David Cronenberg's newest film, Maps to the Stars, has begun its 30-day shoot in L.A. and Toronto, according to The Wrap.
Re-teaming with Robert Pattinson once more (after the NYC-set Cosmopolis), Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars is, according to IMDb, a "complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture". So another cerebral drama, then?
The film will also star John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon.
Here's some more info from the film's fansite:
A contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, story follows the Weiss family, which is led by Stafford (Cusack), a psychotherapist and life coach who made his fortune with self-help books. His wife (Williams) is the overbearing mother-manager of their 13-year-old son (Bird), a TV star recently out of drug rehab. Their estranged daughter (Wasikowska) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and befriended a limo driver (Pattinson) who is also an aspiring actor.
One of Stafford's celebrity clients is Havana (Moore), an actress with an unusual new assistant. Havana’s dream of reprising her dead mother’s (Gadon) starring role from the 1960s slowly crumbles while ghosts, death and all manner of vices collide.
The film is set for a 2014 release; we'll keep you posted on the actual date. In the meantime answer us this: Do you think R-Patz is Cronenberg's new best pal? Or rather, his new go-to leading actor?
The actor and director's previous collaboration: 'Cosmopolis' (2012).
