David Cronenberg, who received a career tribute just in time to promote “A Dangerous Method,” told The Playlist that he was skipping out on the rest of awards season so he could spend the time finishing “Cosmopolis.”
“This isn’t a criticism, but when you’re making movies and being creative, you’re not making movies to fit in awards season,” he said. “It’s a parallel universe, and sometimes those universes kind of intersect, but I’m going to run away and hide from all that. I’m going to Paris, and I won’t be in the awards, I’ll be happily in my new movie.”
Cronenberg said he’s finishing the sound mix in France because the film is financed as a Canada-France co-production. “The movie will be done sometime in January, but it won’t be released for about a year, this time next year,” he projected. “Robert Pattinson is brilliant in it.” No word whether or not Cronenberg means the film won’t be released theatrically or hit the festival circuit until next fall is unclear, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
