Robert Pattinson has made his way to Toronto, Ontario to film a new David Cronenberg-directed film titled Cosmopolis. In the film, Pattinson plays a young billionaire who goes for a taxi ride — that changes his life! Or … something like that. Click below to check out a few photos of R. Pattz on set with his co-star Sarah Gadon in Toronto this week.
Shooting has begun in Toronto on Robert Pattinson’s (“Water for Elephants,” “The Twilight Saga”) new thriller directed by the king of creepy, David Cronenberg (“The Fly, “A History of Violence’). In “Cosmopolis,” Pattinson plays young billionaire, Eric Packer. The film follows Packer as his routine cab ride to get a haircut turns into 24 hours of everything but routine. In this first look photo from the shoot above, we see Pattinson’s character has at least one good reason for a detour. Co-star Sarah Gadon (“A Dangerous Method”) makes for a pretty distraction. Pattinson’s costars also include Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche (“Chocolat”), Academy Award-nominee Paul Giamatti (“Sideways”), and Academy Award-nominee Samantha Morton (“In America”).
I gotta say … I’m intrigued by this film description. I’m also curious to see how the beautiful city of Toronto treats the megasuperstar while he is in town. I’m sure there are quite a few Canadian Twihards in the area that will be scrambling to get a glimpse of Rob in their fair city. I wonder what other sort of photos we’ll be seeing from the set of Cosmopolis.
