'Bel Ami' Update

Uma Thurman is set to help Robert Pattinson cut his teeth as a bad-boy journalist in “Bel Ami,” which begins filming next month.

“They are planning on doing the film ‘Bel Ami’ in London,” Thurman’s rep told PEOPLE, confirming the actress’ involvement. Of a reported scripted kiss between the stars, the rep said, “The plot of the movie is not being released just yet.”

Pattinson — cast in May in the story based on the 19th-century novel by Guy De Maupassant — will also be joined onscreen by Christina Ricci, reportedly as a promiscuous young housewife, and Kristin Scott Thomas.

The actor, 23, who plays a Parisian soldier-turned-journalist, has said that the lead female role in the movie “needs to be literally inspirational.” One can only guess that Thurman, 39, fills the bill — and then some.

Finally! News about Rob without Kristen. I don't wish her any ill will, she's a lovely lady. Moving forward, congrat's to Uma! Someone my own age to envy. Give Rob an extra kiss from ordinary women like myself, I'm not ever going to get the chance. Thank you Rob, for reminding me that there are beautiful men out there. I've been too busy to pay attention until I saw you. Hugs
