Brandon Cronenberg to Direct Sci-Fi Thriller DRAGON

Movie News

In some fantastic news, it’s been revealed that Brandon Cronenberg has signed on to direct his second feature.

Following the impressive Antiviral, the son of the legendary David Cronenberg will follow that up with Dragon. As reported by Variety, Dragon will be a sci-fi thriller that’s “like an adaptation of an imagined Philip K. Dick novel” which looks at “the pleasures of space horror in a satirical and at times psychotic universe.”

The early blurb on the movie reads:

Set in the near future, Dragon envisions a society radically changed as a result of discovering ancient organic lifeforms drifting through the cosmos, whose alien biochemistry has been processed to create a hugely profitable drug that acts as an “opiate of the masses.” The film follows a captain and her crews as they hunt these “dragons” in deep space, seeking to secure a comfortable future.

Brandon Cronenberg will be co-writing the movie with Marvel Comics’ Dan Abnett, with the film expected to start shooting in mid-2018.

As ever, expect more on this as it develops.
