Memoirs is about new lovers who may or may not get together as they're both beset by family tragedy – familiar territory for someone who played one of a threatened coven of vampires who falls in love with a social misfit from a broken home.
The film, from an original screenplay, is being handled by Summit Entertainment, the same studio behind 22-year-old Pattinson's first vampire flick and its eagerly awaited coming sequel, New Moon, says the Hollywood Reporter. Also in talks to helm the movie is Allen Coulter, who directed Hollywoodland.
