Described as Cronenberg’s return to the roots of the horrors of his body, the stars of Crimes of the Future. Lea SeydouKristen Stewart, Scott Speedman, Tanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, George Karamichos, George Pirpasopoulos, Welket Bunge, Don McKellar, Lihy Kornowski and Vigo Mortensen, who previously starred in Cronenberg’s films History of violence, Eastern promises, and Dangerous method. Written by Cronenberg, this one tells the following story:
As the human species adapts to the synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. Together with his partner Caprice (Seydou), Sol Tenser (Mortensen), a famous performance artist, publicly demonstrated the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin (Stewart), a researcher at the National Register of Organs, obsessively traces their movements when a mysterious group is revealed … Their mission is to use Saul’s fame to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.
Earlier, Mortensen said that this “strange film noir story” was something that Cronenberg originally wrote a long time ago, but recently pulled off the shelf and “refined.” In fact, the film was almost made (under the title Painkillers) in the early 2000s, with Nicholas Cage attached to the star. When Cage dropped out, Ralph Fiennes signed. But Cronenberg could not put it into production. Crimes of the future is the first time Cronenberg has directed one of his own original screenplays since eXistenz in 1999
