Someone Will Assassinate Robert Pattinson

Wednesday, January 5 by

David Cronenberg has kicked Colin Farrell out of his limo and invited Robert Pattinson in. The Team Edward ambassador himself has signed on to play Eric Packer in Cosmopolis. Let’s assume I made a joke about his surname and move right on to the synopsis provided by Deadline:

“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.”

I can understand Cronenberg wanting to spend his time cooped up in a limo with Pattinson rather than Farrell. He probably smells better and drinks less. But does an audience that’s comprised of more than just horny tweens and horny housewives want to take that ride? Maybe if only to see something horrific birth from Pattinson’s stomach.

Do you like this story?

    …I want to take the ride, because Robert is respected by me as an actor of other movies than Twilight, a brilliant musician, and a rare human that has as much beauty on the inside, as he does on the outside…
