Well, here’s a movie we haven’t heard about in a while. New photos from David Cronenberg‘s adaptation of Don DeLillo‘s “Cosmopolis” have hit the web courtesy of the film’s site. The film, out sometime in 2012, tells the story of a 28-year-old financial wizard and billionaire ( Pattinson), as he traverses Manhattan in his stretch limo. His goal is to get a haircut at Anthony’s, his father’s barber, but on this day his driver has to navigate a presidential visit, an attack by anarchists and a rapper’s funeral. Stuck in traffic, he anxiously monitors the value of the yen on the limo’s computer, his fortune in the balance.
The film also stars Jay Baruchel, Kevin Durand, Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche and Samantha Morton.
Even though Pattinson stars in those horrible “Twilight” films, he was really good in “Water for Elephants”.
