Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard to star in Cronenberg's Cosmopolis

05.11.2010

We were quite surprised yesterday by the news of Colin Farrell nabbing the part of charming vampire neighbor, Jerry Dandridge in the FRIGHT NIGHT remake.

Now it seems Farrell has gotten himself another role with the absolutely beautiful Marion Cotillard. The two will star in David Cronenberg's COSMOPOLIS, an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Don DeLillo.

COSMOPOLIS is a thriller about a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. Farrell plays an asset manager that loses all his wealth in just one day. Cotillard is taking on the role of his wife.

The film will be shot after Cronenberg finishes A DANGEROUS METHOD, formerly known as THE TALKING CURE. The film chronicles the friendship of Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) until a woman (Keira Knightley) destroys everything.

The wait will be a bit, COSMOPOLIS should begin production in March 2011 since TALKING CURE starts up this month.

Oh Marion...
Extra Tidbit: I became a Farrell fan again after watching IN BRUGES. If you haven't seen it, it's a spectacular film.

Farrell

Farrell was good long before In Bruges, but In Bruges is the best he's ever been.

Fantastic novel

Read this book a few years ago - DeLillo is one of my favourite authors. It's one of his shorter works but still very good. I'd never considered Cronenberg to adapt a DeLillo novel, but I think he'd be perfect to match the bizarre elements and the intellectual aspects; come to think of it, I believe he was attached to "White Noise" for a while, but that never panned out for whatever reason. Some of his books would make really good pictures.

Big fan of Farrell's too - underrated actor who

Big fan of Farrell's too - underrated actor who unfortunately got hyped as the Next Big Thing around 2002/2003 and fizzled out when he got shitty roles.

Movie sounds great, love the director and the cast. Farrell is a good actor and was great in Phone Booth, S.W.A.T., In Bruges, Daredevil, and recently The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus (even though he was in the movie for only a couple of minutes). I can totally see Farrell in a role like this and doing a great job. Also, I agree with you about the extra tidbit 110%. It truly is an amazing film.
