Robert Pattinson is set to star in David Cronenberg's new thriller.
The Twilight heartthrob is officially joining Maps To The Stars alongside Julianne Moore and John Cusack, Variety reported.
Robert, who previously worked with the filmmaker on Cosmopolis, was thought to be attached to the project. However, Julianne and John had not been linked to the movie.
It had been reported that Viggo Mortensen and Rachel Weisz were eyeing the film at one point, but it isn't known whether they were keen on the parts that have now been given to Robert, Julianne or John, or whether those were separate roles.
Written by Bruce Wagner, the film has been described as a ghost story that "offers a critique of celebrity-obsessed society in Los Angeles".
The Canadian filmmaker is set to start production on the film in July in Toronto and Los Angeles.
