Jules when you said you were going to use a manip and I might not want to post – you didn’t say you were using one of my ultimate fave pics of Rob from Vogue.  No seriously how can I NOT share this beauty with you all – I need to go home and change my desktop STAT.  Brilliant just brilliant.

Exciting news, Cosmopolis now has an official website woo hooo.  There is nothing really new on there at the moment, but great to see a website is already up & running. The site however does confirm Juliette Binoche as Didi Fancher, Paul Giamatti as Benno Levin & Mathieu Amalric as Andre Petrescu (aka the pastry assassin) in the cast list. I LOVE the pic they’ve used for Rob on the front page of the site.  Great to see they’ve chosen a non Twilight related one – smart choice.   Also happens to be one of my ultimate faves. For those who aren’t aware, the pic is from the Dukes Of Hazzard Premiere back in 2005. So looking forward to this movie.  CANNOT wait for Rob to start filming.  To visit the site, just click on the pic above.

Okay the post title is not verbatim, but DJ Pangburn from Death+Taxes Mag had this to say about Rob and Cosmopolis (Note: *spoilers after the cut*).  I just love me favourable articles:

Don DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis” is a vintage, icy satire.  It might share the NYC setting and financial playground staked out by Oliver Stone in “Wall Street,” but whereas Charlie Sheen stands at his balcony and asks, “Who am I,” Eric Packer looks at his skyscraper penthouse from the street below and remembers, “I want a haircut.”

And so begins Packer’s Ulyssian odyssey through Manhattan as a 28 year old billionaire hedge fund manager, who’s made his money in tech stocks, and has an almost abstract-nihilistic approach to life and business.

According to ClapFilms, Juliette will play Didi Fancher.  Well I knew she was too old to play Eric’s wife, Elise, even though there were some rumours around saying Cronenberg might change Elise’s age to be older.  Still no news on who will play Elise though.  We already knew that Paul was playing Levin.

Thanks to Roberta for the tip.  Oh and if you want to discuss Cosmopolis, please head over to our discussion post here *Warning this thread contains spoilers*

So as I mentioned yesterday, we thought we would do a post that is basically a discussion thread for Cosmopolis.  Your thoughts on the book, which scenes you desperately want to see, maybe what you don’t want to see.  Now I know this book is sometimes slightly graphic so all I’m going to say is – don’t think I won’t moderate because I will.

So for those who don’t want any *spoilers* or who haven’t quite yet finished reading the book, DO NOT CLICK on “more” until you are ready to come in and chat.  Oh and perhaps you might all want to bookmark this post because I don’t want to sticky post it and it will, of course, disappear down the page with post updates (I’ve added a new category called Discussion Thread that you can also find under categories in the sidebar search bar.)

News seems to be coming out in dribs and drabs and nothing is confirmed, but according to Mathieu Amalric has joined the cast:

“After much speculation, ‘Cosmopolis’ had finally, by the producer (Alfama Films) some news, confirming what we had said earlier. Robert Pattinson (Twilight: Breaking Dawn) and Paul Giamatti (“Shrink”) are even part of the cast, being accompanied by Juliette Binoche (Copy As) and Mathieu Amalric (Tournée).

Based on the homonymous book by Don DeLillo, author of bestsellers such as “Underworld” and “White Noise”, “Cosmopolis” follows a billionaire 28 years as it crosses the city of New York to get a haircut, which reveals a true odyssey. In between he deceives the woman is chased and attacked and eventually ends up losing his entire fortune, all in one day.

Who will also collaborate on the film is Howard Shore, David Cronenberg’s usual collaborator and author of soundtracks for the trilogy “Lord of the Rings” or “Silence of the Lambs.” Also Suschitzy Peter, Director of Photography at the usual universe of David Cronenberg, and has in its run movies like “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Crash,” will continue its partnership with filmmaker in ‘Cosmopolis’. Filming of ‘Cosmopolis’ will commence on May 24 in Toronto, Canada, and will last for nine weeks. Will soon be released new names involved in this project.

Also @Larry411 tweeted this whilst I was asleep last night:

“Latest COSMOPOLIS production info”

“COSMOPOLIS” Feature Film
STATUS: April 4
LOCATION: Toronto – New York
PRODUCER: Paulo Branco – Martin Katz – Renee Tab WRITER/DIRECTOR: David Cronenberg
PM: Joseph Boccia – Robin Reelis
CAST: Robert Pattinson – Paul Giamatti

It is an April day in the year 2000 and an era is about to end. The booming times of market optimism — when the culture boiled with money and corporations seemed more vital and influential than governments — are poised to crash. Eric Packer (Pattinson), a billionaire asset manager at age twenty-eight, emerges from his penthouse triplex and settles into his lavishly customized white stretch limousine. Today he is a man with two missions: to pursue a cataclysmic bet against the yen and to get a haircut across town. Stalled in traffic by a presidential motorcade, a music idol’s funeral, and a violent political demonstration, Eric receives a string of visitors — experts on security, technology, currency, finance, and a few sexual partners — as the limo sputters toward an increasingly uncertain future. Based on the novel by Don DeLillo. (Giamatti plays the dual role of Benno/Levin/Richard Steers. / Production office opens Mid-March.)”

Note:  Filming is still set to commence 24 May 2011.
