David Cronenberg's latest film, MAPS TO THE STARS, opens this year but it will not be the director's only project in 2014. On top of that film starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, and John Cusack, Cronenberg will also make his debut as an author with his first novel, CONSUMED.

Due to be released in the fall, CONSUMED will take Cronenberg fans back to his trademark body horror in a sprawling novel that has already been lauded by the director's recent collaborator, Viggo Mortensen. On top of a very detailed synopsis for the book, a video trailer has been released as well.

Keep in mind that this is the trailer for a Cronenberg project so you should be warned that it is very NSFW and includes questionable language and constant nudity. So, if you work in a liberal office, feel free to continue past the synopsis below.

David Cronenberg's CONSUMED is set for release on September 2, 2014. Click here to pre-order your copy.

The exhilarating debut novel by iconic filmmaker David Cronenberg: the story of two journalists whose entanglement in a French philosopher’s death becomes a surreal journey into global conspiracy.

Stylish and camera-obsessed, Naomi and Nathan thrive on the yellow journalism of the social-media age. They are lovers and competitors—nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows.

Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Célestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Célestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Aristide has disappeared. Police suspect him of killing her and consuming parts of her body. With the help of an eccentric graduate student named Hervé Blomqvist, Naomi sets off in pursuit of Aristide. As she delves deeper into Célestine and Aristide's lives, disturbing details emerge about their sex life—which included trysts with Hervé and others. Can Naomi trust Hervé to help her?

Nathan, meanwhile, is in Budapest photographing the controversial work of an unlicensed surgeon named Zoltán Molnár, once sought by Interpol for organ trafficking. After sleeping with one of Molnár’s patients, Nathan contracts a rare STD called Roiphe’s. Nathan then travels to Toronto, determined to meet the man who discovered the syndrome. Dr. Barry Roiphe, Nathan learns, now studies his own adult daughter, whose bizarre behavior masks a devastating secret.

These parallel narratives become entwined in a gripping, dreamlike plot that involves geopolitics, 3-D printing, North Korea, the Cannes Film Festival, cancer, and, in an incredible number of varieties, sex. Consumed is an exuberant, provocative debut novel from one of the world’s leading film directors.

Will see anything he attaches his name to. The guy is a genius.

A History of Violence is still one of the best films I've ever seen.
