A UK release date has been announced for Robert Pattinson’s new film Bel Ami.

Optimum Releasing have revealed that the UK release date for the movie will be August 2011.

This date may change, but it is thought to be around August so Rob fans won’t have long to wait to see the film.

Robert previously revealed that he doesn’t think Edward Cullen would approve of his character in Bel Ami.

Robert Pattinson’s character in Bel Ami, Georges Duroy, is the exact opposite of no-sex-before-marriage vampire Edward in the Twilight flicks.

‘There’s something fun about Bel Ami, going from Edward to some guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them, Edward so wouldn’t approve – and I thought that was a funny irony.’ The 24-year-old actor told Celebs Sunday.

‘In Bel Ami all the women my character screws over are all attracted to him to begin with, so he starts having affairs with them and destroys their lives.’ he added.
