David Cronenberg is arguably the greatest visionary of his time. With classics such as “The Fly,” “A History of Violence” and “Crash” it is easy to see why his new film is so eagerly anticipated. The film in question, “Maps to the Stars,” has a brand new trailer and boy, is it sexy, stylish and… strange. Very, very strange. After all, “Maps to the Stars” is tackling the Hollywood family and it’s said to be a “complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture.” After tackling various typesRead More
According to The Playlist, when the full lineup of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival is announced next week, David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars” is almost surely going to be among the titles. While we wait for that inevitable announcement, today we have a new image of Mia Wasikowska in the film. Wasikowska is joined in the film about a dysfunctional Hollywood family by John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon. She plays Agatha, who’s just been released from a sanitarium, and has been previously describedRead More
David Cronenberg continues to build an impressive cast for his next feature, and today has added Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and “The Killing” kid actor Evan Bird to “Map to the Stars.” The trio join previous cast members Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon for the LA-set drama. Bruce Wagner wrote the script on the long-gestating project, which involves Hollywood characters like actors, agents and managers, with both Cronenberg and Pattinson using words like weird and absurd to describe the tone of the piece. Deadline also givesRead More
The “Cosmopolis” duo of Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon are reuniting, and will star together in their director David Cronenberg’s next feature, “Map to the Stars”, according to Deadline. John Cusack and Julianne Moore have also joined the cast of the LA-set thriller, replacing previously-rumored cast members Viggo Mortensen and Rachel Weisz. Bruce Wagner wrote the script on the long-gestating project, which involves Hollywood characters like actors, agents and managers, but beyond that there’s very little plot details, though both Cronenberg and Pattinson have used words like weird and absurdRead More
The official Cannes Film Festival lineup has finally been unveiled and looks like we can expect a more than usual number of up and coming young actors to head to the French Riviera next month. As expected, teen phenomenon “Twilight” will be well represented with stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart each headlining a Cannes-bound flick for the very first time. Pattinson stars in David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo novel “Cosmopolis”, while Stewart plays a supporting role in Walter Salles’ long-gestating, highly anticipated adaptation of Jack Kerouac classic “OnRead More
We’ve probably all known this for quite a while, but the first full length trailer for David Cronenberg’s trippy adaptation of Don DeLillo novel “Cosmopolis” makes it official. “Twilight” heartthrob Robert Pattinson is heading to the Cannes Film Festival for the very first time as he stars as Eric Packer, a billionaire playboy whose quest to get a haircut is ran wildly off-course by mysterious assassins, sexual partners (none of which are his wife, played by Sarah Gadon), giant rats and several apparent suicide attempts. You know, the usual ManhattanRead More
The first teaser trailer for David Cronenberg‘s adaptation of Don Delillo’s “Cosmopolis” has been released today and there’s kink, crime and nudity; it would seem that Robert Pattinson sure is trying to break away from Edward Cullen. As the British actor looks to shed his Twilight image, and the famed director aims to gain back some of the critical acclaim that rumours would suggest he has recently lost, we see Pattinson’s Eric Packer shoot himself in the hand, have sex in a limosine and ask us darkly to “show me somethingRead More
Jay Baruchel has spent the last couple of years moving into mainstream lead roles, with mixed success. It looks like he is slowly moving back into the indie fare though, recently completing production on David Cronenberg’s Robert Pattinson-starrer “Cosmopolis” and working on his upcoming project with Seth Rogen, “The Apocalypse.” Up next for Baruchel will be his portrayal of John Armstrong (aka Buck Cherry), the frontman of 1980s Vancouver-based band The Modernettes. Variety reports that the film will be called “The Rebel Kind” and will “chronicle the emergence of [Vancouver's]Read More

Jones will star as a salesman who works for a clinic that has mastered the art of replicating celebrity diseases and sells them for public consumption. Jones’ character becomes obsessed with one celebrity in particular and injectsRead More
