First Look: First Photos from Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method

Time for our first real glimpse at the latest film from David Cronenberg since Eastern Promises in 2007. This was originally called The Talking Cure when it was first announced, but it has since been retitled to A Dangerous Method, given that it's about psychiatrist Sigmund Freud. Viggo Mortensen stars as Freud and can be seen below. He's joined by Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung and Keira Knightley as Jung's girlfriend/patient Sabina Spielrein. This looks great already, in these photos, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Cronenberg. However, we don't know when this will hit theaters, since it still needs a distributor.
The photos seen above come from a blog called SoyPelopo82 (via SlashFilm). Just three simple shots, but at least something to whet your appetite for more from Cronenberg. The short logline for A Dangerous Method is as follows: A look at how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis. From the mind of Cronenberg, this sounds like it should be incredible to see, especially with actors this talented in the key roles. I can't wait to see more from this! I'm not sure when we'll actually get to see this, I'm guessing either Sundance or Cannes next year, but we'll certainly keep you updated. Stay tuned!
I have no interest in the subject, but Ill see it simply for Mortensen's performance and Cronenbergs direction.

I am greatly interested in this. I heard great things about Knightley in this film and Cronenberg is one of my favourite directors.

My wife just pooped. She has a master's degree in Psych, with 2 years towards her Doctorate. She loves the subject and we both think Viggo is the shit.

Friggin Michael Fassbender! <3 I'll probably watch this just for him. haha Also, can't wait for his portrayal of Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre. Super fine man, indeed. 😀
