Production recently started on David Cronenberg‘s A Dangerous Method, his biopic of sorts on Sigmund Freud, the famed psychologist. While it was originally slated to star Christoph Waltz as Freud, he was replaced by (now a Cronenberg mainstay) Viggo Mortensen. The lead opposite him is Michael Fassbender, who is playing Freud’s apprentice Carl Jung. Also in the film is Keira Knightley as Sabina, who eventually became a lover of Jung’s.

What else is there to say, besides that I like what I see? I’m confident in both leads to deliver strong work, even though, as I’ve originally said, I would have liked to have seen Waltz in the role of Freud more, though Mortensen, of course, remains a good choice. Fassbender is a great actor. His work in Inglourious Basterds is solid and his lead work in Hunger is astounding. I like having him in a big role. Count me excited.
What do you think of these photos and of the project in general?
