Robert Pattinson on 'Cosmopolis' Set (PHOTOS)
This will be the actor's third big budget book-turned-movie, Twilight and Water For Elephants are the others.
The film is based on a book that is an adaptation of the classic Ulysses story. It's set in New York in the year 2000 (the dot-com era), and takes place in the course of one day as the main character Eric Packer (Pattinson) peruses the Big Apple in a limo, running errands. It's during this time that he runs into some characters.
Pattinson stars alongside sexy blonde up-and-comer Sarah Gadon, and the film is being headed up by acclaimed director David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises). When asked by MTV News back in April what he thought of his new leading lady, R-Pattz answered, "I've seen a couple of things she's done. She's really good. She has a great face. ... I haven't talked to her yet, but I think it's going to be a great cast."
