Cosmopolis has been moved on Rob’s IMDbPro page to Films in Production *woot woot*.  You know I’m going to give you any tidbit about this movie.  Anything

Yeah baby … according to my IMDbPro account … this

Okay it’s also stating filming dates – March 2011 to May 2011.  Not going to mention filming locations not interested in assisting the stalkers.

I never thought I’d post Colin on here but yes I’m happy to say thanks to MTV here’s his well wishes for Rob and Cosmopolis.  Do we really need any further confirmation that this is a done deal?

If you want to read the article, click on the link above.   Oh lordy lordy … I think I stopped breathing when he said “it’s a wonderful script”.  We knew that – otherwise Rob wouldn’t be saying “yes”.

Hmm Rob I know how could I go past this article by Jonathan Sullivan of The Film Stage when he introduces it with:

“I’m going to just get this right out in the open: I don’t hate Robert Pattinson. Sure, the Twilight franchise is wretched, but that’s more the material than the person and his other roles (Remember Me, the upcoming Water for Elephants) prove that he isn’t just a pretty boy who is going to ride the coattails of a beloved franchise; this man wants to actually try.”

See seriously how could I not continue to read or post.  Jonathan then goes on to say:

“Cosmopolis takes over the course of one day in the year 2000 and follows young Eric Packer, a financial wizard who is taking his fancy limousine out to go get a haircut and is prepping to risk his entire fortune on betting against the rise of the Japanese yen. He keeps getting sidetracked though, as he runs into a protest, a presidential visit, and a rapper’s funeral which keeps traffic at a stand still. During this time, he indulges in sadistic and voyeuristic thoughts and waxes philosophic about the state of the country from the back of his limo. In layman’s terms, the guy’s kind of a douchebag. Pattinson will be playing this character …

See that sounds great…for a novel. As for a movie, I don’t know if it will translate as well since what I’ve read up on it makes it sound like the main character just sits in his limo and does a bunch of monologues about assorted things. But then again, Cronenberg isn’t a horrible director and I’ve got faith in his vision; not only is he directing the movie, he’s also written the script for it so he’s got to have something invested in the material. What I also like is that Pattinson didn’t take this movie for the money or the glory; instead, he signed on because he admires not only the work of the director, but Don DeLillo‘s novels as well. It’s reasons like those that keep me rooting for the pretty boy vampire; I just hope Cosmopolis gives him the chance to shine.”

Oh Jonathan you are a prince!

And to give you some background that I haven’t mentioned in previous Cosmopolis posts.  David Cronenberg has been trying to make this movie since 2009, so it’s not something new.  Colin Farrell signed on in May 2010 and so although I thought it was insane that they were remaking  Total Recall, I am now very happy that that is going ahead lol.   Although it’s going to be pretty hard to not think of Arnie if I ever see that remake.  I found this info whilst snooping around IMDbPro yesterday, but got a little sidetracked.

Oh I thought we could do with some more info on Rob’s supposed new role as Eric Packer in Cosmopolis. HollywoodLife has apparently read the script and this is what they had to say (better hold onto your hats ladies):

PLOT: R-Patz plays a 28-year-old multi-billionaire finance guru who drives around Manhattan in a high-tech, pimped out limo in order to get a haircut, with many interruptions along the way. The entire movie is set within a 24 hour period and most of it takes place in his limosine. Eric Packer loses a lot of money for his clients by telling them to bet against the yen, and he is then stalked by two men who are out to get him. Eric curses, cheats on his wife, and seems to have an obsesssion with sex.

JUICY PARTS:

Eric has a strained relationship with his wife, 22-year-old Elise Shifrin. He doesn’t seem to know her very well and often asks her “When are we going to have sex again?”

    • Elise didn’t realize Eric’s eyes were blue until after they’d been married for 22 days, apparently he likes to keep his sunglasses on
    • He cheats on his wife with Didi Fancher,  a 40-year-old “scorched blonde”
    • He GETS SHIRTLESS!!! (yay!) And then he drops his pants and goes spread eagle for a doctor’s exam while speaking to his female co-worker who is in the room
    • Eric drinks brandy, drops the F-bomb multiple times and gets into fist fights
    • He shoots someone while driving around in his limo
    • Eric demands he get tasered, but instead drops vodka on his … er, nether regions

NOTABLE LINE: (Eric) “I like your mother. You have your mother’s breasts.” (Elise) “Her Breasts?” (Eric) “Great stand-up t*ts.”

BOTTOM LINE: This film focuses on a darker, misogynstic side of Rob we haven’t seen before. I mean, can you imagine R-Patz as a cheating, drinking, bad-boy? Marion Cotillardand Paul Giamatti have reportedly sign up to star alongside Rob. Does this mean Marion will be playing Rob’s wife? What do you think of that pairing?”

Oh HollywoodLife yes yes Marion is his wife.  Hahaha I like the pairing.  As for a misogynist – well I consider myself that anyway LOL.  And YES I can imagine Rob as a cheating, drinking, bad boy – many times – oops sorry I said that out  loud.  Please don’t let this just be a rumour.  Although I’m not sure if I survive Georges I will survive this.  Edward Cullen has well and truly left the building …

I’m not sure if this is true , but I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love Don DeLillo novels. According to Deadline New York … this:

“Robert Pattinson has booked his first major lead for when he completes The Twilight Saga. Pattinson will star in Cosmopolis, the Don DeLillo novel adaptation that David Cronenberg wrote and will direct. Pattinson, who just starred with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz in Fox 2000’s Francis Lawrence-directed adaptation of the Elizabeth Gruen novel Water For Elephants, will play Eric Packer. A financial wunderkind, Packer 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. Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are also reportedly doing the film.”

However, IMDbPro states Colin Farrell as Eric Parker.  Time will tell if Deadline really did get the exclusive or they are just pulling our chain.

Thanks to Lion_Lamb for the tip.

UPDATE:  According to the Playlist:

“We have to admit, our first words upon hearing this were: “What the shit?” Haters gonna hate, but like it or not, Robert Pattinson is in a position to get things green lit, as he is taking over for Colin Farrell in David Cronenberg‘s “Cosmopolis.”

Based on Don DeLillo‘s book of the same name, the film follows 24 hours in the life of a newly married billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) as he cheats on his wife, is pursued by a stalker, gets attacked by a protester and gradually loses his entire fortune over the course of a single day.  The adaptation was penned by Cronenberg himself and cast is currently rounded out byMarion Cotillard who will play Pattinson’s wife and Paul Giamatti as one of the two men stalking the billionaire. Let’s just slow this down for a second: Robert Pattinson and Marion Cotillard are going to play a married couple? Please.

So why has Farrell bailed? Well, with the actor signed recently signed on to star in the “Total Recall” reboot that is scheduled to go in front of cameras this spring, roughly around the same time as Cronenberg’s film and we figure the bigger paycheck won out. The current plan is for Pattinson to finish his work on “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” with Bill Condon and move right on over to Cronenberg’s film.

Well, we suppose we’re glad “Cosmopolis” is still getting made but we think the Pattinson casting is totally, totally wrong. But maybe he’ll prove us wrong…..right?”

Um yes Kevin you WILL be proven wrong.
