If you’re a fan of the Twilight franchise, you’ll be happy to hear that its main star, Robert Pattinson, has some exciting news for you. Not only will he be making a grand return to the big screen in a big way in the upcoming movie, The Dark Knight Rises, but he’ll also be gracing the big screen a few months later in another very exciting project, Mr. and Mrs. Smith!
In addition to these two projects, Robert Pattinson will be seen on the big screen in two other highly anticipated movies: The Great Gatsby and Bel Ami. While we can’t predict how these movies will perform at the box office, it’s safe to say that the public is in for a treat.
Based on the hugely popular and addictive social media game, FarmVille, The Great Gatsby tells the story of a decadent jazz age party – the great Gatsby affair – that takes place in the early 20th century. The film will star Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman, and Robert Pattinson as The Great Gatsby and will be directed by Joel Coen from a screenplay written by William Nicholson and Joel Coen. Production on The Great Gatsby is set to begin this spring in New York City.
How Do I Look?
While we can’t be sure what the exact role of Robert Pattinson’s character, Nick Carraway, will be in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, we can at least say that he won’t be appearing in the movie as himself. Instead, he’ll be playing a version of himself that is based on the life of Ernest Hemingway’s original Nick Carraway, played by real-life celebrity Robert Redford. As with most of the other characters in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, most of the dialogue will be in the form of narration written by the acclaimed novelist of the early 20th century, E. M. Forster. It’s no secret that Forster’s words can be especially enticing to moviegoers, since many of them can actually read and follow along.
What Is This Film About?
Bel Ami is French for “the nakedness of love,” and this movie will most likely be about as racy as the title suggests. The French production will be directed by Philippa Fletcher from an original screenplay by Eric Bogosian. Despite the film’s provocative title, Bel Ami is actually a romantic comedy about rivalry and sexual intrigue between two famous Parisian sociologists, played by Benicio del Toro and Kirsten Dunst. The film will be released in France on November 22 and in the U.S. on December 11, 2012.
Will It Be Good?
While we can’t make any predictions about the future success of these upcoming movies, one thing is for sure: they’ll be watched by many moviegoers who love to see Robert Pattinson on the big screen.
