With shooting set to begin this summer in Toronto, casting on David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric is wrapping up. Samantha Morton joined the cast last week -- as we found out via a Robert Pattinson interview -- now she's been confirmed, and according to Entertainment One, who is handling the picture's distribution in Canada, one more actor has joined the cast: Canadian Sarah Gadon, who will be playing the role of the Pattinson character's estranged wife, Elise Shifrin.

With shooting set to begin this summer in Toronto, casting on David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric is wrapping up. Samantha Morton joined the cast last week -- as we found out via a Robert Pattinson interview -- now she's been confirmed, and according to Entertainment One, who is handling the picture's distribution in Canada, one more actor has joined the cast: Canadian Sarah Gadon, who will be playing the role of the Pattinson character's estranged wife, Elise Shifrin.

Known in Canada for the television series "Are You Afraid of the Dark?," Gadon currently stars on the CBC drama, "The Border." More importantly she has already worked with Cronenberg, landing a smaller role in the filmmaker's already-shot "A Dangerous Method" where she plays Emma Jung, Carl Jung's wife. That picture stars Michael Fassbender, Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightley and Vincent Cassel.

Based on the novella of the same name by award-winning writer Don DeLillo, in "Cosmopolis," Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a 28-year-old multi-billionaire finance guru who drives around Manhattan in a high-tech, pimped out limo in order to get a haircut, with many interruptions along the way. Set within a 24-hour period, most of the novel takes place in his limousine and we assume the film will do the same. During his day, Packer loses millions of dollars for his clients by telling them to bet against the yen, and then is stalked by two men seemingly seeking revenge. Obsessed with sex, Packer spends the day cheating on his wife and trying to outwit the men that are after him.

Gadon will be seen next in Jim Sheridan’s "Dream House" among other projects, and had a role in Jon Poll’s cult hit "Charlie Bartlett." No release date is set for "Cosmopolis," but 2012 will surely be the earliest it arrives. Either way, with "A Dangerous Method" in post-production and arriving either in the fall or at Cannes (or our guess is the Toronto Int. Film Festival), it's nice to see Cronenberg working at such a quick clip. After all, a world without David Cronenberg films is a lesser one.
