Robert Pattinson's New Role

We reported earlier that Rob would possibly be working on a new project that Summit was developing & now it seems certain he's in. Screen reports:

Summit Entertainment is presenting four new titles to buyers at Cannes this year including two new Summit productions - a romantic drama starring Twilight sensation Robert Pattinson and a generational love story set in Italy starring Amanda Seyfried.

Pattinson is starring in Remember Me which is shooting this summer in New York while the actor is between Twilight sequels New Moon, which wraps at the end of May, and Eclipse, which starts in August.

Allen Coulter, the award-winning TV director (The Sopranos, Damages) who made his feature debut with Hollywoodland in 2006, is directing the film and Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson of Underground Films (License To Wed) are producing.

Summit co-chairman and CEO Patrick Wachsberger wouldn’t go into too much detail on the plot but described the film as this generation’s Love Story. A female lead is in the process of being cast, while Rachel Getting Married writer Jenny Lumet has finished the latest draft of the screenplay.

I really hope this all works out & that Rob does get to do this. How exciting for him to get to do a new project!

Although I love the idea of him being a romatic lead (sigh), I would love to see him in a totally different role - ala Johnny Depp in Edward Scissorhands.
