Rob Pattinson To Star In "Bel Ami"

Googling gay men around the world are going to give Variety a serious traffic boost with this one:


So it's actually an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's short story "Bel Ami," the story of Georges Duroy's - says wikipedia - "corrupt rise to power from a poor ex-NCO to one of the most successful men in Paris, most of which he achieves by manipulating a series of powerful, intelligent, and wealthy mistresses"... I am fairly certain it doesn't additionally involve young Eastern European boys having orgies with Pattinson, but who knows.

Either way, I can't wait for the widespread confusion and/or dirty photoshopping when the poster art arrives.
