Larry411, film journalist, shared some Cosmopolis production info on twitter:
“COSMOPOLIS” Feature Film
TORONTO ANTENNA LTD.
STATUS: April 4
LOCATION: Toronto/New York
PRODUCER: Paulo Branco – Martin Katz – Renee Tab WRITER/DIRECTOR: David Cronenberg PM: Joseph Boccia – Robin Reelis
CAST: Robert Pattinson – Paul Giamatti
It is an April day in the year 2000 and an era is about to end. The booming times of market optimism — when the culture boiled with money and corporations seemed more vital and influential than governments — are poised to crash. Eric Packer (Pattinson), a billionaire asset manager at age twenty-eight, emerges from his penthouse triplex and settles into his lavishly customized white stretch limousine. Today he is a man with two missions: to pursue a cataclysmic bet against the yen and to get a haircut across town. Stalled in traffic by a presidential motorcade, a music idol’s funeral, and a violent political demonstration, Eric receives a string of visitors — experts on security, technology, currency, finance, and a few sexual partners — as the limo sputters toward an increasingly uncertain future. Based on the novel by Don DeLillo. (Giamatti plays the dual role of Benno Levin/Richard Steers. / Production office opens Mid-March.)
I got clarification from Larry regarding the April 4th date. That means production is slated to start on that date but doesn’t necessarily mean filming will start on that date. Pattinson will be wrapping up filming on Breaking Dawn at that time. As of right now, Cosmopolis filming start date is May 23rd.
