Cosmopolis, SWATH and On The Road in Wired Magazine's Lise of "2012’s Most Tantalizing Movies"

Let’s Take a Ride: Cosmopolis

Story: Taking place over 24 hours in Manhattan, Cosmopolis examines the heart and soul of the West through the story of a 28-year-old stock market millionaire (played by Robert Pattinson) who takes a drive across town in his limo to get a haircut.

Why it could be cool: The movie is being directed by the always-surprising-us David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises) and based on a novel by Don DeLillo. So if “movie about a car ride” doesn’t sound exciting just yet, consider the sources. If nothing else, it should be visually stunning and rife with compelling dialog. The film is also being scored by Howard Shore, the Oscar-winning composer behind the Lord of the Rings films.

Cautionary note: Very little is known about this adaptation yet, so even though its creators are brilliant it’s hard to anticipate exactly what they’ll create, or how enthralling it might be. —Angela Watercutter

Release date: 2012

A Fairy-Tale Revamp: Snow White and the Huntsman

Story: Snow White (played by Kristen Stewart) threatens the fairest-of-them-all title of an evil queen (Charlize Theron). Said queen sends a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to kill her, but the whole thing gets out of hand when Snow White begins training with the huntsman in the art of war.

Why it could be cool: We were admittedly skeptical about this film, but then the first trailer (above) was released and we went from "meh" to "meep!" Not only did it take Snow White out of the flow-y dresses and put her in some serious armor, it turned the whole fairy tale on its head. Screenwriter Evan Daugherty has said his guiding principle was, "What if, instead of saving Snow White, the huntsman teaches Snow White to save herself?" That alone sets the tone for a fairly intriguing revamp, but throw in Hemsworth (aka Thor) doing his hammer-swinging thing with axes instead and we're all of a sudden more ready for a new Snow White movie than we ever thought we would be.

Cautionary note: It seems unlikely, but there is a chance everything worth seeing in Snow White and the Huntsman was in that first trailer. —Angela Watercutter

Release date: June 1

On the Road, and It's About Time


Story: Don't make us trot out the dunce caps. You should probably have read On the Road well before college, so we're all scratching our heads why it took this long to transform the book into a film. David Cronenberg already made the previously unfilmable Naked Lunch, for Mugwump's sake!

Why it could be cool: Jack Kerouac's timeless novel of geographical and metaphysical liberation in a '40s stuffed with sex, drugs, jazz and cars influenced everyone from Bob Dylan and The Doors to Hunter S. Thompson's gonzo journalism. Walter Salles' On the Road film adaptation will star Tron Legacy's Garrett Hedlund and the Twilight franchise's Kristen Stewart for post-millennial fanboys and girls. Plus, Viggo Mortensen as William S. Burroughs? Sold!

Cautionary note: Stream-of-consciousness is hard to contain. That's a philosophical way of saying that On the Road's 2012 release date has not been officially confirmed.—Scott Thill

Release date: To be decided

Kristen's Preparation Process for 'On The Road' + New/Old BTS Picture

image host

In his article, author Lionel Rolfe delves into Gerald Nicosia’s book “One And Only: The Untold Story of On The Road” which focuses on Lu Anne Henderson’s role in the story of Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady’s friendship and the advent of the Beat Generation. Rolfe discusses how Mr. Nicosia’s research and expertise affected ‘On The Road’ the film, and in particular, Kristen’s preparation process for the role of Marylou and the “necessary estrogen” of ‘On The Road’.

Mr. Rolfe writes, “The new film is more from the viewpoint of Lu Anne, Cassady’s first wife. That is because Nicosia as the preeminent Kerouac scholar was hired as an advisor for “On The Road.” When he played the tapes for actress Kristen Stewart, both he and the actress had some major revelations.

Stewart plays Marylou, who was 15 when she met Cassady. Marylou was a sweet 16 when they married, discounted as the stunning 16-year-old blond bimbo who Kerouac and Cassady shared, but otherwise was of little account. “One And Only: The Untold Story of On The Road” strongly disputes that account, and portrays Lu Anne as as the glue that bound these two powerful characters. She molded their relationship, and thus was a major catalyst of American literature…

To be sure, a lot of serendipity was involved in how the story unfolded. Nicosia decided to play the interview for Stewart during a beat boot camp “On The Road” director Walter Salles set up in Montreal in the summer of 2010. Nicosia had recorded the hours-long interview with Lu Anne in 1978. For Stewart, she was looking for the rhythm of Lu Anne’s language. For Nicosia, he realized that he had not really understood what Lu Anne was saying when he first recorded the interview…”

Rolfe asked Nicosia to try and make of it what he could.

“What we now know is that the dynamic duo of Kerouac and Cassady was actually a trio: Neal, Lu Anne, and Jack,” he replied.”It was always assumed that these two guys, cultural outlaws, a kind of modern-day Butch Cassady and Sundance Kid, just magically found each other, combined forces, and started the Beat Generation.

“What we now know, thanks to Lu Anne’s testimony, is that both these guys were enormously insecure and vulnerable, that they were very different (though both were misfits in post-World War II America), and that neither one liked or trusted the other when they met.

“It took the depth and insight of a woman’s love, Lu Anne’s, to allow them to see enough in each other’s character, and in each other’s heart, to begin to form the friendship that changed contemporary America. Without Lu Anne–the “necessary estrogen,” as Kristen Stewart put it–the chemical reaction, the new and potent compound of Kerouac-Cassady, simply wouldn’t have happened or existed.

Uma Thurman talks about Rob and 'Bel Ami' with Harper's Bazaar UK


He may be the co-star in her latest movie but that didn't stop Uma Thurman from being upfront about Robert Pattinson.

The 41-year-old actress was obviously expecting a question about the Twilight star when she appeared in this month's Harper's Bazaar UK magazine - and she was certainly ready to answer it.

'To answer the ubiquitous question about this movie, yes, Robert is good-looking in person, but he doesn’t have that diamond-sparkle skin like in those Dracula movies,' she said.

The mother-of-two was of course referring to upcoming film Bel Ami in which she plays Pattinson's secret love interest.

As she draped herself across a velvet sofa in an array of designer dresses, Thurman went on to say that she enjoyed the role very much.

'It was a fun character, a nice, meaty, dramatic role, and who doesn’t love an excuse to wear a corset?' she told the monthly publication.

But before she could change the subject, she had one more thing to say about Pattinson: 'He’s a very disciplined, very serious, very ambitious, very organised actor.'

Thurman then went on to admit that it was only six years ago that she felt comfortable in the acting world.
'Acting was a place where I could fit in with those who didn’t fit in,' she explained.

The full feature appears in the February issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, on sale Thursday 5th January
