DAVID CRONENBERG’S SON TO DIRECT FIRST FEATURE

Posted in Movies, News, Sci-Fi with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 5, 2011 by darklordbunnykins

We were intrigued to learn that David Cronenberg’s son Brandon is about to start filming his first feature. Antiviral stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class), Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method) and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) and will be shot in Hamilton and Toronto from November 7 through to December 11.

From the press release: “Written by Cronenberg, the film follows Syd March, an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. Biological communion – for a price. Syd also supplies illegal samples of these viruses to piracy groups, smuggling them from the clinic in his own body. When he becomes infected with the disease that kills super sensation Hannah Geist, Syd becomes a target for collectors and rabid fans. He must unravel the mystery surrounding her death before he suffers the same fate.”

 

ANTIVIRAL is a fascinating mystery which revolves around society’s primal hunger to own its idols. It’s smart, engaging and scary, ” says producer Niv Fichman in a press release. “Brandon’s film is the third first-time feature we’ve produced in two years. Rhombus Media is committed to working with young writers and directors to bring new visions to the screen.”

“The creative team includes director of photography Karim Hussain (Hobo with a Shotgun), production designer Arvinder Greywal (Resident Evil: Afterlife) and art director Mark Steel (Alphas).”
