Stiže novi Kronenberg
« on: 01-05-2022, 13:39:56 »
Crimes of the Future is an upcoming internationally co-produced body horror film written and directed by David Cronenberg. The film has the same name as a 1970 film by Cronenberg but it is not a remake of said film. The film will premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it will be in competition for the Palme d'Or. It marks Cronenberg's return to horror/sci-fi filmmaking since eXistenZ (1999).
The film was set to begin production in early 2003 under the title Painkillers, which explored the world of performance art and took place in an anaesthetized society where pain is the new forbidden pleasure, and surgery and self-mutilation, being performed in public and on camera, have come to be regarded as the new sex. Ralph Fiennes was attached to star as Saul Tenser after Nicolas Cage, the first option for the main role, dropped out. ThinkFilm had picked up worldwide rights on the $35 million thriller, scheduled for a late 2006 release in North America. However, the project never came through. In a mid-2000s interview, director David Cronenberg brushed the project aside, stating that it was not happening and that he had lost interest in making it anyway.

In February 2021, during a chat with GQ magazine, Viggo Mortensen revealed that he was working on a project with Cronenberg, saying: "Yes, we do have something in mind. It's something he 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". In April, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart were among the cast announced for the film. In August 2021, Tanaya Beatty, Yorgos Karamihos, Nadia Litz and Yorgos Pirpassopoulos joined the cast of the film.

Principal photography began on August 2, 2021 and concluded on September 10, 2021, in Athens, Greece.
