The actor began filming Cosmopolis opposite Sarah Gadon in Toronto on Wednesday.
Pattinson, who plays a 28-year-old multi-millionaire in the thriller, looks dapper as he shares a limo ride with Canadian actress Gadon.
The photo was snapped by photographed Caitlin Cronenberg, whose father David Cronenberg is directing the movie.
The film is about a day in the life of Eric Packer (played by Pattinson), whose journey across Manhattan by limo takes bizarre twists and turns as he meets a cast of characters and risks his fortune.
Based on Don DeLillo's novel, the film also stars Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Samantha Morton.
