Rob’s sexy new film has just been moved into pre-production, and more details about the plot and his character have been released! Read on to find out what to expect from the new flick!

When we last heard about Robert Pattinson‘s upcoming movie Hold On To Me, it was October of 2012 and the hunky actor had just been cast as Carey Mulligan‘s love interest, which guaranteed a handful of shirtless scenes! On Feb. 6, FilmNation, the company behind the film, announced that it’s officially in pre-production, while also revealing a whole slew of exciting new details about the movie!

Back in October, we’d originally reported that the film would center on Carey’s character, a girl who kidnaps her town’s richest man, looking for a ransom. Rob, 26, is set to play Jimmy, her love interest, who isn’t involved in the crime. We’d also learned, exclusively, that the script called for three steamy moonlight swim scenes between the couple — meaning some sexy shirtless moments for Rob!

Robert Pattinson’s ‘Hold On To Me’ — Full Synopsis

The newly-released synopsis of the film reveals Hold On To Me to be a sexy thriller based on an incredible true story!

“HOLD ON TO ME is an electrifying thriller based on the extraordinary true story of a femme fatale who kidnaps and ransoms the town’s richest man. Mulligan plays Nancy, a small town girl who callously leaves her boyfriend Jimmy (Pattinson) behind to chase a modelling career in New York City, breaking his heart in the process. To Nancy’s surprise, New York isn’t impressed by her and at 26, she’s back home waiting tables at the local diner. When she gets word that Jimmy has become a wealthy and successful criminal in Chicago, she tracks him down with a view to winning his affections, only to find crushing rejection. Fuelled by jealousy and an unquenchable thirst for fortune, Nancy finds Danny, a naïve pawn she can seduce and manipulate to her own ends and together they embark on a life of crime. Success comes fast, and leaves faster but nothing and no one will stand in the way of Nancy’s naked, dangerous and deadly ambition.”

Rob’s Upcoming Film Line-Up

Hold On To Me is one of three films on Rob’s current production slate. The actor is currently filming The Rover in Australia, and he’s also set to star in Mission Blacklist, where he plays a soldier and will film in Iraq later in 2013.
