Don DeLillo + David Cronenberg + Twilight Vampire Dude = Awesome?

Posted by Jason Diamond

From Galley Cat:

In a fascinating casting choice, Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson will star in an upcoming adaptation–leaping from Stephenie Meyer to Don DeLillo in a single bound.

Critically-acclaimed director David Cronenberg will be adapting DeLillo’s Cosmopolis, and the cast is still being sorted out. The 2003 novel studying one eventful day in the life of a young New York City millionaire.

I’m not usually the biggest fan of books being turned into films.  I sorta winced at the news that James Franco has been buying up film rights left and right (no offense dude), but Cronenberg and DeLillo, together?  That’s pretty amazing.
