“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.)

*April 4 means production start date, not filming start date. Paulo Branco confirmed in the ScreenDaily article that shooting starts May 24

She is much too old for the role.

i haven't read the his wife older? i assume she'd be playing the wife.

I think she may be playing the art dealer - one of the women Eric cheats on his wife with? If so, I think that's good casting. She's supposed to be about 47. Great news.

This is great. I adore Juliette Binoche's work. She was the only reason I stayed to watch The English Patient. I agree with @debbi she is playing the older art dealer, she is not playing Elise, his wife. I am really looking forward to a whole new Robert in this movie. I know this is lowbrow, but I will admit it I want to see more of Robert than we have seen before, call it pervy but man this is going to be one sexy and violent pic that I am biting my nails to see.
