'Cosmopolis' Update: Italian Distributor and Production Status

David Cronenberg and the cast of A Dangerous Method are on the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter. In the article there's a small mention about Cosmopolis' production status.

A Dangerous Method won't be released domestically until November, but the filmmaker is already at work editing his next movie, an adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel, Cosmopolis.

Variety reports RAI Cinema as Cosmopolis Italian distributor
Italy's RAI Cinema -- which has a massive 22 pics unspooling in Venice -- has announced several international acquisitions, including David Cronenberg's Don DeLillo adaptation "Cosmopolis," Rob Cohen's revenge thriller "I, Alex Cross," and Jan de Bont's China-set "Mulan."


Given that Italian movies are humming locally, RAI Cinema's current policy is to buy less American product, picking mostly high-profile Hollywood titles that can generate big box office.

However "it's not easy to find available American blockbusters, so we've also focused on smaller films," said RAI Cinema managing director Paolo Del Brocco.

These include Spanish helmer Rodrigo Cortes' paranormal thriller "Red Lights," starring Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver, which RAI purchased from Santa Monica-based Parlay Films.

It acquired "Cosmopolis" starring Robert Pattinson from Gaul's Kinology; "I, Alex Cross," toplining Tyler Perry, from QED Intl.; and the live-action "Mulan," starring Ziyi Zhang, from Arclight Films Intl. unit Easternlight Films.
