Reuters Reports Possible May 2011 Shoot in Toronto for Rob’s Role in “Cosmopolis”

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – “Twilight” hearthrob Robert Pattinson has signed to star in “Cosmopolis,” David Cronenberg’s adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel.

The project centers on a 28-year-old financial wizard and billionaire, to be played by Pattinson, as he traverses Manhattan in his stretch limo.

His goal is to get a haircut at Anthony’s, his father’s barber, but on this day his driver has to navigate a presidential visit, an attack by anarchists and a rapper’s funeral. Stuck in traffic, he anxiously monitors the value of the yen on the limo’s computer, his fortune in the balance.

Farrell was attached to play the lead but segued to a remake of “Total Recall,” which also shoots in the spring.
