Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci star in "Bel Ami," which Magnolia Pictures has acquired
The movie premiered at last month's Berlin International Film Festival.
Set in 19th century Paris, the film is a retelling of Guy de Maupassant's tale of blackmail, manipulation and social climbing.
Pattinson stars as George Duroy, who seduces influential women of Paris, played by Ricci, Thurman and Thomas, in order to move into the upper echelons of society.
"'Bel Ami' is a well-crafted, appealing film with a terrific ensemble cast," Magnolia's president, Eamonn Bowles, said in a statement.
