Farrell, Cotillard Join Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis”

Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard are set to star in David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel “Cosmopolis” reports The Playlist.

The story is set across a 24-hour period and takes place almost entirely within a limousine which is making its way slowly through a city due to several events (including a presidential visit) keeping traffic at a standstill.

Farrell would play a newlywed billionaire who cheats on his wife (Cotillard), finds himself being stalked, attacked by a protester, and slowly losing his massive fortune.

Cronenberg’s kicks off filming on the psychoanalyst love-triangle drama “A Dangerous Method” this month in Germany. “Cosmopolis” will shoot from March to May next year, with the “Eastern Promises” sequel now likely to film after rather than before it.
