It seems that David Cronenberg's new film has a new trio of stars. The Playlist discovered that Australian film company Hopscotch Films made an announcement on its Facebook page that Keira Knightley, and Inglourious Basterds actors Christoph Waltz and Michael Fassbender have signed on to star in The Cure.
The company was making the announcement of the acquisition of the film, which will be directed by David Cronenberg, and the Hopscotch page released a brief synopsis of the film as well.
A beautiful young woman, driven mad by her past. An ambitious doctor on a mission to succeed. An esteemed mentor with a revolutionary cure. Let the mind games begin...
The film was first announced in 2007, based off Christopher Hampton's play of the same name, which revolved around pioneering psychoanalysts Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud and their unique relationships with patient Sabina Spielrein.
No production schedule was released for the film.
