Update #2: A press release from Canadian distributors Entertainment One now confirms the casting of Juliette Binoche and Mathieu Amalric in "Cosmopolis."

Update: Production company Clap Filmes confirms the information below on their website.

With a May production start looming, it appears that there is some movement on David Cronenberg's gestating "Cosmopolis," which currently has Robert Pattinson and Paul Giamatti set to star.

ScreenDaily reports that beloved French actress Juliette Binoche (last year's Cannes Best Actress winner for "Certified Copy") has joined the cast but there's little by way of additional information or who she'll play. Additionally, according to C7nema, who spoke with a source at production company Alfama Films, French thespian Mathieu Amalric has also signed on to the film in an unspecified role (and as far as we know, their report landed before ScreenDaily's did and also included the casting of Binoche). Either way, both would be a welcome addition to the cast.

The film is based on Don DeLillo‘s book of the same name, and follows 24 hours in the life of newly married billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) as he cheats on his wife, is pursued by a stalker (Giamatti), gets attacked by a protester and gradually loses his entire fortune over the course of a single day. None of this casting is 100% confirmed just yet, and inquiries sent to the actors' reps weren't answered as of press time.

Other little nuggets to note: longtime collaborators, composer Howard Shore and director of photography Peter Suschitzy, are said to be returning to work with Cronenberg on "Cosmopolis" according to C7nema. Production is slated to begin in Toronto on May 24th and last for nine weeks, and more names will apparently be surfacing soon.
