R-Patz renamed RIP-Patz after both post-Twilight flicks flopJun 23, 1:50 pm
London, June 23 (ANI): Robert Pattinson, who was looking to break away from the film franchise 'Twilight' and graduate from being a boy vampire to a leading man, is being called RIP-Patz as both his movies post-Twilight have flopped badly.The Beekman Theatre on Manhattan's Upper East Side was completely empty for a screening of the film 'Bel Ami' in which the 26-year-old actor stars as a manipulative journalist who sleeps his way up the social ladder.Not one punter had paid to see the movie, which is set up against the backdrop of 19th century Paris, with cinema staff confirming this was not an uncommon occurrence for the film."Increasingly Rob is being referred to as RIP-Patz instead of his nickname R-Patz," the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.The actor is apparently unfazed by the hiccup as he is currently soaking up the party lifestyle in LA with girlfriend Kristen Stewart, claiming that they were edgy films that were never going to attract large audiences."But his agents at William Morris Endeavor are not so carefree about the situation. Rob has not been terrible in the films but apart from Twilight, he keeps misjudging material," the source said."Bel Ami didn't suit him, Cosmopolis doesn't appeal to anyone who is not interested in sprawling examinations of time and nobody remembers 'Remember Me'," the source added.The source said that Pattinson's career post-Twilight does not inspire confidence in the tinseltown."Rob wants to make a small Australian crime movie called The Rover and team up with Cronenberg again to make a drama about the dirty side of Hollywood entitled Map To The Stars," the source said."But both these projects have been thrown into jeopardy as a result of his underwhelming time at the box office."Robert needs to emulate Andrew Garfield and Daniel Radcliffe [who Pattinson starred with in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire] who are examples of young British actors that crossed over to become leading men or risk being out of the game by the time he's 30," the source said.
