A few quotes surrounding the release:
  • ThePlaylistHis films may be freaky and funky and may not appeal to the average Joe Moviegoer, but stars line up to work with David Cronenberg. Simply, with unique stories usually married with inventive visuals, the filmmaker makes the kinds of movies few get the chance to do in Hollywood and so it comes as no surprise that his upcoming "Maps To The Stars" is lining up talent left and right....Drugs, disfigurement, manipulation? Yep, that's Cronenberg.
  • Up&Comers: David Cronenberg continues to build an impressive cast for his next feature
  • TheFilmStage: It sounds the director is moving further into unhinged territory
In the press release, producer, Martin Katz, said:
The level of talent that we are attracting to this film speaks to the continuing allure of David Cronenberg. We are thrilled to share these latest casting additions as we take this exciting new project to Cannes.
The film is full steam ahead with sales happening later this month in Cannes and production beginning in Toronto and Los Angeles this July.

Um. Am I excited?? YES. MTTS news makes me get up and dance. This is going to be a great production.
