RPattz is still working on the vampire series, however he is breaking out of the typecasting placed on him by taking on some other big roles. 2011 will be a big year for him for sure!

Other than the two part ‘Breaking Dawn’ movie coming out later this year, he also plays the lead role in ‘Water for Elephants.’ Now he will start work on another project by David Cronenberg. ‘Cosmopolis’ is based on the novel by Don DeLillo and stars a futuristic “financial wonderkid” Eric Packer, played by Robert Pattinson. The movie will basically be “a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis.”

According to reports, the actor really likes both the author and director and is thrilled to be apart of it. He has already worked with some big stars, and in this role he may work with “Inception” star Marion Cotillard and perhaps Paul Giamatti.

Could things be going any better for the 24 year old? He is a mega star after his role of Edward Cullen for the ‘Twilight’ movies. They just accepted a 2011 People’s Choice Award for that, which you can watch a clip of below. And on top of these new projects, he may also host the Golden Globes! Talk about being on the top of your game!

Well fans of the British actor will have plenty of chances to see their man on the big screen it seems. What do you think abut Robert Pattinson being a part of all of these different roles? Is David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’ a good chance for him to break out of the vampire mold?
