Colin Farrell, Marion Cotillard Join David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis"

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim

Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard are set to star in David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel "Cosmopolis"

According to Variety:  The $20.5 million film is penned by Cronenberg and produced by Portuguese producer Paulo Branco's Alfama Films and Cronenberg's Toronto-based Antenna, in association with Kinology.

The story is set across a 24-hour period and takes place almost entirely within a limousine which is making its way slowly through a city due to several events (including a presidential visit) keeping traffic at a standstill.

Farrell would play a newlywed billionaire who cheats on his wife (Cotillard), finds himself being stalked, attacked by a protester, and slowly losing his massive fortune.

Cronenberg's kicks off filming on the psychoanalyst love-triangle drama "A Dangerous Method" this month in Germany.

Cronenberg is one of the most interesting filmmakers in the industry, and he is perfect to adapt one of DeLilo’s novels. It’s also good to see Colin Farrell getting some more work, because when he is on his game (“Tigerland,” “In Bruges”) great things can happen.

"Cosmopolis" will shoot from March to May next year.
