"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 version, Eastern Promises, The Sweet Hereafter), the movie is a reconnection of D. Cronenberg (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.
