David Cronenberg's MAPS TO THE STARS has been kept tightly under wraps for a while now but we've finally got a full synopsis to share with you guys that reveals just what to expect from Cronenberg's ghost tale and it sounds very cool. Have a look:
A contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society, the 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.
Sounds like Cronenberg has one hell of a flick headed our way! According to TheWrap, filming has started for his 30-day shoot which will run through August in Toronto and L.A. Entertainment One and Prospero Pictures are co-financing the Los Angeles-set movie, which stars John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska (pictured below), Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, Evan Bird and Pattinson.
