Bel Ami, which also stars Christina Ricci and Colm Meaney, is the upcoming film adaptation of the popular novel written in 1885 by Guy de Maupassant. The film is directed by Declan Donnellan for Studio Canal and will begin it's international theatrical rollout this year.
Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy (Pattinson), who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitute’s embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.
