MetroWNY had a couple of thoughtful and positive posts today about Cosmopolis. The first excerpt touched on the benefit of having Paul Giamatti in the limo:
Giamatti is a very accomplished actor who can help Robert Pattinson is more ways than most people might think.
With the star power of Robert Pattinson and the accomplished acting skills and name recognition that Paul Giamatti brings to the table, Cosmopolis will be a no doubt smash hit.
The next excerpt discusses Pattinson’s potential in the role of Eric Packer and what this movie could mean for his career.
What we don’t know is if he can play the role of action star.
Granted the role in Cosmopolis is not exactly the role of John McClane in the Die Hard series but nonetheless it will still be considered an action/suspense movie which is unlike anything he has done before. Please don’t tell me that the Twilight movies are action films because they are not. They are fantasy films and are nothing like a true action/suspense movie. Cosmopolis gives Robert Pattinson a chance to show that not only can he play any role but he can do it better than anyone else.
If Pattinson can turn Cosmopolis into a hit then he will be right up there with Johnny Depp as far as the greatest actors currently in the movies. While not everything is within Robert’s control, as the writing will be the most important factor as to whether or not the movie is a success, he can be the difference between Cosmopolis being a good movie and it being a blockbuster hit.
Giamatti still being attached to Cosmopolis is nothing but positive and Pattinson will surely strengthen his resume and acting skills by working with Cronenberg and Giamatti. Can’t wait to get more information on the cast and crew 🙂 Click the sources to read the articles in their entirety.
