Robert Pattinson

Unlike his former flame Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson is keeping busy with various projects.

He is playing T.E. Lawrence in Werner Herzog's Gertrude Bell biopic titled Queen of the Desert, which is shooting this fall. It's probably in production right now.

He is set to star opposite Guy Pearce in the David Michod-directed futurist western The Rover in which he plays a man trying to hunt down the gang members who stole all of his belongings.

An then there's Mission: Blacklist. The movie is based on Staff Sergeant Eric Maddox's book Mission: Black List #1: The Inside Story of the Search for Saddam Hussein – As Told by the Soldier Who Masterminded His Capture, which details how Maddox deduced Hussein's hidden location from the available clues.

Now, he has added another to his to-do list.

Pattinson will join Carey Mulligan in the thriller Hold on to Me, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Formerly titled Nancy and Danny, Hold on to Me is set in a small town and is about an ambitious woman who is willing to turn to crime to get the man she wants.

No word on when the movie will go in production, but it safe to assume it'll be after the those mentioned above.

Project Nim's James Marsh is attached to direct.
