Sure, the “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” hype is still going strong, but Robert Pattinson is getting props from an entirely different sector of Tinseltown- famed director David Cronenberg.

The “Remember Me” stud made quite an impression on Cronenberg, who directed Rob in the upcoming flick “Cosmopolis.”

David explained, "Ultimately, I felt he was the guy. Once again, intuition. I saw his movies, including ones maybe his Twi-Hard fans don't know about, like 'Little Ashes.' Maybe they saw 'Remember Me,' I'm not sure."

"Really, he's fantastic. He's sensational. Really, I'm telling you. He's a great actor. It's obvious in the movie. It's not like maybe yes, maybe no. It's obvious."

However, “Cosmopolis” is a pretty serious departure from the “Twilight” realm. "I can't pretend that I'm not aware of that. This is an unusual jump for him. He said it himself. It's scary. It's a scary thing because he's never really had to carry a movie quite that way before, totally on his own. He's in every scene. He's almost in every shot, so scary for him, but for an actor, scary is good. You don't want to be bored. You don't want to be too confident."
