Robert Pattinson to Retire From Acting in 2010

Atlanta, GA 4/01/2009 11:21 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Robert Pattinson has announced he plans to retire from acting after completing his contract with Summit Entertainment – which includes the Twilight sequel New Moon and the third movie Eclipse.

Pattinson, who shot to fame in 2008 after playing vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight, says he wants to pursue a music career.

New Moon, also starring Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, is due for release in November 2009. Eclipse is due for release in 2010. When asked if he would return to complete the fourth film Breaking Dawn, which isn’t a part of the contract, Pattinson said, “It will depend on the quality of the next two films and the demand of the Twilight fans.”

 “Acting was a passion of mine from an early age, but as I have grown older I have found other ways of expressing myself that appeal to me on a more personal level. I certainly hope this doesn’t upset my fanbase as they have made me who I am, but who I am goes a bit deeper than simply being an actor,” he says of his decision to retire.

Pattinson says he plans to record an album. “I never knew how much singing that one song would affect me. I was never sure if it should even be used, but it sort of became my jumping off point. I also sang three songs on the soundtrack for How to Be, which was a lot of fun and I think I just have so much more to share with the world through my music that I feel I would be a fool not to jump on it right away,” he said.

Meanwhile, Pattinson has several independent films due for release soon – ‘The Summer House,’ ‘How to Be’ and ‘Little Ashes.’
