David Cronenberg to Direct "As She Climbed Across the Table" Sci-Fi Movie

Posted: June 22nd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
David Cronenberg to Direct "As She Climbed Across the Table" Sci-Fi MovieSubmit Comment
David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises, A History of Violence) has become attached to direct "As She Climbed Across the Table," a film based on a 1997 novel by Jonathan Lethem. It is being produced by Steve Zallian (writer of "Schindler's List").

The new movie will be about a man named Philip, who is in love with Alice. However, Philip is about to lose Alice, not to another man, but to literally nothing. Alice a physicist has created a hole, a doorway to nothingness, a vacuum, inside the laboratory where she and Philip work. The nothingness is referred to as "The Lack," and Alice becomes obsessed with The Lack in the same way that Philip is obsessed with Alice.

Many were hoping that Cronenberg would instead begin work on "Eastern Promises 2," since both he and Viggo Mortensen have previously expressed interest. It looks like "As She Climbed" may take priority, but it's not impossible that Mortensen could end up playing the Philip character. Stay tuned.

This actually sounds like its right up Cronenbergs alley.. Already sounds like it could have a bit of "the fly" feel to it...

Sounds cool.. The Black Community Agrees With This News Thread, Alex.

This sounds nothing like "Being John Malkovich". Unless you mean that there are people in it and something happens. In that case, it sounds more like "Sophie's Choice" to me.

Sounds like a pretty common condition for many white women. Once they go Black, they never go back :) Give it up Phill, Alice has gone to the dark side.

I'll watch anything by Cronenberg. I'm a big fan of his, hence my screen name.
