Movie Hunger has some suggestions for Rob's co-stars in Bel Ami. I am so excited for this movie. Rob as a womanizer? Yes please!

New Moon movie star Robert Pattinson seems to love taking on new movie roles that turn him into a character of mystery and culture. First the actor took on the role of Salvador Dali in the movie production of Little Ashes and now his future may be that of scandalous Frenchman.
Director Declan Donnellan plans to bring the short story of Guy de Maupassant to life on the movie screen with Bel Ami. It’s rumored that movie star Robert Pattinson will take on the role of Georges Duroy in the film. The movie will be focused around the life of Georges Duroy’s life as he goes from being an Ex-NCO to a very successful and wealthy businessman.
Robert Pattinson thought that his love scenes as Salvador Dali in Little Ashes were awkward, I wonder how he is going to feel courting several women at once as Georges Duroy? Why? Well the way that this character raises him to the top is by having affairs with several notable and wealthy women.
The question on my mind is the actress that will play opposite Robert Pattinson. This honestly sounds like an award winning movie. I wonder if they will cast new actors and actresses for the roles or if Robert Pattinson will be working with some of the Hollywood greats?
For example some of the roles on Bel Ami are Madeleine Forestier (Du Roy), Monsieur Laroche-Mathieu, Comte de Vaudrec, Clotilde de Marelle, Laurine de Marelle, Jacques Rival, Norbert de Varenne, Monsieur Walter, Virgine Walter, Susanne Walter, and Rachel.
When looking at these characters for the movie Bel Ami, I keep on getting visions of Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightly, Mery Streep, Colin Firth, and Orlando Bloom.
Madeleine Forestier (Du Roy) is George’s wife in the movie Bel Ami. I could see Emma Watson taking on the role of the woman that helps the journalist with their stories and introduces Georges to the powerful with her society connections.
Emma Thompson is definitely shy to roles of this nature. I could see her taking on a role in Bel Ami. I just wonder if she would be playing one of the socialites or one of George’s conquests. Clotilde de Marelle perhaps, a role of a woman who has too much time on her hands because her husband is always away on business.
George’s isn’t the only one who has an affair in Bel Ami. I could see Orlando Bloom playing the Monsuier that Madeleine has an affair with. Of course there is the role of the Newspaper head, I could see Colin Firth playing this role. I wouldn’t like to see him take on the role of the angry husband though. Colin Firth is one of my favorite actors.
Of course the production of Bel Ami and Robert Pattinson’s role are only rumors. Bel Ami is only a possible thought of a movie release. I do hope the Bel Ami gets the studio green light; I’d love to see Robert Pattinson in additional movie roles.
Gozde: Hoping for this sentence "This honestly sounds like an award winning movie." to come true...
