Robert Pattinson To Star In Memoirs
Romantic drama next for Twilight star

25 March 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  

submit to reddit

Good news for fans of Robert Pattinson’s hair. The Twilight star’s massive barnet is in talks to accompany its owner on a new movie named Memoirs.

A romantic drama about two new lovers who struggle with their relationship when they’re beset by family tragedies, Memoirs may be directed by Allen Coulter, who was last seen directing Ben Affleck in true-life Superman drama, Hollywoodland.

Affleck, of course, has beautiful, shiny hair, but Coulter will never have worked with a ‘do quite like Pattinson’s. So big it’s asked for its own trailer, complete with detachable roof, let’s hope Coulter is up to the task of taming the British actor’s magnificent mane.

And on a more serious note, it’s good to see that Pattinson, who’s about to start work on Twilight sequel, Eclipse, is determined to stretch and test himself as an actor when he’s not being a big-haired biter.

Jenny Lumet, screenwriter of Rachel Getting Married, will rewrite Will Fetters’ original screenplay, while Summit, the studio behind Twilight, is putting up the cash, clearly in the hopes that Pattinson’s fervent fanbase will flock to see their idol in something that’s not vampire-related.

Good luck with that.

I agree with lorib. Mr Hewitt - where is the love for one of your Empire newcomer nominees?! Patty may have MASSIVE hair but he has got way more depth that Zac 'The Paddling Pool' Efron, surely? More

Looks like a great lineup and Summit are looking after Pattinson. I'm looking forward to see Pattinson in Little Ashes. Not long to wait now. More

Coulter has a good track record for getting excellent performances but nothing changes the fact that Robert Pattinson looks like a constipated walking wig so i'll give this one a miss More

Well liked script
The director and screen writer are excellent so this sounds like a good film for Pattinson. The screenwriter did a good job with Anne Hathaway's oscar nominated film. The screenplay made Leonardo DiCaprio's "Black List" (a list of the most liked unproduced screenplays in Hollywood) so sounds promising. I read that the film is set in New York and will be shot in the Autumn. More

Seems like Chris Hewiit has a crush for Zac Efron but not Pattinson. Clean those glasses Hewitt and get some taste. Actually Pattinson has already tested himself acting wise. Check out How to Be http://www.howtobemovie.com/ and Little Ashes http://www.littleashes-themovie.com/ More
