The road through Hollywood is littered with the remains of projects that could have been. So while we continue to prepare for August’s release of Len Wiseman’s ‘Total Recall’ – another adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" – the Internet teases the version David Cronenberg once wanted to film. You decide which one might have been better.
There is a sense that David Cronenberg has gone soft. Sure, 'A History of Violence' had it's share of brutality, but the last couple films have not had the intense mind-games mixed with a smattering of sex and violence that marked Cronenberg's career until recently. And with his latest film starring Robert Pattinson, has the man gone soft? Think again... watch the trailer for 'Cosmopolis.'
Later this year, Robert Pattinson will team with beloved genre director David Cronenberg for ‘Cosmopolis,’ an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s celebrated novel that casts the ‘Twilight’ sensation in a markedly different light. Don’t believe me? Then check out this racy, NSFW teaser that suggests Pattinson’s ready to blow a hole through his Team Edward image and take his career to new depths.
An 18th century-set show about a self-taught surgeon honing his skills on black market bodies? Who better to helm such a series than the mind behind 'Scanners', 'Videodrome' and 'The Fly', David Cronenberg?
