David Cronenberg has been talking to several outlets about Cosmopolis because of the US Bluray/DVD release and mentioned a couple of things about Maps To The Stars.
First, he told Movieline that filming is still on target for May if everything goes according to plan.
Movieline: Is your next project ready to go?But he also says this is an indie film and things change...such as this excerpt from Details online magazine:
Cronenberg: Finishing my novel right now, and I hope to be shooting Maps of the Stars in May, written by Bruce Wagner. However, it is an indie project which means, therefore, that it could fall apart.
DETAILS: Maps to the Stars is supposed to start shooting in May. Have you been able to sign Robert Pattinson, Viggo Mortensen, and Rachel Weisz?Hmmmm....so Viggo is more likely out than in BUT could be in since things change everyday. We'll keep you posted!
DAVID CRONENBERG: I don't think Viggo will be able to do it, but with the other two, so far, so good. Have they signed? No. But they have a verbal commitment if everything works out and if other things don't come along. It's still very possible for the three of them, but it's far from certain. That's life in the indie film world.
The info regarding Rob we know already but David's interviews are great reads. Take a look to learn more about Cosmopolis, Cronenberg's filmmaking process and more!
