Oscar-nominated Samantha Morton and Sarah Gadon have joined David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. The thriller is set to begin filming this summer in Toronto. Gadon plays the estranged wife of the film’s lead Eric Packer, played by Robert Pattinson. The actress has appeared in Cronenberg’s last picture, A Dangerous Method, and Jim Sheridan’s Dream House. Morton has starred in Woody Allen’s Sweet and Lowdown and Jim Sheridan’s In America.
Cosmopolis is set to film at Cinespace’s Kipling studio facility. The movie is being produced by Paulo Branco through Paris-based Alfama Films Production and Martin Katz's Prospero Pictures. This film sounds pretty cool.
