Award-winning director David Cronenberg is gearing up for a 30-day shoot in Greece for his long-awaited science-fiction film titled “Crimes of the Future.”
Cronenberg’s newest shares a title together with his 1970 sci-fi movie, which follows a dermatologist named Antoine Rouge who “disappears after a catastrophic disease is caused by cosmetic products.”
It’s unclear if the Canadian director plans to straight translate his earlier work for his new movie.
In accordance with Display screen Each day: “Shooting will take place over 30 days from August 2 to September 10, mostly around the capital, Athens, including at the Iris cinema, Arcade of Anatolia, and harbor of Piraeus. Local Greek outfit Argonauts Productions will serve as the Greek co-producer and production service company.”
Robert Lantos, the movie’s producer, advised KFTV: “I am looking forward to returning to Greece to shoot another film with Argonauts. It has been 14 years since we shot ‘Fugitive Pieces’ in Athens, Hydra and Mitilini, an experience of which I have fond and positive souvenirs. Athens is the perfect setting for ‘Crimes of the Future’ as it is bespoke tailoring for David Cronenberg’s unique vision of a future which intermingles with the past.”
The movie will star Viggo Mortensen, Lea Seydoux, Kristen Stewart and Scott Speedman.
Particular plot particulars for “Crimes of the Future” are remaining underneath wraps.
