It's been seven years since we had a new David Cronenberg movie, but it looks like a new feature is on the horizon. It's been reported by KFTV (via Screen Daily) that the next project on the docket for the director is Crimes of the Future.
If that title sounds familiar, it should. One of Cronenberg's first films was also called that... could this be a remake of his own earlier forays into cinema?
According to The Film Stage, the earlier movie was "set in 1997, following a mad dermatologist who searches for his mentor after a cosmetic invention gone wrong kills the entire population of sexually mature women."
That sounds crazy and fun.
Shooting starts this summer in Greece, and actor Viggo Mortenson told GQ he would be reuniting with the director for a role. While we don't have any other more solid details than that, producer Robert Lantos told The Film Stage, “I am looking forward to returning to Greece to shoot another film with Argonauts. It has been 14 years since we shot Fugitive Pieces in Athens, Hydra, and Mitilini, an experience of which I have fond and positive souvenirs. Athens is the perfect setting for Crimes of the Future, as it is bespoke tailoring for David Cronenberg’s unique vision of a future which intermingles with the past.”
