First Look At Robert Pattinson As Dali

Take a gander at that 'tache!

Fresh from his blood-sucking breakthrough in upcoming fang fest Twilight, Robert Pattinson is going to play the young Salvador Dalí in Little Ashes - and now online is a first look image.

The film follows Dalí as he arrives as an 18 year-old at university in Madrid, determined to become a famous artist. He meets and forms a partnership with filmmaker Luis Buñuel and writer Federico García Lorca, and the trio become a formidable force among Madrid’s burgeoning avant garde scene. As time passes and each artist begins to find success, their relationships become strained and Dalí and the charismatic Federico find themselves escaping to the Dalí seaside home in Cadaques, and among the idyllic surrounds the pair begin to grow closer than they anticipated.

It certainly shows the depth of the now in-demand Pattinson, as he starts to establish himself among the next crop of big British exports. As much fun as the film sounds, we can’t quite get over that moustache. Little Ashes is released in 2009.
