David Cronenberg


The man behind the lens of 'A History of Violence' and 'Eastern Promises' is in negotiations to direct the Robert Ludlum's novel adaptation.

MGM's next political thriller project, "The Matarese Circle", is most likely to have found its director. Though nothing has been set in stone yet, David Cronenberg is currently in talks with the studio to take the part of the flick's helmer, as reported by Variety.

If the negotiations go on smoothly, the director of "Eastern Promises" will be tackling the behind the lens role using the script penned by "3:10 to Yuma" writing duo, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. He will also work with Denzel Washington who is attached to star in the film.

Based on a Robert Ludlum novel, "Matarese Circle" is set during the period of Cold War. It tells the story of two conflicting secret agents who team up to bring down an international group of killers known as the Matarese. MGM reportedly are expecting to start the production in spring 2009.
