The British actor was last seen in the final part of the 'Twilight' saga, 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2', in 2012.
His upcoming flicks include 'The Rover', which will co-star Guy Pearce, and 'Maps to the Stars', which reunites him with director David Cronenberg, who helmed 'Cosmopolis'.
Pattinson previously credited the filmmaker with reinvigorating his career.

''I've always felt out of place. I doubt myself. David Cronenberg restored my belief in myself and changed the way I act and think about the industry.''
