Robert Pattinson is starring in a mystery romance movie called The Souvenir, it was announced at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday. Martin Scorsese has also come on board as an executive producer.

The film is set in the 1980s, and focuses on a female film student who embarks on her first serious relationship. But as the romance progresses, it becomes unclear whether her lover is really truthful and trustworthy. Pattinson is portraying an actor, while Tom Burke is playing the sketchy boyfriend. The cast also includes Ariane Labed and Richard Ayoade, although the role of the young woman is still open.

Though Scorsese is a revered director himself, the project is being helmed by Joanna Hoggs. Interestingly, it will be a two-part production. The first portion will shoot this summer, while the second half will film next summer. It’s unclear if they will be released as separate installments or one long feature.

Pattinson will be at the Cannes Film Festival next week for the world premiere of his latest film, Good Time. As Gossip Cop has reported, the movie was chosen to compete for the coveted Palme d’Or, and the debut screening is now set for Thursday, May 25. The Good Time trailer was released this past Tuesday, showing Pattinson as a criminal desperate to save his brother after he’s jailed following a botched bank robbery.

Depending how things work out with The Souvenir, Pattinson could find himself back at the festival in a few years to promote that. The actor also has another movie, Damsel, currently in post-production.
