According to Deadline, Mulligan will star in the film as a “femme fatale” who teams up with her boyfriend to kidnap a rich man and hold him for ransom. Things don’t go according to plan…

Pattinson will apparently play the love of Mulligan’s life, who is not the boyfriend she’s with now. Deadline describes the role as “flashy.” The film will be directed by James Marsh who earned an Oscar for the documentary “Man on Wire.”

With “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” set to open in November, the franchise that made Pattinson a star is coming to a close. But he’s already lined up several projects including sci-fi Western “The Rover” with Guy Pearce and military action drama “Mission Blacklist.”
