The cast for the upcoming thriller Maps to the Stars from award-winning director David Cronenberg includes Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method) .
Turns out that despite Rachel Weisz dropped out last month and Viggo Mortensen is no longer attached, a haunting ghost project is moving full steam ahead.
Patrice Théroux from Canadian giant Entertainment One Films (‘eOne’) said:
We’re thrilled to secure worldwide sales rights for Maps to the Stars and add it to the lineup in four of our core territories. David is a visionary who continues to attract top talent with his unique style and the masterful quality of his filmmaking. With this all-star cast ‘Maps to the Stars’ is a very exciting international project and we’re looking forward to introducing the project in Cannes.
Martin Katz from Prospero Pictures added:
Maps to the Stars’ marks Prospero’s fourth collaboration with David over the past decade and together with our partners, we are delighted to be launching this audacious new film this year, particularly with eOne. The eOne team just gets it and continues to showcase films at the highest levels on the international stage.
Penned by Bruce Wagner (Wild Palms), Maps to the Stars offers a critique of celebrity-obsessed society in Los Angeles.
Production is set to begin in July in Toronto and Los Angeles.
