Plot:
Quote:
The story follows young billionaire Eric Packer (Pattinson) as he travels across Manhattan via limo to get a haircut. But along the way he has to deal with the extensive fallout of decisions hes made and risks hes taken in his personal and professional life.


I know I'm not the only Cronenberg super fan here, so who else is psyched we're getting TWO Cronenberg pictures within the span of a year? Even though I have a feeling A Dangerous Method will be a much more fulfilling film experience, I find this one to be even more interesting. I'm excited to see what Pattinson does in this role, as Cronenberg is usually incredible with casting and pulling great performances out of those actors, so there must be something David sees in the kid. And even though I have read the source material, I still can't picture what this movie is going to look or feel like. It's such an odd novel, and such an odd fit for Cronenberg, which excites me all the more.

Pattinson is a really dull actor, but the fact we have a Cronenberg film coming out is awesome all together. Excited.

The only film I've seen him in is Remember Me which was hilariously terrible, but I didn't find him to be the worst part of it. He played an incredibly flaccid character, though. No disrespect to them, but I doubt the Twilight series gives him much room to develop as a performer either. I think this film might change some of our minds about him.

I don't think Pattinson is a terrible actor, he just hasn't had the right role to show his talent.
Maybe this is it, or maybe I'm wrong.

the book is fantastic, DeLillo is easily one of my favourite living writers. I have confidence that Cronenberg can pull this off, even with a dud as his lead.

I hadn't heard anything about this until I saw the teaser an hour ago and I am pretty intrigued.
