Many of Robert Pattinson’s fans have been wondering what’s next for the star after the Twilight series comes to a close and if the latest reports are any indication, we do not think he will disappoint!
According to the rumor mills, Rob has quite a big change coming with his next big project, that is if everything pans out.
Recent reports claim that America’s favorite sparkly vampire is in talks to star in the film Cosmopolis, which is based on the book by Don De Lillo and will be directed by David Cronenberg.
The film follows Eric Packer (potentially played by Rob), a multi-billionaire in finances who is targeted by assassins.
As the story goes in the book, we will follow Eric Packer for a day when he decides to get a haircut and everything goes crazy.
“He has sex with two women, his art consultant and a bodyguard,” according to a review in Publisher’s Weekly. “He is hit in the face with a pie by a protester. He knows he is being stalked, and the novel stages a final convergence between the ex-tycoon and his stalker.”
And that is just the tip of the iceberg. This would be a massive step away from his character as Edward Cullen and would be completely different from the roles that we have previously seen him in.
Although nothing has been decided, we understand that they are in negotiations now to try and make Cosmopolis Rob’s next big project.
Other stars that have been tied to the movie are Paul Giamatti and Colin Farrell.
So how do you think Rob would play this role? Do you think that it is too different from his previous projects or do you think this is just the type of role you would love to see him play?
Robert Pattinson’s next films to be released are Bel Ami with Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci, Water For Elephants with Reese Witherspoon and of course, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 1 where he will reprise his role as Edward Cullen alongside Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner.
