Rob Pattinson to Star in Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’

Robert Pattinson is taking the lead role in David Cronenberg’s new film, Cosmopolis.

Deadline reports that Twilight’s Pattinson is taking off his vampire gear to star in Cosmopolis, which is based on Don DeLillo’s novel.

Pattinson will play Eric Packer, a financial whiz who makes a risky financial move that could lead to his own death.

Colin Farrell was reportedly supposed to get the role of Packer, but left the project.

Pattinson, on the other hand, looks like he’s leaving his days as Edward Cullen to take on a more mature role. Pattinson reportedly picked the project because he admires both the work of Canadian Cronenberg, as well DeLillo.

Cosmopolis is also said to feature Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti.

The film is set to be released next year.

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
