Cronenberg Has A New Horror Project In The Works

We're about to see the body-horror master back to his origins

The master of horror is back.

A recent collaborator with David Cronenberg, Viggo Mortensen, has dropped some useful information on Cronenberg's latest escapade. The two worked together on A history of Violence, and Eastern Promises, and A Dangerous Method, three thrillers starring Mortenson. Falling flipped the roles and had Mortenson debut as a director with Cronenberg taking up a small role in the film.

It's something [Cronenberg] wrote a long time ago, and he never got it made. Now he's refined it, and he wants to shoot it. Hopefully, it'll be this summer we'll be filming. I would say, without giving the story away, he's going maybe a little bit back to his origins... It's very interesting. It's almost like a strange film noir story. It's disturbing and it's good, I think. But since his origins, he's obviously developed in terms of technique and self-assurance as a director.

We've seen David's son, Brandon, follow in his footsteps with Possessor which CultLeader Z, A, and I thought was a masterpiece. His mix of thriller and body-horror elements were reminiscent of his father's work with modernized spins in stylization with stunning camera visuals.

If you're new to David Cronenberg, watch Scanners, Videodrome, and The Fly.
