Robert Pattinson Set To Take On Kristen Stewart Cheating Row In New Movie Maps To The Stars?

Robert Pattinson is confirmed in David Cronenberg’s latest movie Maps to the Stars, alongside the likes of Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Sarah Gadon and Julianne Moore.

Pattinson of course worked with Cronenberg on intense car based drama Cosmopolis, but their latest movie’s subject matter could cut quite close to the bone for the former Twilight star.

That’s because Maps to the Stars is set to be a sharp critique on LA celebrity culture – something Rob knows only too well after years as the object of every Twi-hard’s affection.

That Hollywood culture turned nasty last year, after it was revealed that long term lover Kristen Stewart was having an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

The affair – and the media storm that surrounded it, almost certainly troubled The Rover star – with Rob looking visibly uncomfortable when asked about the situation. Pattinson and Stewart have since reconciled.

With the film set to be a,”complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture”, according to the IMDb, Rob could certainly draw on his own negative experience to help pal and director Cronenberg capture the world of stardom in the new film.

According to Deadline, the film will begin production in July in Los Angeles.
