Confirmed: Juliette Binoche Will Join Rob In Cosmopolis!

Cosmopolis producer Paulo Branco confirmed to Screen Daily that Juliette Binoche is now part of the cast:

He [Branco] also said that there was now a confirmed shooting date for David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis (sold by Kinology but produced by Branco) of May 24. Paul Giamatti and Juliette Binoche have also joined the cast.

Binoche seems like a good match for this unique film and Rob. Clap Filmes confirms she will be playing the role of Didi Fancher. They also have a link to what looks like the official site for the film, currently under construction.

According to PattinsonStewC7nema is reporting that Mathieu Amalric has joined the cast as well. Composer Howard Shore who's worked with Cronenberg in the past, is reportedly also attached - and slashfilm guesses he's not the only one coming back:

The site further announces, via production company Alfama Films, that Howard Shore will score the film and Peter Suschitzky will shoot it. Both of those men have worked with David Cronenberg constantly (Peter Suschitzky has shot all the director’s features since Dead Ringers; Howard Shore has scored all his features since The Brood, with the exception of The Dead Zone) and it would be more remarkable if they were not on board. But it’s great to know they’re back — I’d guess that Carol Spier will work as production designer and Denise Cronenberg will be the costumer, too.

As of now filming is set to begin May 24 in Toronto, and at some point move to New York. C7nema adds that filming will last for nine weeks.

News is moving fast on Rob's next project, and we'll be here to bring you the very latest! - in the meantime you may want to freshen up on Cronenberg's work in a great Cosmopolis preview by Indiemoviesonline.



  1. Tom Sturridge said one of his favorite love films is The Lovers on a Bridge starring Juliette Binoche.

    I have a feeling she will be the art dealer that has an affair with Robert's character. That or the woman who works with him.

  2. The book was a total bore, hope they can make something of it! I think that's the reason they had so many actors drop from it. Juliet is a bit long in the tooth to play his wife and not at all the woman described in the book.
