Viggo Mortensen and David Cronenberg

Check out this video from the "In Conversation" series from TIFF Bell Lightbox, where Canuck auteur David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen discuss their working relationship, which has now spanned three films together ("A History of Violence," "Eastern Promises" and "A Dangerous Method").

In the video, the two talk about the perceived "control" in Cronenberg's films. Cronenberg rebuffs this notion, saying he's an "anti-storyboard" person; Mortensen agrees, saying the reason he enjoys working with Cronenberg is that before a film the director "plans everything, he tries to think of it from every angle, so that when [he] gets to the set [he] can throw it all away and see what happens."

Cronenberg's next project is actually a non-Mortensen one: "Map to the Stars," starring Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Julianne Moore, Carrie Fisher and John Cusack. It could very well land at Cannes.
