My god, look at Robert Pattinson. He’s a busy movie star, the idol of millions of teenage girls across the globe. Now look at him, acting in David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis, about a billionaire who embarks on a whirlwind limo ride through Manhattan. You can see a larger version of the first image from the movie by clicking the image above. It’s also inhabited by Sarah Gadon, who presumably is playing Pattinson’s love interest.

The movie also star Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Jay Baruchel and Samantha Morton, all of whom are not pictured here (you’re welcome). Now would you just look at that Robert Pattinson already!

Hollywood’s tallest actor Kevin Durand has joined the cast of David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis. In the film, he will play Robert Pattinson‘s head of security. To prepare for the role, he will practice stiff-arming overzealous teenage girls and some weird moms.

In the film, Pattinson plays a newlywed billionaire who loses his riches and lady in the course of one day. One very shitty day. There’s no word yet whether Durand will be expected to make love to an insect, turn into an insect, make love to James Spader, have a butt-naked knife fight, ward off mutant children, or have his head explode. But given that this is a Cronenberg film, you can expect any of those events are likely to happen within the first act. (Variety)

Casting Round-Up: Penelope Cruz, Thandie Newton, Jay Baruchel, And Maggie Grace http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-penelope-cruz-thandie-newton-and-jay-baruchel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/casting-round-up-penelope-cruz-thandie-newton-and-jay-baruchel/#comments Thu, 07 Apr 2011 00:45:45 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205801 Woody Allen, Tyler Perry and David Cronenberg will direct them. In different projects, though I'd be curious to know what the six of them would accomplish together.

It’s time for another casting round-up, cowpokes. We sat ourselves down in front of studio lots, waited fer critters (celebrities) to walk out, hog tied ‘em, and asked them what parts they got. Here’s what y’all need to know:

PENELOPE CRUZ will team up with director Woody Allen once again, this time on a film set in Rome. There are no plot details yet, but the computer program I wrote says the odds are very high that it won’t be as good as earlier Woody Allen movies. (EW)

THANDIE NEWTON will play opposite Tyler Perry in his next film Good Deeds, which Perry will write and direct as well. The film is about a successful businessman who must choose between his rich fiancée and a down-on-her-luck single mother. Even if it’s bad, Newton can take comfort that it can’t be worse than Norbit. (TheWrap)

JAY BARUCHEL will join Robert Pattinson, Samantha Morton, and Paul Giamatti in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. Pattinson plays a billionaire who loses everything he has in one day, including his new wife. Bad things happening to Pattinson, I can get on board with. Baruchel plays the original founder and conscious at Pattinson’s company. (Deadline)

MAGGIE GRACE will star alongside Liam Neeson in Taken 2, produced by Luc Besson. And yes, the will-he-or-won’t-he-tension of whether Neeson would take on Taken 2 has been resolved in the affirmative. Eight-time “Namey” award winner Olivier Megaton will direct. (Deadline) (Collider)

Cronenberg Snags Sarah Gadon For Another Collaboration In ‘Cosmopolis’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/cronenberg-snags-sarah-gadon-for-another-collaboration-in-cosmopolis/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/cronenberg-snags-sarah-gadon-for-another-collaboration-in-cosmopolis/#comments Mon, 28 Mar 2011 21:31:00 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=204052 Sarah Gadon is quickly becoming the Viggo Mortensen of actresses.

Has Cronenberg found his female Viggo Mortensen? 23 year-old Canadian actress Sarah Gadon is entrenching herself in the director’s inner circle, being cast in Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis after having just appeared in his soon-to-be released A Dangerous Method.

In Cosmopolis, Gadon will play Robert Pattinson‘s estranged wife after negotiations with Keira Knightley fizzled. Cosmopolis focuses on an eventful day in the life of Pattinson’s character as he tries to conquer the financial markets and is targeted by many.

Gadon’s participation was probably due to her losing the title role of Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, which, somewhat coincidentally, Viggo Mortensen bowed out of just this past Friday. I guess you’re either a Snow White actor or you’re a Cronenberg actor, but never both. 2011 has already been a busy year for Gadon, who has wrapped on Dreamhouse and Moth Diaries in addition to participating in the two Cronenberg projects. Hope she likes working with dudes named “Viggo.” (Deadline)

David Cronenberg‘s upcoming movie version of Don DeLillo’s novel Cosmopolis is continuing to add ringers to its cast. The latest addition is Samantha Morton, who’s been in a lot of stuff but will always be Agatha the precog from Minority Report to me. The star of the movie, Robert Pattinson, spilled the info in a recent interview:

“I know Juliette Binoche is in it now, and Samantha Morton. It’s going to be a crazy cast. Like, I have a feeling it’s going to be amazing.”

I have a feeling it’s going to be amazing too, Mr. Pattinson. Here’s a plot synopsis, in case you’re not rabidly following news about Don Delillo adaptations by David Cronenberg:

“[The movie] follow 24 hours in the life of newly married billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) as he cheats on his wife, is pursued by a stalker (Paul Giamatti), gets attacked by a protester and gradually loses his entire fortune over the course of a single day. “

Sounds pretty good, right? No word yet on who Morton is playing, but hopefully the movie will live up the promise indicated by the involvement of Robert Pattinson. And, uh, those other people. (via The Playlist)

David Cronenberg‘s upcoming adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel Cosmopolis already managed to get America’s Albino Robert Pattinson for the lead role. Now, clamoring to get on the Pattinson bandwagon, Juliette Binoche is also signed on for the movie. She’s joinin Paul Giamatti and (possibly) Mathieu Almaric in a movie about Pattinson cruising through Manhattan in his limo getting into all kinds of shenanigans:

“[A] young billionaire, who during the course of one day traveling across Manhattan in his limo, manages to cheat on his wife, deal with protesters and another antagonist or two, and encounter some financial trouble.”

No word on what part Binoche will actually be playing. Back when Colin Farrell was cast in the lead it was speculated she would be playing the main character’s wife, but that seems a little less likely given Pattinson’s age. (via /Film)

David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis seems to be swapping out the whole cast, one move at a time. Originally announced to be starring Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard as the young billionaire and his wife, respectively, it would seem that the producers have decided to make that couple even younger by recasting the couple with Robert Pattinson and Keira Knightly. While Farrell was no Daniel Day-Lewis, he had proven his chops as a man at the end of his rope in films like Minority Report and Phone Booth, while Pattinson has proven to have one gear as an actor: brooding teenager Knowing Cronenberg, “brooding teenager” is probably not a facet of this role, so our guard is up.

Further, the talk on Paul Giamatti playing the billionaire’s stalker has died down as well, which ominously suggests that they might be turning Cosmopolis into The Game for a younger set. Ugh. Here’s to hoping they at least pull a down-on-his-luck William H. Macy or Phillip Seymour Hoffman in there to add some depth. That’s not to say Knightley isn’t a decent actress, but she’s so hot that it’s hard to pay attention to her role. Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s never had that problem.

Cosmopolis follows a billionaire (Pattinson) ove 24 hours as he cheats on his wife, gets stalked, and loses his fortune. Sounds like a pretty good premise. Here’s to hoping that they can get the right team together. (Playlist)

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.
