Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight series, has signed on for two movies with director Michael Corrente (Brooklyn Rules, A Shot at Glory), according to Variety. The first, Loosies, is about a New York City pickpocket who discovers that a former one-night stand is pregnant with his child. The second, the biopic Paz, recounts the comeback of boxer Vinny Paz after a near-fatal car crash. Facinelli wrote the script for Loosies, which will start production in the summer, while Paz is slated for 2011.
