*RUMOUR* "Child 44" maybe a new project for Robert Pattinson...


based on the novel of Tom Rob Smith...

"There is no crime."
Stalin's Soviet Union strives to be a paradise for its workers, providing for all of their needs. One of its fundamental pillars is that its citizens live free from the fear of ordinary crime and criminals.

But in this society, millions do live in fear . . . of the State. Death is a whisper away. The mere suspicion of ideological disloyalty-owning a book from the decadent West, the wrong word at the wrong time-sends millions of innocents into the Gulags or to their executions. Defending the system from its citizens is the MGB, the State Security Force. And no MGB officer is more courageous, conscientious, or idealistic than Leo Demidov.

A war hero with a beautiful wife, Leo lives in relative luxury in Moscow, even providing a decent apartment for his parents. His only ambition has been to serve his country. For this greater good, he has arrested and interrogated.

Then the impossible happens. A different kind of criminal-a murderer-is on the loose, killing at will. At the same time, Leo finds himself demoted and denounced by his enemies, his world turned upside down, and every belief he's ever held shattered. The only way to save his life and the lives of his family is to uncover this criminal. But in a society that is officially paradise, it's a crime against the State to suggest that a murderer-much less a serial killer-is in their midst. Exiled from his home, with only his wife, Raisa, remaining at his side, Leo must confront the vast resources and reach of the MBG to find and stop a criminal that the State won't admit even exists.
and according to It's on the grid , Rob, could take part of this project...

Casting Rumor: Robert Pattinson to Star in CHILD 44
Summit is out to directors for an adaptation of Tom Rob Smith’s crime drama CHILD 44. The project was originally set up at Fox 2000, with Ridley Scott directing. But while they may not have a director yet, they do have a star, according to what we’re hearing. And that star is none other than Robert Pattinson, the beloved Edward in Summit’s TWILIGHT franchise. RPat would play Leo, a strong-willed former member of the Soviet state police who investigates a series of childkillins that are being covered up by the very group he used to lead. It’s pretty different fare for the teen heartthrob, but it’ll give him a good excuse to stretch his acting chops.
Ok... nothing is confirmed by Rob or his agent and so on...
BUT if you look carefully to all the update on Spunk Ransom (tweets, imDb and so on, carefully collected), as we say in French, "ma foi", that could be awesome.....!! just imagine Rob in a "action" movie... (didn't he say he wanted a film where he could run in it... Photobucket

and if, by any chance, this is all true (grain of salt, as always when we're talking about *rumor* ...) this could take place this summer...
