While Robert Pattinson may have a stigma attached to his work post-TWILIGHT, the actor is looking to make a much different name for himself after that insanely popular franchise draws to its close.

Arguably the actor’s most intriguing project, we finally have our first look at his turn in the upcoming David Cronenberg film, COSMOPOLIS, and while it is simply a photo, it does look quite interesting.

The photo comes to us thanks to Cronenberg’s daughter, Caitlin, who sent it out via Twitter (via Bleeding Cool), and features Pattinson and actress Sarah Gadon, who star alongside Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric, and Samantha Morton. COSMOPOLIS follows the story of a young businessman who loses his fortune by betting against the yen, gets stalked, and cheats on his wife in what should be an interesting 24 hours helmed by Cronenberg.

No release date has been set for the film, but a Cannes/Venice debut in 2012 will be the likeliest home for the hotly anticipated film. Cronenberg’s next, A DANGEROUS METHOD, will hit at this year’s Venice Film Festival.
