Three More Clips From Cosmopolis – A Little NSFW Around The Edges

How much of David Cronenberg‘s latest is going to be set in a single limo? These clips each feature an “interaction” with a different female character, but they all take place in the back of the same car.  Subtext ahoy. Well, this is all except for the bit where – SPOILER ALERT! – Robert Pattinson […]

First Clip From David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis – “A Spectre Is Haunting The World”

He’s not a very nice man, this Eric Packer. And he’s got a rather oblique way of expressing himself. David Cronenberg‘s film of Cosmopolis will take its (deliberately?) pretentious dialogue and (deliberately?) stilted performances to Cannes later this month. There’s a tone to this clip, and to the trailers, that suggests a pretty intense experience. […]

David Cronenberg Directing And Sam Raimi Producing New TV Project, Knifeman

Knifeman is to be David Cronenberg‘s first foray into directing TV since he delivered an episode of the Nightmare on Elm Street series.  From the details on hand, it sounds like a pretty good match – there’s certainly going to be a lot of interesting body parts about, and a lead character with some unorthodox […]

New Stills And (Not Quite) Footage From David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis

David Cronenberg has been out at the Lisbon and Estoril film fest where he held a Q&A and presented an early rough trailer for his Don De Lillo adaptation, Cosmopolis. A fraction of that trailer has been captured and posted to YouTube. Mainly the audio fraction, if we’re being honest. Here it is, anyway, with […]

Cronenberg’s Jonathan Lethem Adaptation Acquires A Screenwriter

Body horror king David Cronenberg is getting a lot of press lately for his forthcoming Sigmund Freud drama A Dangerous Method, which is about to pack up its tent and wellies in preparation for the festival circuit, and his recently wrapped adaptation of Cosmopolis,  but he’s also attached to an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem’s novel […]

Alexandre Aja Bringing Scanners To TV

What the world needs now is a bad Scanners TV show like I need a hole for a head. A good Scanners TV show, though? Well, of course. Who doesn’t love the world created in David Cronenberg’s classic movie of psychic warfare? Or, perhaps more properly, love to hate it? According to Deadline, Dimension have […]

David Cronenberg Casts Robert Pattinson In Cosmopolis

The last time we were talking about Cosmopolis, it was Colin Farrell who was going to have to lay down naked in the middle of a Manhattan road with Marion Cotillard; now, it’s set to be Robert Pattinson, the poor, unfortunate pin-up of Twihards everywhere. The film is being adapted from Don De Lillo’s novel […]
