London: The romantic vampire of ‘Twilight’, Robert Pattinson faces some marketability issues for his upcoming movie 'Bel Ami'.

The bosses of 'Bel Ami’ are doubtful about marketability of Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson.

The 24-year-old actor plays a corrupt journalist who manipulates his way through rich women to become one of the most powerful men in France.

 The film which was shot in the UK and Budapest is ready for release but no date has been confirmed.

"We were really true to the book and because the guy is basically someone who wins everything at the end it's really difficult to market it - especially with me in it,” says Pattinson. 

The film also stars Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristen Scott Thomas, which is produced by media mogul Simon Fuller who created 'American Idol'.
