Before he became mainstream, David Cronenberg, earlier in his directing career, was the king of the body horror genre. Shivers, The Brood and The Rabid, set Cronenberg on the path to direct the horror classic The Fly, but that was way back in 1986 and since then fans have hoped that he would one day return to the that kind of genre that made him really stood out from the crowd.
Now Viggo Mortensen who who worked with Cronenberg on A History Of Violence and Eastern Promises has teased that he is going back to his roots.
Here is what he said in an interview with GQ
Yes, we do have something in mind. It’s something he wrote a long time ago, and he never got it made. Now he’s refined it, and he wants to shoot it. Hopefully, it’ll be this summer we’ll be filming. I would say, without giving the story away, he’s going maybe a little bit back to his origins.
It’s disturbing and it’s good, I think. But since his origins, he’s obviously developed in terms of technique and self-assurance as a director,
Sounds like something to get most horror fans really excited about.
