David Cronenberg's upcoming sci-fi, horror movie ‘Crimes of the Future’ has officially wrapped up filming this Friday in Athens, Greece. The shoot which began on August 2nd was only 40-days long.
The film dives into the near future in which humanity is learning to adapt to its synthetic environment. This evolution pushes humans beyond their natural state and into a metamorphosis known as "Accelerated Evolution Syndrome," which changes their biological makeup. While some welcome “transhumanism's” boundless potential, others seek to police it.
The film cast includes The Lord of The Rings trilogy star Viggo Mortensen, who is playing Saul Tenser. The lead cast also includes Léa Seydoux as Caprice, Kristen Stewart, Scott Speedman as Lang Daughtery, Welket Bungué, Don McKellar, Lihi Kornowski, Tanaya Beatty, Yorgos Karamihos, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos, and Nadia Litz.
The film is produced by Robert Lantos (“Barney’s Version,” “Eastern Promises”), and reunites Viggo Mortensen with David Cronenberg, who last collaborated on “A Dangerous Method” (2011) with Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley. Cronenberg has also written the screenplay of this film.
The film will be distributed in the United States by Neon. MK2/Mile End (Canada), Metropolitan (France), Weltkino (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland), The Searchers (Benelux), Argonauts Productions (Greece), Front Row (Middle East), Capella (CIS/the Baltic States), and Moviecloud have all signed new distribution deals (Taiwan). Rocket Science, a British sales agent, is in charge of international sales.
Panos Papahadzis is the producer for Argonauts Productions in Athens, while Steve Solomos is a co-producer. Joe Iacono, Thorsten Schumacher, Peter Touche, Christelle Conan, Aida Tannyan, Victor Loewy, and Victor Hadida are among the executive producers.
