One Of Hollywood's Top Directors Hates Rotten Tomatoes

David Cronenberg's Maps To The Stars Is A Middle Finger To Hollywood

With films like The Fly, Videodrome and eXistenZ, David Cronenberg's name has become synonymous with body horror.

This trailer appears to be a very early peek at the movie - so early, in fact, that it actually looks more like a sizzle reel - so the language and some of the content (LIMO SEX) is a little on the NSFW side. And while it looks plenty chatty, it also seems like the whole thing builds to some violence and/or a tragic death, particularly involving kids.

Cronenberg will be working with the screenplay written by Bruce Wagner, who is most known for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and a bunch of State of the Union episodes. It seems like it will have changed from the earlier 2006 draft, as that was referred to as a dark dramedy, and this is a thriller.

David Cronenberg Says Superhero Movies Aren't Art, Including The Dark Knight Rises

If you've ever seen a David Cronenberg film, you'll probably agree the writer-director of such bizarre features as The Fly, Videodrome, and eXistenZ marches to the beat of his own drum.
