David Cronenberg to Co-Star in Luca Guadagnino’s Adaptation of Don DeLillo’s BODY ART

     January 29, 2013

Director David Cronenberg occasionally steps out in front of the camera, and he has 26 acting credits including roles in Jason X and The Stupids.  According to Yahoo! Movies, he’ll be working with slightly more elevated material by joining the adaptation of Don DeLillo‘s Body Art.  Directed by Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love), Isabelle Huppert stars as “an actress/performer of sorts grieving over a lost lover who encounters a mysterious stranger living in her house (all of which may or may not be literally happening).”  The film also stars Denis Lavant, who wowed audiences with his excellent performance(s) in Holy Motors.

This is the second pairing of Cronenberg and DeLillo.  Cronenberg’s most recent film was an adaptation of DeLillo’s 2003 novel, Cosmopolis.  It looks like Cronenberg’s next directing project will be Maps to the Stars, especially since Eastern Promises 2 and a remake of The Fly are now kaput.
