Description: Cosmopolis is a day in the life of Eric Packer, a 28-year-old New York stock market multi-millionaire, as he crosses Manhattan in his customized limousine to go for a haircut. His cross-town journey becomes an almost vertical voyage, with bizarre occurrences and an authentic parade of crazy characters along the way, in a landscape that depicts the modern soul of the West at the end of the millennium.
Plot outline: The production of Cosmopolis is a union of two of the world’s greatest modern storytellers: the award-winning author Don DeLillo, and the acclaimed film director David Cronenberg; a project that is truly an international production. Indisputably one of the major forces of American Literature, DeLillo’s work is both frenetic and extremely visual, with the action all taking place in New York within a 24-hour period of time.
Cronenberg, one of the world’s most respected filmmakers, adapted the novel for the big screen and will direct the film as well. The producer is none other than Paulo Branco, the experienced Portuguese producer (Alfama Films) in a co-production with David Cronenberg’s company Toronto Antenna, Ltd. Shooting is expected to begin in 2010 in Toronto and New York.
Born in the United States in 1936, Don DeLillo is one of the most influential contemporary authors, whose works offer a carefully detailed portrait of life in America in the last century. His innate talent is reflected in the way that his writings first surfaced, and in his educational background: he graduated in Communication Arts, and then worked as a copywriter; he never thought that literature could become his life. In 1971, he wrote his first novel, Americana; after which time he lived in Greece for several years. Then, in 1985, he published White Noise, a novel that definitively thrust him into the limelight, as one of the most prominent figures of post-modern literature.

This excites me so much. The movie isn’t even in production yet and there’s a website and facebook. I can’t wait to see what they’re bringing to the table. So far, their limo is polished and ready for the “streets”.
We have a link to the official site & facebook on our navigation pane (right hand side) but we’ll also keep a watch and update you with all the additions.
YAY!!! *excited chauffeur face*
Final note: Rob’s picture is from the Dukes of Hazzard premiere in London, 2005. I like knowing how the producers are seeing Eric Packer.
