Director David Cronenberg has cast his adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel Cosmopolis with Marion Cotillard, reports Variety.
The story of Cosmopolis occurs almost entirely inside a limousine over 24 hours as a billionaire drives slowly through a city, cheats on his wife, is stalked, and loses his fortune. Colin Farrell will play the husband and Cotillard ( Nine, Public Enemies) plays the wife.
Currently Cronenberg ( Crash, A History of Violence) is shooting A Dangerous Method with Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender in Germany about psychoanalyst Carl Jung.
Cotillard will be seen next in sci-fi thriller Inception with Leonardo DiCaprio this summer. Farrell stars in Ondine, Neil Jordan's film about an Irish fisherman who catches a mermaid in his net, and London Boulevard with Kiera Knightley.
