Move over Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson is getting a new leading lady.

As The Twilight Saga is coming to an end, the 26-year-old actor is signing on to star alongside fellow Brit Carey Mulligan in Hold On to Me, according to Deadline.

The movie — directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker James Marsh — revolves around the true story of a femme fatale who, along with her boyfriend, kidnaps the town’s richest man for ransom. Pattinson will play the supporting role of Jimmy, the woman’s life love who isn’t involved in the crime.

Hold On to Me is Pattinson’s third post-Twilight saga project. The actor is will also appear alongside Guy Pearce in the David Michod-directed The Rover and star in Mission Blacklist, a true story of the U.S. military interrogator responsible for discovering the location of Saddam Hussein.

Pattinson is currently on the first leg of his global Breaking Dawn – Part 2 promotional tour. As his co-star — and on-and-off girlfriend — Stewart promotes the film in Japan, the British heartthrob will be attending press events in Australia.

The couple will be reunited for joint press junkets starting Sunday with a red carpet appearance at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater for the world premiere of the final Twilight installment on Nov. 12.
