What more do you need to know?
There are but a few directors who excite me and Cronenberg is one of them - I gravitate toward his dark, violent, gritty worlds and I love the actors with whom he journeys. Recently he seems fascinated by Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel and who can argue with their appeal? (Nobody. The correct answer here is nobody.) Both men appeared in various states of undress (Oh, did I forget to mention Cronenberg’s delightful habit of presenting actors in various states of undress? Do add that to his appeal.) in Eastern Promises and both are slated to appear in that film’s sequel. (I’m hoping for porn.) But for right now, we’ll have to content ourselves with a few photos from his upcoming meditation on Sigmund Freud (Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender) and the birth of psychoanalysis. Keira Knightley joins the boys as a patient with whom Jung has an affair; Vincent Cassel plays another patient who “pushes boundaries”. (Yes, I would like some of that too please.)
Spanish website soypelopo82 posted these gorgeous shots:
I’m going to ignore Keira Knightley altogether and focus on the idea of Viggo as my therapist; we’ll discuss my sexual dreams and see where it goes from there.
A Dangerous Method is scheduled for a 2011 release.
