Rachel Weisz is the Subject of Karyn Kusama's 'Body Horror'
Karyn Kusama, director of the upcoming Megan Fox horror vehicle Jennifer's Body, chatted some with io9 about what's lined up next in her directorial pipeline. And, apparently, she'll be holding fast to the horror genre - but this as yet unnamed script is a "psychological horror in the David Cronenberg tradition." Okay, Kusama. I'll bite. "[The script] 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." Now you've got our attention! But what exactly is it about?
Oh, Rachel Weisz. Sweet, sweet, beautiful, talented, disarming Rachel Weisz - in a gory, gender-bending, body-altering horror film akin to Cronenberg's Videodrome or The Fly?! Oh my yes. To what degree will Weisz's gender be subverted? What's this film even about? Why won't Rachel Weisz return my numerous emails? These are all questions we just don't know yet. But Kusama's next project is certainly one to pay attention to. Yes? And in the meantime, you might as well catch Jennifer's Body this weekend to support her (Alex liked it), or visit one of her older films, like Girlfight (we're not going to mention the other one).
