Farrell has signed on along with Oscar winner Marion Cotillard to star in Canadian legend David Cronenberg's next project Cosmopolis. As reported here previously, Cronenberg is now in Germany working on The Talking Cure. According to our friends at PopGoesTheNews, Farrell will play a wealthy Asset Manager in Cosmopolis who loses his fortune while trying to get across New York City in a Limousine. The adapted screenplay is based on a novel by author Don DeLillo and begins filming March/April 2011 around Toronto. So very exciting.
What an honour it will be to have Cotillard, one of my favourite actresses, also in our city. Her star is also shining brightly right now with a role in eagerly-anticipated blockbuster Inception alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, in theatres July 16, 2010. (Photo credit: Mr. Will-W.)
