ROBERT Pattinson is to bed Uma Thurman in his next film.
The Twilight star has signed up to star in a bigscreen version of French author Guy de Maupassant's 19th century novel Bel Ami.
He plays the ambitious journalist Georges Duroy, who sleeps his way to the top.
Pattinson's first on-screen conquest will be Thurman's character Madeleine.
Film fans could possibly see Pattinson get between the sheets with Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas, who star as Clotilde and Virginie, respectively.
The movie will be helmed by theatre director Declan Donnellan, who is making his film debut.
The actor, who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the hit movie series said: "You get offered stuff that you'd never dream of getting offered before, but that's also scary."
"Before Twilight I did any movie I was offered, and I'd try and make the best of it.
"But now, you're expected to provide not only economic viability, but a performance as well." - Bang
