David Cronenberg’s latest film “Future Crimes” is likely to hit cinemas in German-speaking countries in November 2022. However, Cronenberg is said to be already working on a new project. The title of the new film, according to Variety, is “Shrouds.” Cronenberg will write and direct the script. The lead actor has also been cast. Vincent Cassel worked with Cronenberg twice. First in 2007 for Deadly Promises, then again in 2011 for A Dark Desire. In Shrouds, Cassel is assigned to play a businessman and widower who builds a device that allows him to communicate with the dead.
Filming is scheduled to begin in March 2023. Most recently, Cronenberg directed Map to the Stars (2014), which was followed by a directorial break for several years. Future Crimes and Shrouds are Cronenberg’s comeback projects as director. At the moment, the 79-year-old does not seem to want to retire, as we previously indicated. “Crimes of The Future” will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this year, and according to Cronenberg, it’s sure to have a potential for scandal. In an interview with Deadline, the director announced that he was sure people would leave the room within the first five minutes of the film. (lw)
