David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Dead Zone, The Fly, A History of Violence) returns to our lives with a new science fiction / horror project entitled Crimes of the Future which started shooting last summer, with the cast including Kristen Stewart and Viggo Mortensen. It is expected to be wild, certainly if this first reaction is any indication.
The World of Reel reports that Crimes of the future has started airing for international developers before making its debut at the festival, most likely in Cannes, but this has not yet been confirmed.
An anonymous person reportedly said on the website, “I can not say much, obviously, but If people thought that “Crash” was split in 1996, it would definitely create a lot more chaos and controversy. The last twenty minutes are a very difficult seat. I am waiting for departures, fainting and real panic attacks (I almost had one too!) At the Lumière theater. Without exaggeration, I promise. “
They added, “[Léa] SeydouHis role is too noisy and radical to claim the Cannes Award for Best Actor in my book, but I would like to prove myself wrong. I see no precedent in Cannes for a show of this caliber / genre gaining momentum with a jury… I mean Seydoux is essentially playing a (very naked) near future artist who looks like Gina Pane. »
The deadline was recently analyzed Crimes of the future“This is Cronenberg’s first original science fiction screenplay since 1999 existence. It sounds just as ambitious, taking a deep dive into the not-so-distant future where humanity is learning to adapt to its synthetic environment. This evolution leads people beyond their physical condition and into a transformation, changing their biological composition. While some embrace the unlimited possibilities of superhumanity, others try to police it. “Either way, the ‘Rapid Evolution Syndrome is spreading fast.’
In the film, “Saul Tenser is a favorite performance artist who has embraced Accelerated Development Syndrome, implanting new and unexpected organs in his body. Together with his partner Caprice, Tenser has turned the removal of these instruments into a spectacle for his loyal fans who will admire the theater in real time. “But given both the government and a strange subculture, Tenser is forced to think about what his most shocking performance of all would be.”
The cast of the film also includes Scott Speedman, Welket Bungué, Don McKellar, Lichy Kornowski, Tanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, George Karamihosand George Pirpasopoulos.
NEON is ready to be released Crimes of the future in the United States.
