David CronenbergAlthough Bruce Beresford was originally tapped to helm the adaptation of Giorgio Faletti's novel, I Kill, according to the Italian website BadTaste.it, David Cronenberg has now stepped into command. The novel, which is 700 pages and sold more than 5 million copies worldwide, revolves around a caller who declares on live radio that he's about to commit a crime. That same night, a high profile couple is murdered; their faces removed to make masks. Gee, I'm not sure what's more disturbing - that premise or Cronenberg himself? Lining up as a co-production between Italy, the U.S. and other European countries, the script has already been written by Davide Ferrario and so it appears as if everyone is just waiting for Cronenberg to feel good and ready. Though I'm a Cronenberg fan, I've never read the novel. So I'd be curious to hear from those who did whether or not they feel this is good material for the often bizarre director? Oh, and if you know how to read Italian, then you can check out the original article here.
