Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard to Star in David Cronenberg’s COSMOPOLIS

     May 11, 2010

Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard have come on board David Cronenberg’s next film, Cosmopolis, based on Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel of the same name.  Here’s how Variety describes the film: “The thriller follows a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. Farrell will play the asset manager who loses all his wealth over the course of one day. Cotillard will play his wife.”  I think it goes from being a thriller to a comedy if you just add the sad trombone sound cue when Farrell loses all the guy’s money (although most films become comedies when you bring in sad trombone).  Cosmopolis will follow-up Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, which starts shooting this month in Germany and stars Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen.

It’s been a busy week for Farrell.  Yesterday, we reported that he had been cast in Craig Gillespie’s remake of Fright Night and he’s also been cast in Seth Gordon’s dark comedy Horrible Bosses.
