David Cronenberg to Direct Cosmopolis


David Cronenberg will bring Don DeLillo’s novel “Cosmopolis” to the big screen, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Paulo Branco’s Paris-based production house Alfama Films will co-produce with Cronenberg’s Toronto Antenna Ltd.

“Cosmopolis,” which has yet to be cast, will tell DeLillo’s story of a 28 year-old billionaire who crosses Manhattan for a haircut.

The film is set to start shooting in 2010 in New York and Toronto.
