Bel Ami

One of Screenterrier's stars of tomorrow Holliday Grainger is to star alongside Robert Pattinson in BEL AMI which starts shooting in various locations in London and Budapest next week.

Holly (represented by Troika) will play the part of Suzanne. It's a leap into the big time for Holly who is also set to make a big impact with the iminent release of the highly regarded British independent feature The Scouting Book for Boys.

Bel Ami is the story of Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson), who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitute’s embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.

In the script, the character of Suzanne is Mme Rousset (Kristin Scott-Thomas)  and Rousset’s (Colm Meaney) young daughter and is pivotal to the story. Young Suzanne Rousset is closely involved with Robert Pattinson’s character of Georges Duroy in Bel Ami.

Holly also starred opposite Robert Pattinson in 2007 as pregnant teen Charlie Cooper in The Bad Mothers Handbook.

The film will also star former child star Christina Ricci and Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas.
