Brandon Cronenberg’s upcoming drama Infinity Pool, about an all-inclusive holiday in an exotic luxury resort that takes a sinister turn, is planned to film in Croatia and Hungary in Spring 2021.

Based on an original screenplay written by Cronenberg, the son of the acclaimed director David Cronenberg, Infinity Pool centres on uninspired writer and his wife who are befriended by a glamorous couple, while on an all-inclusive vacation on a picturesque island. The couples head off on a forbidden picnic in the island’s off-limits countryside that takes a sinister turn.

The Canada-Hungary-France co-production is being produced by Karen Harnisch and Andrew Cividino at Toronto-based Film Forge Productions, and Rob Cotterill, Cronenberg’s long-time collaborator. Daniel Kresmery at Hungary-based Hero Squared will serve as the film’s Hungarian co-producer, and his partner Jonathan Halperyn as an executive producer.

Paris-based Celluloid Dreams is a co-production partner and the film’s international sales agent.

“Brandon’s script confronts our deepest existential fears while piquing us with wicked social satire about the entitled behaving very badly in an exotic, uncanny location,” said Celluloid Dreams founder and president Hengameh Panahi and vice president Charlotte Mickie.

Hungary and Croatia are proving very popular shooting locations, with the former hosting a number of big projects in recent months, including Legendary Entertainment/Warner Bros’ Dune, Lionsgate’s The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, starring Nicolas Cage, Amazon Studios’ Birds of Paradise, Amblin’s comedy film Distant and Showtimes’ new series Halo.

Hungary is also currently hosting eOne’s Mrs Harris Goes to Paris, starring Isabelle Huppert and Lesley Manville, another project co-produced by Hero Squared. The production is doubling Budapest for Paris and London.
