Through all the stardom that has been thrown in Robert Pattinson’s face over the past year, it’s scary to realize he hasn’t shot a film that wasn’t part of the “Twilight” franchise during that time.  That’s all going to change this month when production of the the drama “Remember Me” begins production in New York.  Now, Summit Entertainment is rounding out the cast for Pattinson’s next flick and, more importantly, his next romantic leading lady.  Who made the cut?  According to Variety, Emilie de Ravin, better known as Claire on “Lost.” 

“Remember Me” finds Pattinson playing a man distraught after his brother’s suicide destroys his parent’s marriage.  De Ravin will play Pattinson’s antithesis: a woman who takes charge of her life after seeing her mother killed in front of her own eyes.  Pierce Brosnan and Lena Olin are set to play Pattinson’s parents and Cooper de Ravin’s father.

The picture will be directed by Allen Coulter (“Hollywoodland”) and was written by newcomer Will Fetters and Jenny Lumet (“Rachel Getting Married”). 

As for Ravin, this won’t be her big screen debut.  The 27-year-old actress previously appeared in the cult indie “Brick,” “The Hills Have Eyes” and is featured in Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies.”  She’s also know for playing Tess for two years on the The WB series “Roswell.”

Pattinson recently finished production on “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” and after “Remember Me” will transition to “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”
