Cosmopolis to Begin Filming in Toronto on May 24th   5 comments

From Idol Vine

It’s been a couple of years since David Cronenberg got involved in the film adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel Cosmopolis and we’re happy to let you know that shooting is set to begin in Toronto on May 24. There’ve been quite a few casting switches but it looks like all is settled. Robert Pattinson gets top billing, but the cast includes Jay Baruchel, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon, Juliette Binoche and Kevin Durand.

Pattinson plays the character Eric Packer, a young, multi-billionaire asset manager who sets out one day in Manhattan (there goes Toronto pretending to be NYC again) in his fabulously appointed stretch limo to get a haircut. The story/parable takes place over one day, during which Packer loses everything. The ending is apocalyptic.

Pattinson says Cosmopolis is one of his favourite novels and that the role is very hard, but he is “trying to turn it.”

One other note: the musical score will be by Canadian composer Howard Shore, a frequent collaborator with Cronenberg (they worked together on the opera version of The Fly, also Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, Scanners, Eastern Promises, and others). Shore also wrote the music for The Lord of the Rings and is working on The Hobbit.
