later this year we should be seeing Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg from Don DeLillo’s novel of 2003. It is 24 hours in the life of a young Manhattanite (played by Pattinson) who has made a huge killing in the money markets. No one’s film career has ever been hurt by working for Cronenberg, who told me recently how highly he rates Pattinson. Clearly, he’ll be around for a while.
