Update for June 22 from Cosmopolisthefilm.com:
COSMOPOLIS’ set has been visited by some of the major stars of today’s film industry. Besides Twilight Saga’s idol, Robert Pattinson, who took Eric Packer’s role in the highly sought-for David Cronenberg’s new project, also Sarah Gadon and Kevin Durand have been at the set, based in Toronto.
Internationally acclaimed French actress Juliette Binoche has already embodied Didi Fincher, her character on this adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel. For this Oscar winner actress this was her first film David Cronenberg’s project.
Samantha Morton, two times Academy Award nominee, is already working with the “Crash” director, in Toronto. The British actress who plays Vija Kinski, Eric Packer’s Chief of Theory, already confessed she is “a huge fan” of David Cronenberg’s work.
Soon, French actor and director Mathieu Amalric will take part in COSMOPOLIS’ shooting and play Andre Petrescu.
Somali-canadian poet and rapper K’naan also got involved in COSMOPOLIS and will have a special appearance in the film. This multiple Juno Award winner is the last addition to one of the most exciting film of the year.
Very exciting to hear about K’naan’s involvement! I thought at first he might be making a musical contribution but the announcement says “appearance”. Could K’naan be our Brutha Fez? And please oh please let us get some photos of the Pastry Assassin’s scenes with Eric. 😉
Thank you to reader Jay for the tip!
