Even though the Cannes Film Festival described David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” as a satire of Hollywood a la Robert Altman’s “The Player,” the filmmaker has a less ironic view of the material. “This is not a satire, I’m really just observing,” Cronenberg told Total Film recently. “I feel like a scientist or a researcher. That's the most honest, neutral way of looking at things. I'm not angry at Hollywood. I don't have a statement to make about Hollywood."

Maps To The Stars

Even though the Cannes Film Festival described David Cronenberg’s “Maps To The Stars” as a satire of Hollywood a la Robert Altman’s “The Player,” the filmmaker has a less ironic view of the material. “This is not a satire, I’m really just observing,” Cronenberg told Total Film recently. “I feel like a scientist or a researcher. That's the most honest, neutral way of looking at things. I'm not angry at Hollywood. I don't have a statement to make about Hollywood."

While there’s no official U.S. release date for the film yet (it’s a good bet that it’ll be at the Toronto International Film Festival and then get a North American debut after that), internationally things are a bit different. The film is already out in France, Italy, Switzerland and Germany, the Netherlands and more are getting the film in late September (it’s also a decent bet that eOne will release it here around the same time or early October). In fact, the film is even arriving in France on Blu-Ray and DVD in September too (if you had to see at as early as possible, you could pre-order it from Amazon France). Those DVD covers have been released as have a few new photos from the movie which you can see below.

The Total Film interview also notes that Cronenberg was asked to direct “Star Wars: Return of The Jedi” (which you’ve probably heard before), “Top Gun” and “Flash Dance” (can you imagine?) "I've had meetings with studio executives that you wouldn't believe If I told you," he said. "You'd think I was making it up. You would think it was an example of absurdist theater."

Also remember those reports of Viggo Mortensen being in the cast? They’re true. Cronenberg wanted him for the role of the massage therapist that eventually went to John Cusack (Total Film say he had to bow out because of scheduling conflicts). “Maps To The Stars” features Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon and Evan Bird. New photos and DVD covers below.
