Weisz for Kusama’s next project?

Film described as ‘Cronenbergian body horror’.

mmyrtns3031aRachel Weisz has been attached to the next project from Karyn Kusama, director of the upcoming Jennifer’s Body, according to the helmer herself.

“There’s a screenplay I wrote a while a go with a partner that has a sort of element of horror, although I would call it a psychological horror in the David Cronenberg tradition, that I’m tying to get made,” said Kusama in an interview with io9. “It 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.”

Kusama, of course, has a background in the science fiction and horror genres, with the aforementioned Jennifer’s Body as well as Aeon Flux, starring Charlize Theron. Weisz herself has also done a number of genre-associated projects, such as The Mummy 1 and 2, and The Fountain, from her fiancee Darren Aronofsky.
