Are you wondering what's next for some of the Twilight Cast after Breaking Dawn wraps in March sometime?
We know that shortly after completion of Breaking Dawn, Robert Pattinson will be on a media tour and premiere for Water for Elephants (in theaters April 22) but guess what else I found out?
According the my favorite source of news, Twilight Examiner, according to an article on Deadline Hollywood, Rob will taking part in another book to movie called Cosmopolis by author Don DeLillo.
EXCLUSIVE: Robert Pattinson has booked his first major lead for when he completes The Twilight Saga. Pattinson will star in Cosmopolis, the Don DeLillo novel adaptation that David Cronenberg wrote and will direct. Pattinson, will play Eric Packer. A financial wunderkind, Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in 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. Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are also reportedly doing the film, but those same reports had Colin Farrell poised to take the lead role.
As Pattinson and his Twilight Saga castmates plan their careers after the series is completed--Bill Condon is directing the final film right now, Pattinson is following a path based on strong filmmakers and tasteful source material. He took the role because he is a big fan of Cronenberg's work and an admirer of DeLillo's books.
I have read the first 50 pages on my ibook and patiently waiting for the book to arrive on my door step and let me tell you... RATED R!!!!!! LOL
It also looks like he is headed back to New York to possible film this one since the setting is New York based however, the entire book takes place in a limo... hmmmmmmmmmm
So, there ya go... Go get the book and let me know what you think!
