Colin Farrell passes the Cosmopolis torch to Robert Pattinson

While discussing his next film, Colin Farrell was asked about Cosmopolis and Robert Pattinson’s recent involvement:

That was very gracious of him 🙂

Even though Farrell is no longer involved, some interesting information was revealed during the span of his attachment to Cosmopolis. This image was a promotional mock-up shown at the Cannes Film Festival 2010.

While the film could certainly take on different tones, this mock-up is an inspiring start.

At the time of Farrell’s involvement, the film was described as such from Variety:

Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard are attached to topline David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis,” an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel.

Gregoire Melin’s Paris-based Kinology has picked up international sales rights and is presenting the project to buyers for the first time at the Cannes market.

The $20.5 million film is penned by Cronenberg and produced by Portuguese producer Paulo Branco’s Alfama Films and Cronenberg’s Toronto-based Antenna, in association with Kinology.

The thriller follows a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. Farrell will play the asset manager who loses all his wealth over the course of one day. Cotillard will play his wife.

  • Love Colin! #bad.boys.are.hawt

    So the budget is $20.5 M??? In an article I read yesterday … it said between $10-$12 M … so this is great news! Well … I think … ok … I’m kinda scared right now because that puts more pressure on Rob. *snaps out of it* Ok … YES this is great news! 🙂
