More Cosmopolis Film News

You’ll have to indulge me my fascination with the minutia of Cronenberg’s upcoming adaptation of DeLillo’s Cosmopolis.

Canadian indie rockers Metric will add another notable film to their soundtrack resumé — which boasts recent contributions to Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and a theme song for Twilight: Eclipse — when they team up with Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore for the score to Cosmopolis, a forthcoming adaptation of Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel of the same name. Directed by fellow Toronto-based Canuck David Cronenberg and starring Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson, Emily Haines and co. said the film’s “themes are right in tune with the overall mood of the world at the moment,” in an announcement on their website.
