Robert Pattinson's film 'Bel Ami,' in which he plays a 19th century gigolo, is no longer in limbo. The movie was just picked up for U.S. distribution by Sony Pictures. Photos of Pattinson romancing costars Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci have already been released for the movie, which is based on a story by French author Guy de Maupassant. The film will begin its international rollout in Feb. 2012, although its specific North American release date has yet to be announced.

'Bel Ami' was directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod. In this tale of ambition, power and seduction, Pattinson play a penniless former soldier whose looks help propel him into the upper reaches -- and bedrooms -- of Parisian society in the 1890s.
