Those of you who have been hoping for David Cronenberg to direct a true horror film again might just be getting your wish – so long as you don’t mind a bit of social commentary added to the mix.
Per THR, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Sarah Gadon, and Robert Pattinson have joined the cast of David Cronenberg’s next picture, Maps to the Stars, a ghost story and critique of celebrity-obsessed society in Los Angeles.
Longtime Cronenberg producer Martin Katz and his Prospero Pictures shingle are partnering with Entertainment One to finance the indie movie. The screenplay is by Bruce Wagner (Wild Palms). Sentient Entertainment’s Renee Tab, Cronenberg’s manager, will executive produce with Integral Films’ Alfred Hurmer co-producing.
Maps to the Stars marks Prospero’s fourth collaboration with Cronenberg, most recently on A Dangerous Method and Cosmopolis, which also starred Pattinson and Gadon.
Entertainment One Films will handle worldwide sales and distribution, with production on the film to begin in July in Toronto and Los Angeles.
Look for more soon!
