Robert Pattinson has yet to conclusively prove that he has acting chops beyond soulfully staring at teenage girls, but there is one thing we all know he can do: seduce and influence people. Those skills will come in handy for him in Bon Ami, an upcoming adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's short story, in which Pattinson will star opposite Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas.
THR is reporting that Thurman has signed on to star opposite Pattinson, who plays journalist George Duroy as he makes his way up in the Paris social scene through the ruthless tactic of sleeping with the most influential women he can find. Thurman stars off as a friend and co-conspirator but later becomes his wife, while Thomas is a clingy socialite who falls for Duroy.
Uma Thurman seems to be moving in to a full-time second career as a screen cougar, which suits me just fine-- no woman that gorgeous should be put out to pasture just yet. I'm not certain how her chemistry will mesh with Pattinson's, or even if he's good enough to handle the part, but god will they look good together regardless.
