Robert Pattinson To Star In David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS
Twilight fans who are afraid they won’t see any more of Robert Pattinson once TWILIGHT BREAKING DAWN hits theatres, fear not!
According to THR, The popular Brit has signed on to star in COSMOPOLIS, David Cronenberg’s adapation of the Don DeLillo novel. Pattinson replaces Colin Farrell in the role of Eric Parker, a 28-year-old financial wizard and billionare. Farrell was initially signed to the project, but had to back out due to a filming conflict. Also starring Paul Giamatti and Marion Cotillard, Cosmopolis follows Parker as he travels Manhattan in his stretch limo. His goal is simply to get a haircut, but his journey is obstructed by obstacles including a presidential visit, an attack by anarchists and a rapper’s funeral. Throughout the course of the day, he battles with financial issues as he bets against the rise of the yen, a downfall that parallels his own life.
Cosmopolis is currently eyeing a mid-May premiere in Toronto.
