DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis” To Be Directed By David Cronenberg
HedgeCo News: Horror master David Cronenberg has taken on Don DeLillo’s #1 bestseller “Cosmopolis” and has signed Robert Pattinson to star in the thriller.
Like James Joyce’s Ulysses, “Cosmopolis” covers roughly one day of time and includes highly sexed women and the theme of father-son separation.
The plot involves a young hedge fund billionaire (Pattinson) who hops in his limo to get a haircut but in a course of traveling across Manhattan, loses his fortune, cheats on his wife, and is threatened by two mysterious folks.
The film also stars Juliette Binoche as the the wife, Paul Giamatti as the stalker and Mathieu Amalric’s part is yet unknown. Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard were originally cast as the lead.
