Mathieu Amalric / Juliette Binoche

We know that Robert Pattinson is already looking to step up his acting game by taking the lead role in David Cronenberg's next film Cosmopolis, an adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel of the same name. Now a couple of great French thespians will be taking part in the film as well. First up, ScreenDaily has word that Juliette Binoche (Caché, Certified Copy) is taking an unknown role in this. In addition, C7nema (via The Playlist) reports Mathieu Amalric (Quantum of Solace) has taken another role, which is also unidentified. These two talents are undoubtedly some of the best that France has to offer, and are certainly welcome additions.

The keen eyes at The Playlist noticed both of these casting additions for a story that follows a multi-millionaire asset manager (Pattinson) who crosses the whole of Manhattan in a stretch limo just for a haircut. However, the guy can't get a break as he's repeatedly delayed by a presidential motorcade, anti-globalization demonstrations, and a celebrity funeral. Stuck in his limo, the financial wunderkind must also deal with the potentially deadly repercussions of a risky bet against the yen on a bad day for the market. This story sounds pretty intense, and with this cast involved, I'm definitely even more interested. How about you?
