by | February 6, 2006 | Comments

Hot off the deservedly applauded "A History of Violence," director David Cronenberg has set his sights on a new project. It’s called "Maps to the Stars," and it’s to be a dark comedy about the underbelly of Hollywood. Insterestingly enough, this project will mark the first time the loyal Canadian works outside of his home country.

Says Variety: "A History of Violence" helmer David Cronenberg will next direct "Maps to the Stars," a Bruce Wagner-scripted darkly comic drama about Hollywood excess and intrigue.

Lensing will begin in the fall on the first pic the Canadian will shoot on U.S. soil.

"You could say it’s a Hollywood film because the characters are agents, actors and managers, but it is not a satire like ‘The Player,’ " Cronenberg said. "Bruce is brilliant about writing characters in this world, and I’d wanted to do something with him for ages."


For the record, Bruce Wagner wrote the movies "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" and "Scenes from the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills," the TV show "Wild Palms," and the novels "I’m Losing You" and "Women in Film."
