One thing is for sure – David Cronenberg definitely likes Don DeLillo‘s novels. All of the sudden comes an information that Cosmopolis helmer will star in an upcoming adaptation of DeLillo’s The Body Artist, together with Isabelle Huppert and Denis Lavant. Italian director Luca Guadagnino will be in charge, and the movie will have a bit shorter title – Body Art!

Guadagnino will direct the whole thing from his own script (based on the above mentioned novel of course) which centers on:

…a woman named Lauren Hartke who, grieving after her husband’s death, discovers that a stranger is living in her upstairs room.

At this moment we know that Isabelle Huppert is set to portray that lady Hartke, but unfortunately – there’s still nothing about Cronenberg & Lavant and their characters.

Anyway, let us also add that Paolo Branco is (once again) producing the whole thing, and that shooting on »
