Keira Knightley Takes The Talking Cure
Starring in David Cronenberg's new drama

Talk about your indie cast dream teams: Keira Knightley, Christoph Waltz and Michael Fassbender have all signed on to star in David Cronenberg's adaptation of The Talking Cure.

Cosmopolis...
I wouldn't say Cosmopolis is Sci-Fi particularly, if anything its a kind of modern James Joyce type deal with Dublin swapped for New York and Bloomsday being changed to the dot-com market crash of the early 2000's...It's not one of Don DeLillo's better books (Libra, White Noise, Underworld and Mao II are crying out for screen treatments), but it would be interesting to see what happens with Cronenberg helming. The last I ehard was that it's meant to be in production at the moment, or at the very More

wait a second...
Some months ago you reported he was working on an adaptation of a cult science fiction book (is there any other kind?) called Cosmopolis i think. what's happened to that plan? More

Hmmm?
Even though A History Of Violence and Eastern Promises were great I would really like Cronie to tuck into some weirdness again soon. More
