Bestinau got that-
David Cronenberg †Scanners, Videodrome, The Dead Zone, The Fly, A history of violence) is on its way back into our lives with a new sci-fi/horror project titled Crimes of the future who started filming last summer, with the cast including Kristen Stewart and Viggo Mortensen† It is expected to be a wild one, especially if this initial reaction is any indication.
World of Reel reports that: Crimes of the future has started showing international programmers ahead of a festival debut, probably in Cannes, but that has not yet been confirmed.
An anonymous person reportedly told the site, “I can’t say much, of course, but” if people thought that “Crash” was divided in 1996, it will surely cause a lot more chaos and controversy. The last twenty minutes are a very tough sit† I expect walkouts, fainting spells and real panic attacks (I almost had one myself!) at the Lumière theatre. No exaggeration, I promise.”
They added: “[Léa] Seydoux‘s role is way too crazy and RADICAL to compete in my book for a prize for best actress in Cannes, but I would gladly be proved wrong. I see no precedent at Cannes for a performance of that caliber/genre gaining traction with a jury… I mean, Seydoux basically plays a (very often naked) Gina Pane-esque performer from the near future†
Deadline detailed recently Crimes of the future“This is Cronenberg’s first original sci-fi script since 1999 to exist† 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 takes people outside of their natural state and into a metamorphosis, where their biological composition changes. While some embrace the limitless potential of transhumanism, others try to control it. Anyway, the “Accelerated Evolution Syndrome” is spreading fast.”
In the film, “Saul Tenser is a beloved performance artist who has embraced the Accelerated Evolution Syndrome, creating new and unexpected organs in his body. Together with his partner Caprice, Tenser has made the removal of these organs a spectacle for his loyal followers in real-time theater. But with both the government and a strange subculture taking note, Tenser is forced to think about what would be his most shocking act of all.
The cast of the film also includes Scott Speedman, Welket Bungue, Don McKellar† Lihi Kornowski† Tanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, Yorgos Karamichosand Yorgos Pirpassopoulos†
NEON is on board to release Crimes of the future in the United States.
