'Twilight' heartthrob Robert Pattinson is set to star alongside Nicole Kidman in 'Bel Ami,' an adaptation of Guy De Maupassant's sexually charged story of ambitious social climbers in late 19th century Paris.

According to Screen Daily, Pattinson -- who also stars in the 'Twilight' sequel 'New Moon,' premiering in the U.S. Nov. 20 -- will play 'Bel Ami''s ambitious young protagonist, who moves up in the world by getting down with some of 1890s Paris' most high-flying ladies.
