In the film, Robert essays the role of Packer who bets on Japan’s currency Yen and puts his entire money at stake. Packer appear to be in an utter mess after he risks his fortune. The movie is based on the study of capitalism on a futuristic set up. David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis is a modern day interpretation of the famed James Joyce’s classic Ulysses and the story is based in New York City. All the incidents in the novel, takes place in a single day. The story unfold as Packer is on his way to Manhattan in a limousine.

Rumours are also doing the rounds that Inception star Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatt have signed on for the project.

The shoot is expected to start sometime in mid May in Toronto.

We wish Robert all the success in his upcoming venture.
