According to reports from TorontoFilm.Net, Canadian filmmaker David "Scanners" Cronenberg will adapt/direct author Don DeLillo's 2003 novel "Cosmopolis", for producer Paulo Branco's Paris-based Alfama Films and Cronenberg's Toronto-based Antenna Ltd.

Premise of the book focuses on 28-year-old billionaire 'Eric Packer', a 'financial wizard', who attempts to cross Manhattan in a luxuriously equipped stretch limo, encountering a presidential visit, public protest and celebrity funeral, forcing him to conduct his business and personal affairs from the vehicle.

Cronenberg will shoot the feature in New York and Toronto in 2010...
