The next stop in the R-Patz’s neverending, Holy Grail-like quest to prove he’s more than just a sexy, anguished vampire, is an adaptation of Don Delillo’s Cosmopolis. Similar to other recent ventures, it’s looking from the full length trailer like he’ll be having a lot of sex while at the same time being, like, totally overwhelmed by it all. This time around, he plays a Romney son on a really bad acid trip.
Directed by David Cronenberg 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.’
