Robert Pattinson has signed up for period drama The Childhood Of A Leader.
The Twilight heartthrob will co-star with Juliette Binoche and Tim Roth in the film, reported Variety.
The movie will focus on the childhood of a post-World War I leader and will be directed by actor Brady Corbet, who also co-wrote the script and will be making his feature film directorial debut.
So far it isn't known who Robert, Juliette and Tim will play.
The cast are expected to arrive in Europe to start shooting next spring.
R-Patz has not been seen on the big screen since the last film in the vampire saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, was released last year.
The 27-year-old's upcoming projects include Australian crime drama The Rover and David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars. He has also been linked to thriller The Lost City Of Z.
