First official photos from David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method appear online

Oct. 19, 2010by: George Merchan

One of my most anticipated films of next year is David Cronenberg's A DANGEROUS METHOD. For one, it's David f*cking Cronenberg (EASTERN PROMISES, THE FLY). Two, it's got a pretty incredible trio of actors going at it with Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud, Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung, and the lovely Keira Knightley as hysteric patient Sabina, the woman that comes between them. And finally three, there's a little something of Cronenberg's DEAD RINGERS (one my favorites of his) in the very subject matter of the story which makes it immensely interesting to me.

So basically, I want a trailer NOW.

Here you'll see three new images that have appeared depicting our three principal characters. Knightley's looking good in a very disheveled sort of way. Click the pics to get a bigger look.

A DANGEROUS METHOD, currently in post, is due out sometime next year.

A brief outline of Christopher Hampton's The Talking Cure, from which the film is based (via Amazon): Overshadowed by portents of the coming wars, Zurich and Vienna are the setting for this tale of emotional vicissitude and intellectual debate. The Talking Cure is an intimate picture of the birth of psychoanalysis and of two intense and inextricably interwoven relationships. Carl Jung uses Sigmund Freuds talking cure on Sabina, a young Russian hysteric with whom he will fall in love. Impressed with Jungs results, Freud anoints him his successor, but when Jung develops his own theories they part ways. Sensitive and intelligent, The Talking Cure illuminates the origins of one of the twentieth centurys most influential schools of thought.

The Fly. Jeff Goldblum was perfect and the Brundlefly is my favorite creature design. I want to be Brundlefly for Halloween so I could scare children by vomiting on their candy!

A History of Violence. I love it because it's so normal and so real that something like that could really happen and it's so far off from his other work yet it's still totally Cronenberg.

TOo bad this movie will be too intellectually involved for the common jack-ass mentally deficient audience and will do poorly.

I guess I've seen about 50% or less of his output, but I think it'd be hard to top Dead Ringers. Second fave is The Fly.

Can't wait

Shame that Waltz pulled out of the role as Freud but Viggo is a great substitute, he certainly looks the part.

Favourite Cronenberg? Dead Ringers followed by The Naked Lunch, The Fly, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, The Dead Zone, Crash, Videodrome, Spider... so basically the man's whole backcatalogue
