Hallelujah.  I love how it mentions filming starts on 8 July 2013.  According to Screendaily:

“EXCLUSIVE: eOne closes multiple deals on David Cronenberg’s new thriller.

 eOne has closed multiple deals on David Cronenberg’s new thriller Maps to the Stars, starring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, Robert Pattinson and John Cusack.

Deals have closed with Benelux (Cineart), Poland (Monolith), Scandinavia (Mis Label), Iceland (Gmight), Switzerland (PatheAG), Portugal (Lusomundo), Turkey (Calinos), Israel (Shani), Greece (Hollywood) and Former Yugoslavia (Discovery).

Deals are set to close shortly for C.I.S., Middle East, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Hong Kong and India.

Production is scheduled to kick off on July 8 in Toronto and Los Angeles on the ghost story that also doubles as a commentary on celebrity culture in Los Angeles. Bruce Wagner wrote the screenplay.

eOne will directly distribute the film in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. {Note:  I contacted Hopscotch earlier last week to see if they were involved since they are an eOne company, but was told it’s still too early to confirm their involvement. We shall keep you posted.)

eOne and Prospero Pictures are co-financing and Katz produces with SBS Productions’ Saïd Ben Saïd.”


Not long now people.

    WOOOOOOOOHOOOO! David & Rob back together. Can’t wait to see how Rob connects with Cusack & Moore. Am I right in saying that Robs character is in virtually every scene? I think I saw that somewhere.
    Thanks for keeping us posted girls. Impatient about hearing something from hopscotch!

    I don’t think so @Sare from what I recall he plays either a paparazzi or a limo driver. That’s probably Mission Blacklist re every scene.

    I contacted Hopscotch because eOne bought them in 2011, but it’s early days and so hopefully I’ll know soon.

    @Sue from what I can gather there’s no director attached to the film. It does say principal photography late summer and summer 2014 release, but we wait in anticipation for more concrete news 🙁

    @Maria ~ desperately keeping my fingers crossed for more concrete news re MB, I really would love to see Rob play (another) Eric.
