Robert Pattinson to star in David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’

For a change the vampire will be seen as a high profile human in his upcoming movie. Robert Pattinson, the ‘Twilight’ star will be portraying the character of a very famous financier Eric Packer in ‘Cosmopolis’.

The film will be directed by David Cronenberg. In the movie the character of Robert will be seen betting all his money against ‘Yen’, the Japanese currency and washes his hands over his life, yes he is assassinated. The movie is based on the novel written by Don DeLillo.

Others who are expected to star in the film are Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti. The filming of ‘Cosmopolis’ is scheduled to begin from the end of this year.

Robert’s next projects include ‘Water For Elephants’ in which he will be starring opposite Reese Witherspoon. The film will be directed by Francis Lawrence and it is the adaptation of one of the novels of Sara Gruen.

As far as ‘Cosmopolis’ is concerned, 24 year old Pattinson is a huge fan of both Cronenberg as well as DeLillo and hence signed the role as a challenge.
