Cosmopolis (2012) Poster



David Cronenberg wrote the script in six days.
In one scene you see an electric sign shows, "A SPECTER IS HAUNTING THE WORLD. CAPITALISM." This is a take-off on "A specter is haunting Europe -- the specter of communism." which is the opening line of "The Communist Manifesto."
Colin Farrell was originally cast but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with his movie Total Recall (2012). He was replaced by Robert Pattinson.
Marion Cotillard was originally cast as Elise Shifrin but dropped out due to pregnancy. After she dropped out, Noomi Rapace and Keira Knightley were considered to play the role before Sarah Gadon accepted the part.
David Cronenberg shot the scenes in chronological order. In the making-of documentary accompanying the film on DVD, the actors all appear in the same order as they appear in the movie.
With the exception of Robert Pattinson (British), Juliette Binoche (French) and Paul Giamatti (American), almost all the actors in this film are Canadian.
The license plate number on Eric's limousine is 9808 NAH.
