Speaking to the Huffington Post about A Dangerous Method, David Cronenberg was asked about Cosmopolis and Robert Pattinson. Do you get the impression the media is scandalized by his choice? LOL They can’t stop asking him about it. We’re just pleased as punch that DC
Why did you want Pattinson for the part in “Cosmopolis”?
Cronenberg: Well I’d watched a movie that I think not too many people have seen called “Little Ashes,” where he plays Salvador Dali, and he plays him as a young man and plays him with a Spanish accent. So I thought, well that’s really interesting, I mean this was before he was a “Twilight” star, because, it takes a particular handsome young man to decide to play that role. And then I did watch some of the “Twilight” stuff and I watched “Remember Me” and I felt that he had a lot going on. He’s supposed to be a super smart billionaire at a young age, 28 he says in the movie. It’s intuition. I didn’t know him as a person, but I’d figured from the movies that I’d seen, like “Little Ashes,” that I could maybe interest him in doing something that’s not “Twilight” obviously.
Additionally, one of the producers, Grégoire Melin’s from Kinology, emailed @Gossipgyal about the possibility of a trailer in January.
“We’re now editing a trailer from the footage we showed in Estoril, which should be released in January”
VERY exciting 🙂 We definitely need a proper trailer. Can’t wait to see the buzz after that.
