David Cronenberg Already Planning Next Movie The Shrouds, Starring Vincent Cassel As A Man Trying To Contact The Dead

New David Cronenberg movies don't come around very often, making each one into a kind of event for those on his particular wavelength. Rising from the ether every so often like some kind of profoundly disturbed Godzilla, the filmmaker seems to take a unique pleasure out of alternately delighting and repulsing the exact kind of viewer whose movie tastes are best summed up by that Sicko meme. Having movies like "Scanners," "The Fly," and the upcoming "Crimes of the Future" under his belt — the last of which the director has already warned may lead to quite a few disgusted walkouts — will probably have that effect! But just when fans may have worried that Cronenberg would take another lengthy hiatus after his next feature debuts, the film gods have seen fit to bless us with good news today.
