This first image from the production of David Cronenberg’s upcoming film ‘Cosmopolis’ has emerged online thanks to the director’s daughter, Caitlin Cronenberg, who uploaded the photo via her Twitter account. As a massive Cronenberg fan I’ve been keeping a keen eye on this film. Besides ‘Cosmopolis,’ which is currently filming and looking for release next year, Cronenberg has a film ready for release late 2011, ‘A Dangerous Method,’ which chronicles the intense relationship between Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and his student Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), and how it gave birth to competing theories of psychoanalysis.

‘Cosmopolis’, which stars Robert Pattinson, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Mathieu Amalric, Kevin Durand, and Sarah Gadon, is based on Don DeLillo’s novel of the same name and follows Eric Packer (Pattinson), a multi-millionaire, across Manhattan as he goes through his fortune in a 24-hour attempt to get a haircut.
