With the Twilight series coming to a close, Robert Pattinson has found a new leading lady, Sarah Gadon. She will play his estranged wife, Elise Shifrin, in the upcoming film Cosmopolis.
Sarah Gadon is one lucky girl – she will be married to Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis. According to our sister site Deadline, Sarah has been cast as Elise Shifrin in the movie adaptation of the popular book. We decided to take a look back at the movie script to see what kind of love scenes we can expect from Rob and Sarah!
Forget the honeymoon phase, Eric Packer and Elise have only been married for a short time and already have turmoil in their relationship. Their marriage is strained from the start as the two don’t know each other well at all. In fact, she only notices that he has blue eyes 22 days into their marriage since he has a penchant for wearing sunglasses.
Sarah, 23, is in a handful of scenes with Rob — they meet at a bookstore, share a taxi, and eat at a diner together. Eric is anything but an ideal husband, which causes strife in their relationship. He cheats on her, gets into heated arguments with other men, and drinks throughout the film. He also constantly tries to pressure her into having sex with him, but ultimately she gets frustrated with Eric, accuses him of cheating and says she thinks their relationship is “done.”
Cosmopolis centers around Eric, a 28-year-old billionaire who travels across Manhattan in a stretch limo in search of a haircut. Along his journey, he loses much of his clients’ money (as well as his wife’s fortune), encounters sexualized women, and tries to outwit the men who are after him.
Sarah currently plays Zoe Kessler on the Canadian drama, The Border. She also starred in the ABC Family movie, The Cutting Edge 3: Chasing the Dream. Sarah joins Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Samantha Morton in the growing cast of Cosmopolis.
