In a fascinating casting choice, Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson will star in an upcoming adaptation–leaping from Stephenie Meyer to Don DeLillo in a single bound.
Critically-acclaimed director David Cronenberg will be adapting DeLillo’s Cosmopolis, and the cast is still being sorted out. The 2003 novel studying one eventful day in the life of a young New York City millionaire.
Here’s more from Deadline New York: “Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are also reportedly doing the film, but those same reports had Colin Farrell poised to take the lead role … Pattinson is following a path based on strong filmmakers and tasteful source material. He took the role because he is a big fan of Cronenberg’s work and an admirer of DeLillo’s books.”
