David Cronenberg Lines Up Cast For Maps To The Stars

It’s about damn time this picture gets ready to go.

Once thought of as possibly starting production this spring, David Cronenberg’s latest film, entitled Maps To The Stars, will not only be kicking off production this July, but the auteur will be joined by one hell of a cast. Deadline reports that the film will star Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon, with the latter actors taking over for Viggo Mortensen and Rachel Weisz respectively.

The film will tell the story of “two child actors ruined by Hollywood’s depravity,” and is a ghost story penned by Bruce Wagner. Personally, this sounds like yet another superb satire from one of today’s great satirists, and it’s interesting to see Pattinson re-team with his Cosmopolis director for another film. I was a huge fan of that picture, and really think this could be the start of a really exciting friendship. Hopefully this one can arrive sooner rather than later.
