Naomi Watts joins Cronenberg film
Naomi Watts is set to star in the next David Cronenberg movie called Eastern Promises and also starring Viggo Mortensen. Interestingly the script was written by Steve Knight who also write Dirty Pretty Things.
In the film, a 14-year-old girl dies on Christmas while giving birth in a London hospital. Watts plays a midwife whose search for the girl's family takes her to London's shady Russian crime community and to a Russian crime boss (Mortensen) who is not what he seems.
The blurb comes from and sounds surprisingly normal once again for Cronenberg. Could this be a reflection of the success from A History of Violence? It looks like another promising tale, and a great on screen pairing.
