While it would appear that Robert Pattinson is back together -- or at least hanging out with -- Kristen Stewart (just in time for their 'Breaking Dawn' press tour, which is surely no coincidence), the actor continues to line up an impressive array of projects. And already attached to movies with Werner Herzog and David Michod, he's got another non-Hollywood filmmaker that's lining up in his schedule.

Pattinson will join Carey Mulligan in the previously announced "Nancy And Danny" which is now called "Hold On To Me." But this isn't some swoony romance. Penned by Brad Ingelsby ("Out Of The Furnace"), and set to be directed by James Marsh ("Project Nim," "Shadow Dancer") the story follows a money hungry woman, whose life didn't turn out the way she wanted, who uses a man as a pawn to help land her high school crush in a get-rich-quick scheme. And that plan is to bury the town's richest man in box and hold him for ransom, but of course, things don't go as they're supposed to.

The film also brings Pattinson into the orbit of another great filmmaker, Todd Field, who is producing the project after being originally attached to direct (he's now focusing on "The Creed Of Violence"). Now before anyone gets too excited, this is a package project headed to the American Film Market, which means that if it doesn't get some decent pre-sales, it ain't gonna happen. But Pattinson is clearly done with blockbusters for the moment, and we like everyone involved, and given the talent on board, we don't see why this can't make a planned 2013 shoot. [Deadline]

    he is a very good and talent actor, before you said anything 'go and watch all his movies, then voice your opions if you must.' I 'm so happy for him that so many different directors want to work with him. they must see something special in him.

    I keep reading this 'They're all 14' accusation leveled at anyone who expresses an interest in Pattinson's career. It's nonsense. This actor can act, and act well, as is surely evident from the shower of roles he is getting. I do wish people would set aside their prejudices and go and see Cosmopolis so they can see for themselves that The Twilight Saga showed nothing of what Pattinson is capable of. Time for a rethink folks.

    Mr. Jagernaus, and what exactly has his private life to do with his professional life. You sound pathetic. You call yourself a Journalist ,well you sound like a gossip writer like Perez, Perez is just funnier. So you concentrate on the news , report about this great opportunity , what will give Patterson another venue to shine. here is a tip , keep Edward and Bella out of your future reports

    Probably, what Jagernauth meant by say 'At least hanging out ... 'Is surely No coincidence', is that probably, because of the movie, they already needed to meet, for to meeting for work, interviews, etc.

    But I must say, so fast with her, he may just to looks like a doormat.

    Will he play a doormat in the movie like he does in real life? lol loser. He's lucky he gets to work with a alister like Carey. Twatlight certainly does him wonders.

    His private life has nothing to do with his amazing presence on screen, are you watching Clooney, Pitt Levitt and all the other people who we wonder what they do in their private life, to determine if they can act. Rob is a Saint and knows something none of us knows. Even if she messes up again you don't live with them so hold your mouth. how many hearts did you break to play the innocent here.

  • Kanerwa | October 17, 2012 4:37 AM

    @Ken,you're a real loser 'cause you're interesting in actor's private life.Nobody forced you to watching his movies.

  • Ooo lala | October 17, 2012 4:00 AM

    Don't worry he will fade in obscurity when Twilight mania diminishes.I bet when that happens he will marry his owner Kristen so that she could be his meal ticket and cuckold him publicly lol.

    Says the guy who lives in his parent's basement and never gets laid.

    Has anyone seen Cosmopolis? Perhaps you should before you get so sarcastic. Makes you look very silly.

  • Jengmei | October 16, 2012 5:47 PM

    One can work with great directors and still remain as compelling as a brick wall. See Channing Tatum for further evidence. I feel bad for Mulligan but at least it's a supporting role, so R Patz won't ruin the ENTIRE movie. Also 'get over it' is the lease helpful piece of advice.

  • ok | October 16, 2012 5:44 PM

    lol oh please. He's working with great directors. They casted him for a reason.... because he's talented. get over it.

    What exactly does his private life have to do with the movie role in 'Hold On To Me'?

    Get your priorities straight as a reporter, Mr Jagernauth, because this article just reads as you desperately wanting attention by way of making snarky and inaccurate comments. And just for argument's sake, there IS such a thing as 'coincidence'. What was he supposed to do, wait to reconcile with her at a time that's more convenient for you? It's Pattinson's life. So how about you stick to what you get paid for - report on his movie roles in a PROFESSIONAL manner, because what you said sure as hell didn't convey that.

    One would guess you are of the same age in order to relate! Just once it would be so great to read intelligent comments from avid film goers.
