Robert Pattinson boards Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’

'Twilight' thesp to star in futuristic drama

Robert Pattinson has signed on to “Cosmopolis,” which David Cronenberg penned and will direct.

Based on the Don DeLillo tome of the same name, story follows a multimillionaire played by Pattinson who risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a cataclysmic day.

Cronenberg will also produce along with Paulo Branco. Renee Tab will exec produce.

Pattinson is slowly trying to break away from his “Twilight” fan base and aiming for more adult-driven projects like this and the Francis Lawrence-directed “Water for Elephants,” which also stars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz.

Cronenberg just finished filming “A Dangerous Method” with Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender and had a slew of projects on his plate to pursue next, including an “Eastern Promises” sequel he has been trying to get off the ground for some time now.

With Pattinson attached, “Cosmopolis” will more than likely be the next film Cronenberg shoots even though a start date has not been set yet.

Pattinson is repped by WME.
