Indie pop rock band Metric
has announced via their official website
that they have officially teamed up with composer Howard Shore to work on the score for the upcoming David Cronenberg (The Fly
) film Cosmopolis
, which is based on the Don DeLillo novel of the same name.
The movie will follow Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) on a fateful day as his limousine trip to get a haircut from his preferred barber turns into a strange odyssey across Manhattan. Through a series of chance encounters with his wife (Sarah Gadon), strange individuals, and his own costly financial miscalculations, Packer begins to see his world of wealth and privilege in an entirely new and unpleasant light.
Sounds like something right up Cronenberg’s alley, eh?
