The Guardian: Life after Twilight

The Guardian has posted about the huge 'Harry Potter' and 'Twilight' Franchises finally coming to a close in 2012, and have previewed what Rob, Taylor and Kristen have coming up next! 
The final Twilight instalment Breaking Dawn: Part 2 screens in November. In the meantime, Stewart's big vehicle is Snow White and the Huntsman (released 1 June), an action-movie twist on the traditional tale (not a million miles away from the retooled gothic of Twilight). Lautner – the series' beefcake – is gunning for similar status, even if last September's Abduction was a flop; he's used his Twilight cash to sign up Gus Van Sant, for an as-yet secret project.

Arguably, it's Pattinson who looks to be making the most interesting moves. At 25, he's the oldest, and cut his teeth as Cedric Diggory in the Potter films. In the past he has demonstrated a literary/artistic bent (he played Salvador DalĂ­ in his last pre-Twilight film, Little Ashes), and he's going down that road again next year, with Bel Ami (released 2 March), an adaptation of the Maupassant novel. Later in the year we should be getting Cosmopolis, another literary adaptation (of Don DeLillo's 2003 novel), which has Pattinson as a mega-rich asset manager stuck in a limo for 24 hours. The director is David Cronenberg, so chances are this will be pretty special.
