Julianne Moore, John Cusack and Sarah Gadon Join 'Maps To The Stars' - Production Starts in July

Canadian giant Entertainment One will team with Martin Katz’s Prospero Pictures to back David Cronenberg’s upcoming ensemble thriller Maps To The Stars. Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon are to star in the ghost story that’s described as a scathing attack on celebrity-obsessed LA. The script is by Wild Palms‘ Bruce Wagner.

EOne will also handle worldwide sales, which it plans to launch in Cannes next month, and distribute in the U.S., Canada, the UK and Australia/NZ. Production starts in July in Toronto and LA. This is Cronenberg and Katz’s fourth collaboration. Katz and SBS Films’ Saïd Ben Saïd are producing. Sentient Entertainment’s Renee Tab, Cronenberg’s manager, will exec produce. EOne’s Benedict Carver is also exec producing and will oversee for the studio. Integral Films’ Alfred Hurmer is co-producing.

Deadline

Here's what Entertainment One's Patrice Theroux had to say in a statement.
"We're thrilled to secure worldwide sales rights for Maps to the Stars and add it to the lineup in four of our core territories. David is a visionary who continues to attract top talent with his unique style and the masterful quality of his filmmaking. With this all-star cast Maps to the Stars is a very exciting international project and we're looking forward to introducing the project in Cannes."
Prospero Pictures' Martin Katz also released his own statement.
"Maps to the Stars marks Prospero's fourth collaboration with David over the past decade and together with our partners, we are delighted to be launching this audacious new film this year, particularly with eOne. The eOne team just gets it and continues to showcase films at the highest levels on the international stage."

I hope Rob will still be able to do this film, I wish we new when Mission Blacklist was going to start filming.

Hopefully Twmmy, Viggo and Rob will reunite in another Cronenberg film, I am crossing my fingers for that one to occur. So looking forward to this film and it is actually all about.

I am so excited for this film but Sarah Gadon ugh I cannot tolerate that baby voice thing she does, oh Rob the things I do for you. I'm gonna have to sit and watch another film listening to her voice and getting annoyed.
