David Cronenberg to Direct "Cosmopolis"

David Cronenberg to Direct "Cosmopolis"Submit Comment
David Cronenberg (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) will bring Don DeLillo's novel "Cosmopolis" to the big screen, the film's producer said Friday.

Plot: Eric Packer, a billionaire asset manager at age twenty-eight, emerges from his penthouse triplex and settles into his lavishly customized white stretch limousine. On this day he is a man with two missions: to pursue a cataclysmic bet against the yen and to get a haircut across town.

His journey to the barbershop is a contemporary odyssey, funny and fast-moving. Stalled in traffic by a presidential motorcade, a music idol's funeral and a violent political demonstration, Eric receives a string of visitors -- his experts on security, technology, currency, finance and theory. Sometimes he leaves the car for sexual encounters and sometimes he doesn't have to.

The film is set to start shooting in 2010 in New York and Toronto, but the cast has yet to be announced. "Cosmopolis" is DeLillo's 13th novel published in 2003 by Scribner.

Cronenberg has made some excellent films, but this sounds f*cking stupid. The only thing that can save this is the casting of the actor who played Lucifer in the cult hit movie The Prophecy, he seems to be his go to guy anyway.

this is just wierd enough for Cronenberg, only he can tackle the wierd the strange and the drug induced.. except for naked lunch. loved the book, but honestly he did his best for the film.. No one could ever make a true film based on that master piece, and im sorry but naked lunch is a brilliant masterpiece....
