David Cronenberg (Spider) is directing London Fields, based on Martin Amis' 1991 novel of the same name.
The script, written by Roberta Hanley and Amis, follows a promiscuous psychic troubled by disturbing premonitions that are all the more unnerving for never being wrong. The story is set in and around a seedy London pub, where the psychic has come to meet the end her dreams have foretold: to be murdered by one of two men she meets there -- but which one?
No distributors have come aboard as yet, but discussions are taking place with several, and the film is going out to cast.
David Cronenberg was once stabbed in the shoulder by Lynn Lowry whilst on the set of Shivers. Cronenberg was 'shemping' on behalf of co-star Paul Hampton in the scene where Lynn attacks her on-screen lover.
4th Oct 04 With its fine blend of dark humour and shock horror, you will barely be able to avert your gaze from the screen; from the opening sequence on the desolate moors, to the thrilling finale in Piccadilly Circus.
