Now that Robert Pattinson has finished work on Breaking Dawn, the two-part, final installment of The Twilight Saga, he is moving on to director David Cronenberg's adaptation of Cosmopolis.
Based on the novel by Don DeLillo, Cosmopolis stars Pattinson as a young multimillionaire named Eric Packer, whose limo ride to get a haircut becomes a 24-hour odyssey around Manhattan that includes a rap star's funeral, presidential-visit traffic jams, terrorist attacks, stalkings, and frequent run-ins with his wife, played by Sarah Gadon (Dream House).
Cronenberg's daughter, photographer Cait Cronenberg used her photo of Cronenberg and Gadon in the movie, coincidentally in the back of a vehicle. Her photo arrived just days before set photos were released online, again showing Pattinson and Gadon meeting up, this time in a cafe.
Cosmopolis is currently shooting in Toronto, is set to open sometime in 2012. Samantha Morton (Sweet and Lowdown, The Messenger) and Juliette Binoche co-star. Posted 05.30.11 by Ryan
