DAVID CRONENBERG "CRIMES OF THE FUTURE" MOVIE STARTS
Canadian company Serendipity Point Films and Argonauts SA announce the start of filming of the long-awaited Crimes of the Future by award-winning screenwriter and director David Cronenberg. Internationally acclaimed actors Tanaya Beatty (Yellowstone, Through Black Spruce) and Nadia Litz (Big Muddy, Hotel Congress, Blindness) are included in the already announced cast of the film, with Viggo Mortensen (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, Green Book), Léa Seydoux (No Time to Die, The French Dispatch, Blue is the Warmest Color), Kristen Stewart (Seberg, Clouds of Sils Maria, Twilight), Scott Speedman (Barney's Version, Adoration, Sharp Stick), Welket Bungué (Berlin Alexanderplatz) , Don McKellar (Blindness, eXistenZ), and Lihi Kornowski (Losing Alice).

From Greece participate the George Karamihos and George Pyrpasopoulos. 

 

The film is being shot entirely in Athens, in August and September 2021.  

 

"As we begin filming Crimes Of The Future"Just two days into this new adventure with David Cronenberg, we feel like we're in a story in which he collaborated with Samuel Beckett and William Burroughs, if that was possible," said Viggo Mortensen. "We are drawn to a world that does not look like him or anyone else, and yet it is a world that you find strangely familiar, direct and quite convincing. I can't wait to see where we end up. " 

 

The Crimes of the Future is a bold original script from the mind of the famous creator David Cronenberg, whose last original script was eXistenZ in 1999. The Crimes of the Future gives us a taste of a not so distant future, where man learns to adapt to his synthetic environment. This condition pushes people beyond their natural evolution, into a transformation, changing their biological composition. Thus, while some accept the unlimited possibilities of this new reactionary post-humanism, others are constantly trying to suppress it. In any case, in this intricately woven world of Cronenberg, which marks the return of the iconic director to sci-fi, the "Accelerated Evolution Syndrome" is spreading rapidly. 

 

In its production Robert Lantos (Barney's versionEastern PromisesThe Sweet Hereafter), the movie is a reconnection of DCronenberg (Commission Award at the Cannes Film Festival, Golden Lion for his entire career at the Venice Film Festival, and Silver Bear in Berlin), with the three-time Oscar nominee viggo Mortensen, in their fourth collaboration.
