Filmmaker David Cronenberg, the creative mind behind such diverse films as Scanners, Dead Ringers, and A History of Violence, announced at this year's Venice Film Festival that he is in the early stages of developing a series for television. Though he was unable to discuss any of the series' specifics (stating he "can't talk about […]
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends! The Weekly Static! The Weekly Static! As I've mantra'd for the past six episodes, The Weekly Static is my righteously desperate-yet-endearing attempt at finding the lighter side and an interesting perspective on the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, […]
In what has been described as a competitive situation that I hope didn't involve any righteous migraines or exploding skulls, David Cronenberg's cult classic 1981 science fiction thriller Scanners is being developed as a television series. Once the dust settled from a bidding war involving a number of film and television studios like Lionsgate, Skydance […]
In a vintage interview on Late Night with David Letterman, director Martin Scorsese talks about his earlier love of film. Unable to play sports, he spent much of his free time in movie theaters. Those early experiences led to a life-long study of film and, of course, making films like Taxi Driver and Goodfellas. Scorsese […]

Very disturbing, very bizzare and doesn't really give anything away about the plot.
Charged with "updating" Shivers' screenplay is screenwriter Ian Driscoll. I wish him, and director Rie Rasmussen, the best of luck.
This thing has cinehipster appeal just dripping off of it. Hopefully, it will also be good.
Cameras will start rolling next spring.
This won't be a popular idea.
Brandon Cronenberg, son of David, has opted for a horrific sci-fi premise in his first feature film, Antiviral. It's almost as though he contracted the bug from somewhere...
Had Cosmopolis worked, it probably would have turned out as something between Mary Harron's American Psycho and Martin Scorsese's After Hours. It is both a Ulyssean tale of one man's journey from the affluence and decadence of his adulthood back to the innocence of his childhood, and a cautionary tale of a business prodigy so […]
Cosmopolis is, among other things, a film about a very rich man in a very nice limousine trying to get across midtown Manhattan by effectively cutting a swathe through hordes of angry protesters. That the film is two hours long is a testament to just how angry those protesters are, or perhaps it's just a […]
It hasn't become clear just what David Cronenberg's next feature will be, now that he's delivered Cosmopolis in time for Cannes. He does have a TV pilot called Knifeman on the cards, but beyond that, all I can see are a number of in-development projects that go way back, and which have been lying so […]
