Brandon Cronenberg’s first feature, Antiviral, has been picked up by IFC Midnight to distribute (and what have you) in the U.S., according to The Hollywood Reporter. Brandon Cronenberg is, of course, the son of David Cronenberg, the acclaimed director of The Fly and A History Of Violence.

Antiviral premiered at Cannes and created positive buzz around a story based in a clinic that sells viruses from sick celebrities to their die hard fans. The flick stars Caleb Landry Jones (Banshee in X-men: First Class and “boy on bike” in No Country For Old Men) and horror staple, Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Entourage). The premise sounds nice and twisted, and I’m excited to see it. »
