Way to maneuver yourself into the mainstream, Mr. Cronenberg! You've come a long way since your super bizarre film Naked Lunch.
As we mentioned before, the film is based on a Don DeLillo novel, and the story is about "financial wunderkind" Eric Packer who "risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day." His actions also put his life at risk, in this film which takes place in a "slightly futuristic metropolis."
Knightley would star as Eric Packer/R-Patz's love interest in the film.
According to IMDB, Knightley is also starring in director Cronenberg's upcoming Sigmund Freud/Carl Jung film A Dangerous Method, so we're thinking there's a good chance she'll make her way into this film as well.
Would U like to see Keira Knightley collaborate with Cronen-Patz?
