Cronenberg On Eastern Promises 2
And The Fly 3!

Cronenberg On Eastern Promises 2

A Dangerous Method is about to premiere at the New York Film Festival; Cosmopolis is in the can; and there have been various rumours in recent months about what else David Cronenberg may have in development. "Sometimes on IMDb you see you're doing three movies you've never even heard of," he told Shock. Thankfully, he's happy to clarify.

There were odd rumblings some time ago of Cronenberg remaking his own version of The Fly. Not strictly true, says the director, but not exactly false either. "Yeah, that was a thing," he says. "It's not exactly a remake; it's sort of a sequel, kinda. I've written a script of that but I don't know if it's going to really happen. That has to do with Fox..."

He definitely isn't making Timecrimes, the English-language version of Nacho Vigalondo's sci-fi thriller: "They proposed it to me and I turned it down, and then suddenly it was on the 'net like I'm doing it! I think it was the director of the Spanish version that was responsible for saying I'm doing it, but I never was."

But a sequel to 2007's Eastern Promises definitely is on the cards, albeit not quite as an immediate prospect. "It's possible," says Cronenberg carefully. "Steve Knight wrote it, and he's now writing a second draft, and Focus are interested, so we'll see..."

More naked Viggo violence? Something to erase the memory of The Fly II? Or would you rather Cronenberg shocked with the new rather than revisiting the old? A Dangerous Method is out in the UK in February, followed by Cosmopolis some time later in the year.

Of the Don Delillo adaptation (which stars Robert Pattinson) Cronenberg enthuses, "It's very cinematic. Well, it is and it isn't. Most of the movie takes place inside a limo. Some people would say that's not cinematic, but I say it is!"
