Cosmopolis “rumored for release at the end of 2011”

Hmmm, I dunno. From Buzz.net

The pair are teaming up as husband and wife in Cosmopolis, a film based on the novel by Don DeLillo. Robert Pattinson is slated to play Eric Packer, a 28 year old multi-millionaire, with Keira Knightley on board the project to play Mrs. Packer. The basis of the film, and novel, is the life of Mr. Packer over a 24 hour period in Manhattan as he gets caught up in love, lust, family, money, and life.

The film is currently in pre-production and is rumored for release at the end of 2011.

We can hope, but with a filming start date at the end of May… and imdb still showing a more realistic “2012” release, we’ll file this under “speculation”.

  • Oooooh!! I was all set to do my happy dance….you think I should hold off?? 😉 It would be pretty amazing if they managed to pop this out by the end of the year. *eeek* Will keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for this!! <3

  • DebbieCDC (aka Seattle Chik)

    Wow, they must be planned a fast shooting/editing schedule — are they trying to get it out in time for next year’s Oscars????

  • I’m gonna call shenanigans. Plus, I’d rather they hold off till 2012. We need to spread the babies out!

    • I concur 😉 Can you imagine Bel Ami, Breaking Dawn and Cosmopolis all out within a few months of each other? Although it would be fun to see Scummit try to spin that. *giggle*

    I talked to a friend today who is heavily involved in the film festival scene in many cities and countries, and he predicts Cosmopolis won’t premiere until Cannes 2012 because he says ALL of Cronenberg’s films always premiere in competition at Cannes. I swear if Cosmopolis premieres at Cannes, and my pal can get us tix to attend (which he has the connections to do), I’m getting my red carpet on and heading for the south of France. Bonjour bebes!

    • That sounds more like it!! Cannes loves Cronenberg – didn’t they create an award just for him one year?

      I wonder what shade of green I’ll turn if get to go?? 😉 *fingers crossed*

      P.S. Have you talked to your friend about Bel Ami? I’m dying… #DuRob

      • Cronenberg won the Cannes special jury prize for Crash and was awarded the Cannes lifetime achievement award in 2009. He is highly respected in France (but then again, we love Jerry Lewis and gave even Sharon Stone the Legion d’honneur…. *cringe*).

        Cronenberg is a real film maverick and his work is greatly appreciated for its ambition in Europe. All of his works open with great fanfare from critics, Cronopolis should be no exception.

    Yeah I’m a little skeptical of that timetable too. Hey, did Keira Knightley get confirmed and I missed it??

    • not yet…

      • Suziekew

        Thanks Tink…I am falling behind on my Rob info here due to work, this is NOT GOOD. lol

    That’s really rushing it, don’t ya think? I mean let’s say 3 months for filming (doesn’t allow much time for any reshoots), then 3 months for post-production and editing, now we’re at the beginning of December! Not much time for promotion! I don’t see how they could do it, but I can understand they might not want to wait til 2012. Such a conundrum!!! LOL

    This part of this comment is just for those of us who were drawn to this project cuz of RPattinson – what a year 2011 will be for us RPatz fans: WFE, Bel Ami, BD-1 and maybe Cosmospolis. Be still my racing heart!!!!!

    • pausner

      Cronenberg is an incredibly efficient filmmaker. His shoots are maybe 2 months and editing is 6 weeks.

  • Clint Eastwood edited Million Dollar Baby in one weekend.

    How reliable a source is buzz.net? I have mixed emotions about this, one part of me is like a child who dislikes delayed gratification, but the other half can see the merit of premiering this unique film project at Cannes. And, OMG, DebbieCDC, I am so jealous, but happy for you if you do go, that would (will) be just insanely wonderful to see Cosmopolis at Cannes!!!!
