For his post-"Twilight" career, Robert Pattinson has been quickly racing to establish himself as an actor instead of a heartthrob, using his cachet join a variety of projects with auteurs at the helm. He's got two David Cronenberg movies under his belt, another with David Michod, and more coming from Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. And that's not to mention a possible project with Harmony Korine, and if all goes according to plan, he'll kick off 2015 working with James Gray on "The Lost City Of Z." And that's not all.

Assayas, Pattinson

For his post-"Twilight" career, Robert Pattinson has been quickly racing to establish himself as an actor instead of a heartthrob, using his cachet join a variety of projects with auteurs at the helm. He's got two David Cronenberg movies under his belt, another with David Michod, and more coming from Werner Herzog and Anton Corbijn. And that's not to mention a possible project with Harmony Korine, and if all goes according to plan, he'll kick off 2015 working with James Gray on "The Lost City Of Z." And that's not all.

With his "Clouds Of Sils Maria" getting set to unspool at the Cannes Film Festival, director Olivier Assayas has revealed he's caught the RPatz fever. "I see that in the United States, especially since the success of 'l'Heure d'été' and 'Carlos,' I gained a relative notoriety, which sharpens the curiosity of some actors. My next film, for example, will include Robert Pattinson," he told Les InRocks (translation via Robsessed). 

So what will the film be? No idea. And that's about all the news there is on it. But it should be noted that last year, the director did line up a U.S. project, titled "Hubris," that would be in English and feature an American cast. It's based on a 2007 Playboy article called "Boosting The Big Tuna" by Hillel Levin and follows a group of small-time thieves who rob a man who turns out to be Chicago mafia boss Tony Accardo. Could this be that gig? 

Guess we'll have to be patient and wait to find out. But it looks like Pattinson continues to attract some very interesting collaborators.
