The David Cronenberg-directed “Cosmopolis” once again puts Rob in the company of A-list actors, who should help him grow in his craft.

Rob has performed in an eclectic series of movies since he shot to fame in the original “Twilight” movie in 2008.

They include indie films like “Little Ashes,” “Bel Ami,” and “Remember Me,” to the bigger budget “Water for Elephants.”

Cronenberg has helmed such top films as “Crash” and “A History of Violence.” He’s joined by composer Howard Shore and cinematographer Peter Suschitzky.

The “Cosmopolis” Web site carried the announcement that “principal photography” would start today, May 23rd, in Toronto.

The picture is about banker Eric Packer (Pattinson) who starts out his day in his stretch limo in New York City, on his way simply to get a haircut.

But he’s confronted with a series of crises that cost him millions of dollars from a risky currency investment involving his cleints’ money. He must cope as his world unravels.

Filming in Toronto ends on the 21st July.
