Here’s a very good turn of events for David Cronenberg‘s adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis, which is now scheduled to shoot in late May.
The film stars Robert Pattinson as a young billionaire, who during the course of one day traveling across Manhattan in his limo, manages to cheat on his wife, deal with protesters and another antagonist or two, and encounter some financial trouble. We don’t know who’ll play his wife (Marion Cotillard was once set, and Keira Knightley was rumored, then debunked) but we do know that Paul Giamatti will be one of the antagonists.
And now Juliette Binoche is in the cast, and Mathieu Almaric may be along for the ride, too. Read More »

David Cronenberg‘s adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis seems to be undergoing some big changes. Originally announced with Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard as the primary cast members, we recently saw the first change when Mr. Farrell signed on for a remake of Total Recall instead. His replacement in Cosmopolis is Robert Pattinson.
That leaves something of a potential mis-match when it comes to the film’s leading lady, and a fansite noticed that the production company behind the film now lists Keira Knightley as the sole female cast member. Read More »
Let’s look at the different career paths of the two major male stars from Twilight. Taylor Lautner is doing what seems to be boilerplate action/tentpole stuff: Abduction and possibly Stretch bloody Armstrong. Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, is going a little more high-minded, co-starring with Cristoph Waltz in Water For Elephants and now taking over for Colin Farrell in David Cronenberg‘s adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis. I know which actor I can respect more, without question. But what does this mean for the dedicated David Cronenberg fan? Read More »
