…And it doesn’t sounds like something most Twi-hards will really be into. Robert Pattinson has accepted the lead in Cosmopolis, a David Cronenberg film that also co-stars Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti. Pattinson will play Eric Packer, a financial whiz who’s the target of an assassination plot. Like Twilight, the film is based on a book, written by Don DeLillo, but that’s where the similarities end. Deadline.com describes the plot as “a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place.” And how we love a good limo-based movie. My Chauffeur, anyone?
What say you, Twilight fans, will you see the film regardless of the subject? Or do you just wish Robsten would keep making romantic supernatural movies forever? We do love how both Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have stuck to their indie/non-blockbusters ways when they branch away from The Twilight Saga, so we admire this latest choice.
