Robert Pattinson Maps to the Stars with Viggo?
Last week, the Criminal Complex crew brought you the word that the Robert Pattinson/David Cronenberg relationship looked like it would be an extended one, post-Cosmopolis, and jokingly referenced Pattinson as the next Viggo Mortenesen (or as I call him, Weps), an actor who had a string of collaborations with Cronenberg. It now looks like, if Cronenberg gets his way, Pattinson won’t have to be Viggo because Cronenberg wants Viggo to be Viggo and to have the former Edward Cullen and Aragorn son of Arathorn in the film.
The film in question, according to The Playlist, is Maps to the Stars, which sounds like a book that J.G. Ballard just didn’t get around to writing.
The film is a dark comedic drama about two child actors ruined by Hollywood’s depravity, and Cronenberg adds that “Maps To The Stars” is “very extreme. It’s not obviously a very big commercial movie, and even as an independent film it’s difficult. ‘Maps To the Stars’ is completely different [from 'Cosmopolis'], but it’s very acerbic and satirical, it’s a hard sell.”
Cronenberg reiterates that Maps to the Stars is a film he wants, and has wanted to for many years, to make but that isn’t currently a “go” film, citing difficulties in getting it made (and saying the same of Cosmopolis). He also adds that it would possibly be the first of his movies filmed in the United States, specifically Los Angeles, the setting for screenplay/movie.
