More about Cosmopolis...
The production of Cosmopolis is a union of two of the world’s greatest modern storytellers: the award-winning author Don DeLillo, and the acclaimed film director David Cronenberg; a project that is truly an international production. Indisputably one of the major forces of American Literature, DeLillo’s work is both frenetic and extremely visual, with the action all taking place in New York within a 24-hour period of time. David Cronenberg, one of the world’s most respected filmmakers, adapted the novel for the big screen and directed the film as well. Shooting began in 2010 in Toronto and New York. Born in the United States in 1936, Don DeLillo is one of the most influential contemporary authors, whose works offer a carefully detailed portrait of life in America in the last century. His innate talent is reflected in the way that his writings first surfaced, and in his educational background: he graduated in Communication Arts, and then worked as a copywriter; he never thought that literature could become his life. In 1971, he wrote his first novel, Americana; after which time he lived in Greece for several years. Then, in 1985, he published White Noise, a novel that definitively thrust him into the limelight, as one of the most prominent figures of post-modern literature.
