Cronenberg’s ‘Cure’ Now ‘A Dangerous Method’, Shooting Next Month

Written by on April 14, 2010 

After losing Col. Hans Landa himself, or Christoph Waltz, David Cronenberg has landed Viggo Mortensen for the role of Sigmeund Freud in his next film. And while it was originally set to be titled The Talking Cure, after Christopher Hampton’s play of the same name, the title has also been switched, and the film will now be called A Dangerous Method.

Also starring are Michael Fassbender as famed psychiatrist Carl Jung and Keira Knightley as Sabina Spielrein, one of the first female psychoanalysts who studied under Jung and with whom she also had a sexual relationship (given that it’s a Cronenberg, expect the sex scenes to be awkward and/or disgusting, and to maybe feature body parts that have just sprouted from one character).

I am admittedly sad to see Waltz go, as having him play Freud in a Cronenberg film sounds like the best thing, well, ever, but this still has much promise. The cast is good, director is good, and the subject is very interesting. So, in short, despite the absence of Waltz, there’s still a lot to look forward to in A Dangerous Method.

A Dangerous Method starts shooting mid-May in Berlin, Vienna & Zurich. After finishing, Cronenberg will move unto Eastern Promises 2.

Are you looking forward to A Dangerous Method?
