Robert Pattinson could get his hands on another romantic role as he sets his eyes on "Memoirs". The actor who claimed his worldwide fame through his portrayal of vampire Edward Cullen in "Twilight" has been reported to be in early talks to star in the romantic drama.

If everything goes smoothly, the 22-year-old Pattinson will team up once again with "Twilight" producer Summit Entertainment in the feature project that tells the story of star-crossed lovers who meet and fall in love while struggling to deal with family tragedies. Details of his character are yet to be shared though.

"Memoirs" will be produced by Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson through their Underground Films banner. Jenny Lumet, who penned "Rachel Getting Married", is aboard to rewrite the script, while helmer Allen Coulter, whose credits include "Hollywoodland", "The Sopranos" and "Damages" is in negotiation to direct.

Starting his career in the entertainment industry through modeling, Robert Pattinson had starred as Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" before landing his "Twilight" role. Soon to be seen playing Salvador Dali in "Little Ashes", he has joined the production of "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" in which he will return as Edward Cullen.

I saw Little Ashes ´cause I didn´t want to be unfair with the vegetarian vampire...But sorry guys, it´s not the direction that´s ruining his acting, it´s his lack of talent. You´re not helping him refusing to see the truth. It´s palpable that he should have choisen another job.

I think he is a wonderfull actor, just wish that he wouldn't fall into the Hollywood trap of egotistic maniacs.All the best to him.Stay the way u are and never let anybody label u.
posted by NdnWmn on Mar 29, 2009 people have some serious issues here...Since the actors career seems to bring you so much angst...Maybe you all should think about working some sort of anger management program...Leave the comments to those who like the actor and eagerly watch his career choices...In my humble opinion.

I saw Haunted Airman and a trailer for Little Ashes on Youtube. At least in the first one, he repeats his Edward´s piece of wood performance and gave me no hope at all as an serious artist. I´ll wait for Ashes to come out to comment but I´m not expecting that much either. It is said that the guy who´s playing Lorca is the real actor of the film. I would like Pattinson as a person, as long as he´s being sincere, but I don´t think it´s the case. For me he´s good in manipulating media, playing always the victim. I really don´t forgive who lies in order to get his goal, be it money, fame or whatever it is his case. But it´s just my opinion.

So he´s an art-house movie buff huh? He doesn´t care at all about making loads of money huh? He´s just an innocent, shy and humble child facing Hollywood madness huh? After 3 or 4 cheesy mormom mom/teen trash movies which makes him millions out of his dumb fanbase, the guy picks this romantic dreamy hunky role again...In reality vampires LOOOOOOVE money!

Well, another Edward role. After that, a Edward son´s movie, and after that, Edward as a grandfather...I think he really should choose more courageous and take risks in order to get better as an actor. What a sissy choice...

Reply to Renee on this post. Wow, Polly Positive! I must say for Rob to be such a mediocre artist he's doing quite well. He's got a few movies under his belt and many roles being thrown at him. There is overwhelming praise for his role as Salvador Dali in Little Ashes. A movie with substance, imagine that! I happened to think he'll have great success and his acting is wonderful. Once everyone gives up on the Twilight bashing and all the gossip that comes with it's actors, he'll be taken for more than just eye candy. I love how negative people are on these posts. Confirmed: People love to tear you down and pass judgment, even when they don't know what the hell they are talking about! Love you and the work you do Robert! Keep going! I hope you did get the lead role in the movie being made about the Kent State tragedy. We look forward to seeing you in Ohio.

Confirmed: this guy´s such a mediocre artist. He´ll be Edward all his life as long as he cashes in as much as he can. Go back to London Rob. And don´t come back! what a hypocrite...
