Rob has been in numerous big films, but ‘Cosmopolis,’ his biggest yet, begins shooting in Toronto today!

Robert Pattinson has spent the past four years talking about how difficult it will be for him to convince people he is not actually Edward Cullen and today, May 23, is his big day! Rob has begun filming on Cosmopolis in Toronto and now needs to prove to the world he can play more than a vampire! Do you think he is up for the challenge?

The official site for Cosmopolis announced, “Cosmpolis principal photography starts today, May 23rd, in Toronto, Canada. Based on Don DeLillo’s praised novel, this highly awaited film to be directed by David Cronenberg gathered some of the most exciting stars of today’s industry, including names as Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Samantha Morton and Kevin Durand.”

Cosmopolis tells the story of an incredibly successful banker named Eric Packer (Robert) who spends the day riding through the streets on New York City in his stretch limo to get a haircut, all the while losing millions of dollars of money for his clients as he poorly invests their money.

Director David is one of the most revered individuals working in film while Rob’s costars Juliette and Paul are both Oscar nominees, with Julia having won the prestigious award!

So HollywoodLifers, do you think Cosmopolis will make Rob an Oscar nominee?
