Robert Pattinson eyeing 'Memoirs'
Summit courting 'Twilight' star for new projectRobert Pattinson, who proved his romantic appeal in Summit's "Twilight," may play another star-crossed lover in a new project called "Memoirs" that Summit is currently assembling.
Pattinson, who is reprising his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the "Twilight" sequel "The New Moon," is in early talks to star in the new project, which Allen Coulter is considering directing.
"Memoirs," based on an orignal screenplay by Will Fetters that will be rewritten by Jenny Lumet, who penned "Rachel Getting Married," tells of two lovers whose newfound relationship is threatened as they struggle to deal with family tragedies.
Coulter -- who directed "Hollywoodland," which dealt with the death of George Reeves, and has been nominated for six Emmys for his work on HBO's "The Sopranos" and FX's "Damages" -- is in negotiations on the project.
Nick Osborne and Trevor Engelson would produce via their Underground Films banner, and Summit president of production Erik Feig and vp production Meredith Milton, who brought the project to Summit, will oversee for the studio.
Pattinson is repped by Endeavor, while Coulter and Lumet are repped by ICM.
