Robert Pattinson is putting Twilight behind him.

At least with work, he is.

R.Pattz has signed on to star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, his rep confirms.

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.
