Rob Pattinson has a new leading lady, and it isn’t Kristen Stewart but an older woman, the lovely Uma Thurman. The two are slated to star in an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s Bel Ami.
RPattz will be playing George Duroy, a young journalist who rose from poverty to become one of the most successful men in Paris via the ruthless and calculating bedding of the city’s most glamorous and influential women.
Thurman will be beating Kristen Stewart to the punch, as her character will become the wife of Pattinson on screen. Twilight fans are still waiting to see Edward and Bella wed.
Bel Ami is scheduled to shoot next year in Paris, according to The Hollywood Reporter. During the New Moon press tour Rob and Kristen were spotted holding hands leaving the airport after a glamorous promotional event, adding fuel to the fire about their budding romance.
New Moon broke the midnight opening record when it opened in theaters Friday, November 20, bringing in an estimated $26.27 million and breaking the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince Record.
