Busy times for producer Saïd Ben Saïd and David Cronenberg
Shooting gets underway this summer on David Cronenberg’s next feature, Maps to the Stars, with Robert Pattinson. Speaking to KFTV, SBS Productions have confirmed that filming begins in July in LA and Canada.
SBS Productions’ Saïd Ben Saïd produces, alongside Martin Katz of Prospero Pictures in Toronto. Bruce Wagner is behind the screenplay: a darkly comedic take on celebrity obsession and child stardom.
The director/producer/actor triumvirate of Cronenberg, Katz and Pattinson previously worked together on 2012’s Cosmopolis. On Thursday (18 April 2013), fellow producer Saïd Ben Saïd’s most recent feature, Un Chateau en Italie, was named as one of the films in official selection at Cannes.
