Cosmopolis Soundtrack Info   Leave a comment

Preview of the soundtrack

The soundtrack for Cosmopolis reunites composer Howard Shore and the band METRIC for another cinematic collaboration. While writing the score for David Cronenberg’s film adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis, Shore conceived of a particular live sound to achieve his vision and invited METRIC to perform the score and co-write three songs. The music was recorded in November 2011 at the band’s own Giant Studios in Toronto, produced by Howard Shore and METRIC guitarist Jimmy Shaw, and mixed by John O’Mahony at Liberty Studios in Toronto and Electric Lady Studios in NYC. The result is an atmospheric, urban soundscape of analog synths and layered guitars featuring the hypnotic vocals of METRIC lead singer Emily Haines. The Cosmopolis soundtrack also features “Mecca” by Somali Singer/Rapper K’NAAN with lyrics by the artist and Don DeLillo.

EOne confirmed as ‘Cosmopolis’ North American and UK Distributor   1 comment

The Hollywood Reporter confirms EOne as ‘Cosmopolis’

The deal with Kinology gives the Canadian distributor the North American rights to the thriller that stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti, ahead of its Cannes debut.

TORONTO – Entertainment One has acquired the U.S. and British distribution rights to David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis from Paris-based Kinology.

That gives Toronto-based Entertainment One the North American rights to Cronenberg’s latest film, which is to screen in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Canadian distributor earlier secured the Canadian rights to Cronenberg’s thriller, which is based on Don DeLillo’s novella of the same name.
Cosmopolis stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti, and portrays a hedge fund trader who is stalked while his fortune evaporates.
Cosmopolis, a Canada-France co-production, is produced by Paulo Branco of Alfama Films and Martin Katz of Prospero Pictures, with Grégoire Melin of Kinology on board as a co-producer.

From Deadline

LOS ANGELES/TORONTO/LONDON – MAY 3, 2012 – Entertainment One (“eOne”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the US and UK distribution rights to COSMOPOLIS in all media, from Paris-based Kinology. As previously announced, eOne will also handle the theatrical release of the film in Canada.

Based on award-winning writer Don DeLillo’s novella of the same name, Cosmopolis is a contemporary thriller about a hedge fund trader who is stalked while his fortune evaporates under the weight of his cynical bets against the survival of the global economy.

Directed by the highly-esteemed and multi-award winning David Cronenberg, the film stars Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche and Paul Giamatti. Cosmopolis is a presentation of Paulo Branco and Martin Katz. The film is produced by Paulo Branco of Alfama Films and Martin Katz of Prospero Pictures and is co-produced by Grégoire Melin of Kinology.

“Cosmopolis is a thought-provoking thriller with the perfect blend of dark humour and irony. It’s a highly-compelling film with an all-star cast. This is certainly an exciting film for the US as we continue to grow our theatrical business, and a great addition to the Canadian and UK slates alike,” said David Reckziegel, President, eOne Films North America.“David Cronenberg’s innovative work continues to blow audiences away. We’re thrilled to have this standout film for three of eOne’s core territories,” added Alex Hamilton, Director, eOne Films UK.

The deal was negotiated by Reckziegel and Hamilton for eOne and Grégoire Melin for Kinology.

Cosmopolis is expected to be in theatres in Canada, the US and this UK later this summer. eOne is looking forward to the Cannes Film Festival and announcing more acquisitions in the coming weeks.

 

Deadline – Earlier when it was closing deal

Cannes is a month away and already the deals are percolating. Yesterday, The Weinstein Company paid upwards of $3 million for the Dustin Hoffman-directed Quartet. Now, I’m told EOne is closing in on a deal to pay $2 million for North American and UK distribution rights to Cosmopolis, the David Cronenberg-directed adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel that stars Robert Pattinson as financial wunderkind Eric Packer, who risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day.

His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place. Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti and Samantha Morton also star. eOne has distribution pipelines in Canada and England, but it will likely have to find a distributor for the U.S. Maybe it will be Bob Berney, whom, rumor has it, will be revealing his own distribution company at the upcoming Cannes, after leaving FilmDistrict last year. The acquisition price seems high, though Cronenberg certainly has a following in his home turf in Canada.

New Robert Pattinson Interview with Premiere about ‘Mission: Blacklist’   4 comments

From Premiere (translation via RP Life)
Robert Pattinson, who is bound to suprise a lot of people in three weeks when Cosmopolis will be presented at Cannes, doesn’t seem to want to stop there yet. The ‘adult’ turn the star star is taking will go further with Mission: Blacklist, the new movie by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, director of the impressive Johnny mad Dog in 2008. The movie is a thriller inspired by Eric Maddox’s book, the military interrogator who was the brain of the operation that lead to the capture of Saddam Hussein in December 2003. Erik Jendresen, screenwriter for Band of Brothers is in charge of the adaptation, with ashooting that should be starting in the fall.‘We’re going to do some scout locations in Iraq soon.’

“As jean-Stéphane is used to work with non professional actors, I thought I had no chance of getting the role,” Robert Pattinson told us recently. “But we met a few times and we clicked. He found a fascinating way to treat that subject. It’s weird because it’s a movie about war but it’s essentially focusing on the interrogations. The language and the barriers he could create played an important role. But it’s essentially teh story of a true sldier, Eric Maddox, with who we’re leaving for Iraq soon for some scouting.’

“Jean-Stéphane is truly surprising” says Pattinson. “He has talent when it comes to meeting people. Like, for example, out of nowhere, he got to spend some time with the Iraqi Minister of Culture. he also got to meet this guys who was a former chief of the Hussein clan and he was really closed to him. I asked him: ‘How do you get to meet a man like that?’ He said he met him in a bar in Paris!”

After Johnny Mad Dog, immersed in the every day life of extremely violent kids – turned solders – in Liberia, Sauvaire seems to have found a new subject cut out for his explosive film making technics. “Johnny Mad Dog was an extremely strong piece, that possessed a truly documentary value, while still being cinematic,” says Pattinson with enthusiasm. “I cannot wait to work with him on Mission: Blacklist. It’s going to be a f***ing good movie.”
