Robert Pattinson In “Bel Ami”

Hey Twilighters!

According to CinemaBlend, Robert Pattinson will be in the short story Bel Ami.

Robert Pattinson has wasted no time in parlaying his newfound Twilight fame into a secondary career as a serious actor. Sure he’s currently shooting the sequel New Moon, but outside of Twilight he’s lining up heavy, indie-dramas left and right. The latest added to his dance card is a movie called Bel Ami, based on a short story of the same name.

The short story follows a young journalist who find himself face to face with a corrupt society full of corrupt people. To survive he becomes one of them: a master seducer, a blackmailer, and shameless social climber. Speaking to Variety director Declan Donnellan describes the character as “totally amoral.” Basically he’s kind of a dick which, based on his work in Twilight, I can see the naturally aloof Pattinson pulling off with total ease.
