The first photo of Robert Pattinson on set for his new role on the movie Cosmopolis was released by photographer Caitlin Cronenberg on her twitter account.
"Hot off the press release! Proud! 'ROBERT PATTINSON as Eric and SARAH GADON as Elise in COSMOPOLIS,'" says Cronenberg who is the daughter of the film's director, David Cronenberg.
Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a 28 year-old multi-billionaire banker who makes an odyssey across Manhattan to get a haircut. Sarah Gadon is playing Eric’s new wife, Elise Shifrin.
The movie started the production earlier this week in Toronto and will be released in 2012.
Twilight fans will have to wait until November to see him as the vampire "Edward," in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II.
