COLOGNE, Germany - Swiss distributor Falcom has secured all rights in Germany and Austria for Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg's adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel starring Robert Pattinson as a billionaire Wall Street broker travelling on a odyssey through Manhattan to get a haircut.

Colin Farrell was originally slated to play the lead before being replaced by the Twilight star.

Cosmopolis also features Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Smantha Morton and Canadian actress Sarah Gadon.

Falcom plans to bow the film this year in Germany and Austria. A domestic release date has yet to be set.
