David Cronenberg’s ‘Maps to the Stars’ Gets Green Light
The details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but it’s been called a “ghost story” of sorts, centered on the lives of two former child stars living in L.A
L.A.-based studios have been wary of funding the film is that it’s reportedly a scathing attack on celebrity culture and Hollywood society in particular, possibly comparable to Brett Easton Ellis’ novel 1998 Glamorama. However, despite the difficulties, Cronenberg’s new project has been green-lit and is set to star Robert Pattinson in the lead role, along with Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Sarah Gadon. Filming will begin in Toronto and Los Angeles in July of this year.
Pattinson has been attached to the project almost since its conception and, as was the case with Cronenberg’s 2012 thriller Cosmopolis, it’s largely thanks to the involvement of the highly bankable star that Maps to the Stars has received funding and is heading into production. The film is being co-financed by Entertainment One Films, who are also in charge of worldwide sales and distribution, and Martin Katz’s production company Prospero Pictures, who also worked with Cronenberg on Cosmopolis and A Dangerous Method.from @eOneFilmsUS
