David Cronenberg's 'Scanners' Being Developed For TV

In what has been described as a competitive situation that I hope didn't involve any righteous migraines or exploding skulls, David Cronenberg's cult classic 1981 science fiction thriller Scanners is being developed as a television series.Once the dust settled from a bidding war involving a number of film and television studios like Lionsgate, Skydance and[...]

Bizarre And Totally Cronenberg First Trailer For His Debut Novel

"What the hell did I just watch?" was my first thought upon watching this trailer for David Cronenberg's Consumed, transferring his singular cinematic vision to prose form for the first time with his debut novel.Very disturbing, very bizzare and doesn't really give anything away about the plot, which actually sounds mundane after watching this: "the[...]

Rie Rasmussen To Remake David Cronenberg's Shivers

Then, in 2008 she directed Human Zoo, an idiosyncratic, explosively aggressive drama about immigration in modern Europe.She since directed another film, Romance in the Dark, which I've never seen so much as a trailer for, and for her third, is set to remake David Cronenberg's Shivers.The original film came up here just a week back[...]

Rachel Weisz To Star In David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars

Videodrome Remake Apparently Set To Turn It Into "Large-Scale Sci-Fi Action Thriller"

Commercials director Adam Berg is perhaps best known for his Carousel spot for Phillips, a gimmicky interactive take on the "bullet time" camera effect that traded on imagery from The Dark Knight to promote a short-lives series of cinemascope-shaped TV sets (I'll put a non-interactive version at the foot of this post).Now he's been set[...]

Cosmopolis – The Other Bleeding Cool Review

Had Cosmopolis worked, it probably would have turned out as something between Mary Harron's American Psycho and Martin Scorsese's After Hours. It is both a Ulyssean tale of one man's journey from the affluence and decadence of his adulthood back to the innocence of his childhood, and a cautionary tale of a business prodigy so […]

Cronenberg To Shoot New Movie In France, Reunite With Robert Pattinson

It hasn't become clear just what David Cronenberg's next feature will be, now that he's delivered Cosmopolis in time for Cannes.He does have a TV pilot called Knifeman on the cards, but beyond that, all I can see are a number of in-development projects that go way back, and which have been lying so still[...]
