Julianne Moore, John Cusack & Sarah Gadon Join Robert Pattinson In David Cronenberg's 'Map To The Stars'

We have to admit, we were kinda worried. Last month, Rachel Weisz dropped out of David Cronenberg's brewing "Maps To The Stars," the project that would reteam him with his "Cosmopolis" lead Robert Pattinson. The plan was to shoot the movie next month, but with Cronenberg recently taking a role in "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel "The Body Artist," lensing this summer, we wondered about the status of 'Maps.' Turns out, we have nothing to worry about.

We have to admit, we were kinda worried. Last month, Rachel Weisz dropped out of David Cronenberg's brewing "Maps To The Stars," the project that would reteam him with his "Cosmopolis" lead Robert Pattinson. The plan was to shoot the movie next month, but with Cronenberg recently taking a role in "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino's adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel "The Body Artist," lensing this summer, we wondered about the status of 'Maps.' Turns out, we have nothing to worry about.

Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Sarah Gadon are all now joining the picture, which seems to be moving full steam ahead. Plot details on the movie, penned by Bruce Wagner, have been scarce, except that it will be a trenchant look at Hollywood and celebrity culture. But Deadline adds that it's also a "ghost story," which certainly raises an intrigued eyebrow. The cast is top shelf (though it seems Viggo Mortensen is no longer taking a role, or at least isn't mentioned), with Moore and Cusack working with Cronenberg for the first time. Meanwhile, it will be Gadon's third round with the Cronenberg brood, featuring in "Cosmopolis" and "A Dangerous Method" and Cronenberg Jr.'s "Antiviral."

The movie will be available to buyers next at Cannes and will start shooting in July. eOne will distribute the film in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia/New Zealand.
