Rachel Weisz To Star In David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars

We’ve known for some time that David Cronenberg‘s next project, Maps to the Stars, would see the return of two of his previous male leads in Robert Pattinson and Viggo Mortensen. For a long while the project was unconfirmed because, like Cosmopolis, Cronenberg said that it was very difficult to get funding for. However, the film seems to be geared up and ready to go now, with an announced budget of $15 million and a new female lead.

Allocine report that Rachel Weisz has also signed on to the project, which will start filming in May 2013. The film is about two former child actors who have found their lives ruined by the spotlight. Possibly something along the lines of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane – at least, that’s the picture in my mind right now, with Pattinson as Bette Davis. It will be set in Hollywood and will be the first film that Cronenberg has ever shot in America.

The screenplay was written by novelist Bruce Wagner, whose previous film writing credits include A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and satirical TV series State of the Union.
