Okay, can we start campaigning for Robert Pattinson to star in remakes of every single David Cronenberg movie ever made?
It seems like everyone involved in "Cosmopolis" is claiming it's a return to weirdo form for Cronenberg, who has recently played it relatively safe with mannered character dramas like "A Dangerous Method" and "Eastern Promises." This latest promotional photo shoot (conceived by R.Pattz himself) seems to push that point even further as it features Cronenberg's latest leading man recreating scenes from a handful of the director's cult favorites, including "Dead Ringers," "Videodrome" and "Scanners."
We must say, Pattinson has earned a whole new level of street cred by appearing in pics with a gaping wound on his chest and a crazy James Woods kind of look on his face. A shame there wasn't any attempt at recreating "The Fly," though — R.Pattz in gross-out mutant makeup (and perhaps even posing with his own version of the Brundlefly Museum of Natural History) would've been quite the sight to see.
