pattinson1611.jpgRobert Pattinson is becoming one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood -- especially for film adaptations of popular novels. Not only does the "Twilight" star get top billing in the forthcoming "Water for Elephants," based on Sara Gruen's book, but now The Hollywood Reporter says he has signed on to star in "Cosmopolis," David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel. Pattison will play a 28-year-old billionaire who rides around Manhattan in a limo, trying to get to a hair salon while absurd events unfold around him.
