David Cronenberg to Adapt Don DeLillo Novel

cosmo.jpgCritically-acclaimed director David Cronenberg will shoot a filmed version of Don DeLillo‘s ‘Cosmopolis”–a 2003 novel studying one eventful day in the life of a young New York City millionaire.

According to Variety, Cronenberg will write the screenplay and direct the film, which is scheduled for shooting in 2010, traveling between Toronto and New York.

Here’s an excerpt from John Updike‘s review of the book: “In a land of chunky, garish, anxiousto-please books, Don DeLillo’s thirteenth novel, ‘Cosmopolis,’ is physically cool, as sleek and silver-touched and palely pure as a white stretch limo, which is in fact the action’s main venue.” (Via Publishers Weekly)
