According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is based on Guy de Maupassant’s novel of the same name. Pattinson plays George Duroy, a poor soldier who seduces his way through French high society, thanks to the likes of his attractive co-stars. Which one will he choose — if any?
Pattinson himself has already made his decision — regarding any future Twilight films, that is. While promoting this film at the Berlin International Film Festival, the actor expressed that he’s pretty much done with the supernatural franchise.
“I’d be curious what Stephenie would write, but I just think I’d probably be too old. I’m already too old,” said Pattinson.
Looks like he’s already successful in moving on! Pattinson will also appear in the upcoming film Cosmopolis and is also a top contender to play the lead in Fifty Shades of Grey — alongside onscreen and real-life love, Kristen Stewart!
