Kristen Stewart, David Cronenberg Teasing Future Crimes

Stewart said of Cronenberg’s latest wild: “Sex has changed quite a bit, and the new art form is developing internal organs.

David Cronenberg hasn’t wanted to work in the last few years — with recurring roles on TV’s “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Slasher” and “Alias ​​Grace,” and a few short films out of the box. But he hasn’t directed a film since 2014’s “Maps to the Stars” won Best Actress for Julianne Moore at Cannes. He finally went back behind the camera for “Crime of the future, a speculative sci-fi film with a stacked cast that includes Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Scott Speedman, Welket Bungué, Don McKellar and Lihi Kornowski. The film was shot in Greece earlier this year.

As revealed in a New interview with Document (via The Film Stage), Cronenberg is currently in the process of editing “Crime of the Future” and is working closely with Stewart (whom he cross-interviewed for the film) on post-production. If all goes well, this will appear at Cannes next year.

“I wrote this script 20 years ago, so it’s almost like the script someone else wrote. Except for some roles that I took in Athens, with Greek actors, I have never heard any dialogue before. So when I heard Kristen start to say this character’s lines, it was a shock! I was like, ‘Oh, my God, this is a living thing – out of control, in the sense that it has its own life – and it’s coming to life right in front of me.’

He continued, “I spent time with Kristen every day, but in the editing room. It’s a strangely intimate relationship because you become so sensitive, as a director, to every hesitation, every body movement, every sound. So you have this weird relationship with an actor who doesn’t know you’re doing it.”

Meanwhile, in a Interview with Screen Daily hot on the awards track for her role as Princess Diana in “Spencer,” Stewart has provided more insight into the film’s details, and it sounds like the stuff of classic Cronenberg.

Stewart said: “The film is set in a world where everyone has grown to the point where we don’t feel any physical pain. “Sex has changed quite a bit, and new art forms are developing organs. Viggo [Mortensen] is a famous performer. Léa Seydoux is his partner, who tattoos these parts and displays them. My character became enamored with Viggo’s artist”.

Read Neon’s previously released synopsis of the film here:

Dive into the not-so-distant future, where humanity is learning to adapt to a synthetic environment. This evolution took humans out of their natural state and into a metamorphosis, changing their biological makeup. While some embrace the limitless potential of transhumanism, others try to police it. Either way, ‘Accelerated Evolution Syndrome’ is spreading rapidly. Saul Tenser is a beloved performer who suffers from Accelerated Evolution Syndrome, which sprouts new and unexpected organs in the body. Together with his partner Caprice, Tenser turned these organ harvesting into a spectacle for his loyal followers to marvel at in real-time theatre. But with both the government and a strange subculture taking notice, Tenser is forced to consider what will be his most shocking performance.
