Uma Thurman has the Edward Cullen bug, just like every other gal in America. On the dawn of New Moon, the latest release in the Twilight franchise, comes the news that Thurman has joined the production of Bel Ami, based on a short story by Guy de Maupassant.

According to THR, Thurman has signed on to star opposite Robert Pattinson, who will play George Duroy, a young journalist who rose from poverty to become one of the most successful men in Paris via the ruthless and calculating bedding of the city’s most glamorous and influential women. Thurman will play the wife of Duroy’s friend, a woman who is extremely involved and connected in the happenings of Parisian society. She helps Duroy during his journey and eventually becomes his wife.

Kristin Scott Thomas has also joined the cast, and will play a socialite who also falls for Duroy, becoming clingy in the process.

London theater director Declan Donnellan will be making his feature debut with the pic, which shoots in Paris early next year.
