Farrell, Cotillard to star in Cronenberg pic

Duo attached to director's adaptation of DeLillo novel

Colin Farrell and Marion Cotillard are attached to topline David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis,” an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel.

Gregoire Melin’s Paris-based Kinology has picked up international sales rights and is presenting the project to buyers for the first time at the Cannes market.

The $20.5 million film is penned by Cronenberg and produced by Portuguese producer Paulo Branco’s Alfama Films and Cronenberg’s Toronto-based Antenna, in association with Kinology.

The thriller follows a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. Farrell will play the asset manager who loses all his wealth over the course of one day. Cotillard will play his wife.

Lensing will take place from March to May in Toronto and New York.

“Cosmopolis” will be Cronenberg’s follow-up to “A Dangerous Method,” which starts shooting this month in Germany with Keira Knightley and Viggo Mortensen.

DeLillo’s acclaimed works include “White Noise” and “Underworld.”

Branco last produced “Ashes and Blood,” directed by Gallic thesp Fanny Ardant.

At Cannes, Kinology is also launching sales on Finnish fantasy “Rare Exports,”directed by first-timer Jalmari Helander. Melin’s sales slate includes Kirsten Dunst-starrer “Upside Down,” a $50-million sci-fi romance that is currently shooting in Montreal.
