With a production start date just a few months away, it looks like Cosmopolis producers are getting a jump start on promotion. The official film site has now been updated with the latest information, and it is showing off a new look. See for yourself and then like their page on Facebook.
The film has been gaining buzz with the addition of actors Juliette Binoche and Mathieu Amalric. They will join Rob in the project, that was the topic of a well written article by Death and Taxes magazine:
With that in mind, is it possible for Robert Pattinson to pull of a character that can so easily descend into caricature?
My guess is that he could possibly pull off Packer’s icy, intellectual arrogance, as well as the threads of emotion running underneath the character’s veneer. Perhaps Pattinson was who Cronenberg needed to greenlight “Cosmopolis,” although I have a hard time believing Cronenberg would crumble to studio pressure on casting.
Whatever the case, the field of actors at the appropriate age is limited. Who wants to see James Franco in another project, and Ryan Gosling is too obvious a choice for this role. The fact that Juliette Binoche and Mathieu Amalric have been cast will surely help raise Pattinson’s game.
If anyone can make Pattinson into Packer, it will be Cronenberg.
