Robert Pattinson is heading to outer space. A rep for Pattinson confirms to Gossip Cop that he has signed on to star as a futuristic astronaut in a still untitled science-fiction film that takes place outside the borders of our solar system.

The movies is being directed and co-written by French filmmaker Claire Denis, and is set to begin production in late 2015 or early 2016. No release date has been announced. In the meantime, Pattinson can next be seen in director Anton Corbin’s Life, which tells the story about the friendship between 1950s magazine photographer Dennis Stock and James Dean.

Gossip Cop is actually happy to confirm a true story about Pattinson. We’re far too often barraged by inaccurate reports about the handsome star. On Tuesday, for instance, Gossip Cop busted a fake story from a webloid that claimed Pattinson had “lost trust” in women, specifically his fiancee, FKA Twigs. A source close to the couple assured Gossip Cop that Pattinson and FKA Twigs are still very much in the process of planning their wedding. Contrary to other bogus headlines, he is not having “second thoughts” about their nuptials.

Tell us what you think about Pattinson playing an astronaut in Claire Denis’ first English-language movie.
