Rachel Weisz attached to project by ‘Jennifer’s Body’ director



Rachel Weisz, GeekHeeb’s favorite Egyptologist, will be subjected to Cronenberg-style body delight horror in the next project by “Jennifer’s Body” director Karyn Kusama, according to an interview with i09:

io9: What’s next for after Jennifer’s Body - will you stay in the supernatural, horror or genre realm?

KK: There’s a screenplay I wrote a while ago with a partner that has a sort of element of horror, although I would call it a psychological horror in the David Cronenberg tradition, that I’m tying to get made.

io9: How are you influenced by David Cronenberg?

KK: He’s a very important filmmaker to me. I’ve watched a lot of his movies with a lot of admiration. I feel like he’s somebody who early in his career found ways to marry concepts of horror and certainly elements of gore, but those elements had some sort of deeper meaning, beyond the surface of the movie.

io9: And you’re applying that to your screenplay inspired by him? Can you talk about that at all?

KK: It definitely does fall into sort of a body horror movie that deals very, very specifically with our concept of gender. I can’t really talk to you specifically about it other than to say that Rachel Weisz is attached to the film.

io9: Rachel Weisz and gender issues - I’m excited!

KK: Me too actually. Let’s hope that some day it finally gets some money.
