Anyways, it looks like they now have the cast in order and the film is gearing up for its May shoot, in Toronto. For those unfamiliar with it, it’s based on the novel by Don DeLillo and follows “24 hours in the life of newly married billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) as he cheats on his wife, is pursued by a stalker (Paul Giamatti), gets attacked by a protester and gradually loses his entire fortune over the course of a single day.”

It sounds interesting and I’m down to see anything Cronenberg does. What do you think? Looking forward to Cosmopolis?
