The film will reunite Robert Pattinson with the Cosmopolis director but will also highlight the hounding he endures at the hands of the paparazzi. The plot is yet to be unveiled in detail but it’s believed it bears more than a resemblance to the Brit’s actual life.

The storyline focuses around celebrity culture and the public’s obsession with those in the limelight. Map to the Stars also addresses what the showbiz industry reveals about Western culture. It’s been described as an indie ghost story and will see Robert star alongside Julian Moore, John Cusack and Sarah Gordon.
