Cosmopolis" begins shooting in Toronto May 24th


Cosmopolis' shooting is set to begin in Toronto on May 24. There've been quite a few casting switches but it looks like all is settled. Robert Pattinson gets top billing, but the cast includes Jay Baruchel, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon, Juliette Binoche and Kevin Durand.


Pattinson plays the character Eric Packer, a young, multi-billionaire asset manager who sets out one day in Manhattan (there goes Toronto pretending to be NYC again) in his fabulously appointed stretch limo to get a haircut. The story/parable takes place over one day, during which Packer loses everything. The ending is apocalyptic.

Pattinson says Cosmopolis is one of his favourite novels and that the role is very hard, but he is "trying to turn it."

One other note: the musical score will be by Canadian composer Howard Shore, a frequent collaborator with Cronenberg .

So soon ? I thought that he'll have some down time after shooting Breaking Dawn. But the story sounds really interesting.

The book is really strange, and oddly uncomfortable at times! I am already blushing just thinking about rob doing some of the things in this book. But as usual he will do great! This guy Eric...well, let's just say he has problems. Read the book and you will know what I mean...there was one part where I actually gasped and said "What???...." Good luck Rob!
