Last year it was announced that Robert Pattinson would once again use his sunken cheeks to seduce audiences in his new film, Bel Ami. It’s a period piece that co-stars several veteran actresses including Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Christina Ricci. Not only will his character be surrounded by ladies but we’re pretty sure he’s going to sleep with 90% of them.

Bel Ami centers on George Duroy (Pattinson), a young journalist who rose from poverty to become one of the most successful men in Paris via the ruthless and calculating bedding of the city’s most glamorous and influential women. Thurman plays the wife of Duroy’s friend, a woman who is extremely involved and connected in the goings-on of Parisian society. She helps Duroy in his ascent, later becoming his wife.

Pattinson’s character is essentially a man-whore who uses his body and charms to get what he wants. This is a long cry from his honorable alter ego Edward Cullen. How will the Twihards react?! Dun, dun, dun!!!

Bel Ami is directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2011.

What do you think of Pattinson’s new role?
