Robert Pattinson Seduces A Bunch Of Women In New 'Bel Ami' Pics

While his girlfriend and fellow "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart is transitioning one out of one franchise, straight into another ("Snow White and the Huntsman"), Robert Pattinson seems keen to establish himself as An Actor. While the drippy, manipulative "Remember Me" was a miss, Pattinson proved himself a non-vampire draw with "Water For Elephants" earlier this year which powered itself to a strong $115 million worldwide. And with David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" and the period pic "Bel Ami" on the way, he seems eager to shake off the adolescent stink of "Twilight." While we have to wait and see how successful that attempt is, as these new pics from the latter film show, he's going to be turning up the heat in the process.

While his girlfriend and fellow "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart is transitioning one out of one franchise, straight into another ("Snow White and the Huntsman"), Robert Pattinson seems keen to establish himself as An Actor.

And with David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" and the period pic "Bel Ami" on the way, he seems eager to shake off the adolescent stink of "Twilight." While we have to wait and see how successful that attempt is, as these new pics from the latter film show, he's going to be turning up the heat in the process.

Based on the book by Guy de Maupassant and featuring Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci, “Bel Ami” will find Pattinson playing George Duroy, a sexy social climber in turn-of-the-century 1890s Paris, who seduces his way to wealth and fame from a poor beginning. Thurman will play the wife of one of Duroy’s friends who eventually marries Pattinson’s seductive schemer. Kristin Scott Thomas will appear as a woman who overestimates Duroy’s attachment to her. These pics show Pattinson easily proving his manhood with the female leads, but whether the film is a winner or not, we won't know for a while yet.

From what we hear, the producers are aiming for a Berlin Film Festival premiere in 2012 and it might be a while later before it hits theaters as the film is still without a distributor. So stay strong RPatz lovers and let these pics tide you over for now. [via Movieline]
