His films may be freaky and funky and may not appeal to the average Joe Moviegoer, but stars line up to work with David Cronenberg. Simply, with unique stories usually married with inventive visuals, the filmmaker makes the kinds of movies few get the chance to do in Hollywood and so it comes as no surprise that his upcoming "Maps To The Stars" is lining up talent left and right.

The latest to come aboard on is Mia Wasikowska ("Stoker," "Lawless," "The Kids Are All Right") with Olivia Williams (Miss Cross!) and Evan Bird (who him?) also signing up. They join Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Sarah Gadon in the Bruce Wagner-penned movie that is both a skewering Hollywood and celebrity culture and a ghost story.  While plot details have pretty much been kept secret, THR does reveal that "Bird will play a troubled, drug-addicted child star, while Williams will play his manipulative mother, and Wasikowska his disfigured, schizophrenic, fame-obsessed sister." Drugs, disfigurement, manipulation? Yep, that's Cronenberg.

eOne will distribute the film in the U.S., Canada, UK and Australia/New Zealand with the movie showing its wares at Cannes next week, where we presume more details will be revealed.

    So jazzed for this ... I love Cronenberg's female choices, Julianne, Sarah, Mia, Olivia -- damn! Plus I thought Pattison was very good in Cosmopolis so I don't care about all the naysayers.
