    The film, based on a true story, is about a woman (Mulligan) and her boyfriend's kidnapping of their town's richest man. Pattinson plays a longtime love of Mulligan's.

    James Marsh, who won an Oscar for the documentary Man On a Wire, will direct the film.

    No word on when filming will begin. Pattinson is also set to star with Guy Pearce in The Rover and Mission Blacklist, a drama about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
