COSMOPOLIS is an upcoming drama film directed by David Cronenberg (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, A Dangerous Method) and based on the novel of the same name by Don DeLillo, who co-wrote the screenplay with Cronenberg. The film starring Robert Pattinson, Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton, Jay Baruchel, Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Mathieu Amalric and Emily Hampshire.
The story centers on a day in the life of Eric Packer (Pattinson), a 28-year-old New York stock market multi-millionaire, as he crosses Manhattan in his customized limousine to go for a haircut. His cross-town journey becomes an almost vertical voyage, with bizarre occurrences and an authentic parade of crazy characters along the way, in a landscape that depicts the modern soul of the West at the end of the millennium.
