Pattinson, Kidman board Bel Ami for Protagonist
4 November, 2009 By Geoffrey Macnab
In an intriguing star pairing, Twilight sensation Robert Pattinson is teaming with Nicole Kidman to star in Bel Ami, the film of Guy De Maupassant’s erotically charged story of ambition, power and seduction. Multi-award winning UK theatre directors Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod are directing from a screenplay by Rachel Bennette.
In a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession, the film has, say the producers, a contemporary relevance which should resonate with audiences worldwide.
"Erotically charged story of ambition, power, and seduction", "sex is power" are making me nervous! Can Kristen play the role of Nicole Kidman? Is she too young for the role lol? I can try, right? Kidding aside, I'm really looking forward to seeing Rob opposite Nicole but frustrated that this is not a Baz Luhrman production :)
