Cosmopolis Coming to Silver Screen

We may be emerging from the recession—but is it too soon for a movie about prelapsarian opulence? Cosmopolis—Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel about a young millionaire’s journey through a single day in New York—will be made into a movie by acclaimed director David Cronenberg. In a review of the book, John Updike wrote that Cosmopolis is "physically cool, as sleek and silver-touched and palely pure as a white stretch limo, which is in fact the action’s main venue." Shooting for the movie is scheduled for 2010.
