We’ve seen Caleb Landry Jones in a still from Brandon Cronenberg’s totally absurd and surreal sounding futuristic sci-fi thriller “Antiviral”, and today Twitch Film brings us our first look at leading lady Sarah Gadon in two new stills.
Cronenberg’s Cannes-bound Un Certain Regard selection revolves around Landry Jones’ Syd March, who works at a shady clinic that sells injections of celebrity diseases to obsessed fans. He also smuggles vials of the stuff to sell for his own profit off the books, and when he’s infected with the diseases that ultimately killed superstar Hannah Geist, he must solve the mystery of her death before it takes him too. Judging by the image of Gadon’s giant likeness plastered all over Syd’s walls, we have to assume she plays that late celebrity he becomes obsessed with.
“Antiviral”, which also stars Malcolm McDowell, Douglas Smith, Matt Watts and James Cade, has no distributors or release dates in place yet, though news should come soon as it gears up for its big splashy premiere on the Croisette next week. See the two new images below.
