David Cronenberg's 'A Dangerous Method' Acquired by Sony Pictures Classics
Film stars Michael Fassbender and Viggo Mortensen as Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud.
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the U.S. rights to David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, which stars Michael Fassbender as the psychiatric pioneer Carl Jung and Viggo Mortensen as his rival Sigmund Freud.
SPC picked up the rights to the film, which is produced by Jeremy Thomas, from the U.K.-based Hanway Films.
In the movie, Jung takes on a difficult patient, played by Keira Knightly. Christopher Hampton’s screenplay is an adaptation of his own play.
SPC released Cronenberg’s Spider in 2002 and has handled several of Thomas’ previous productions such as Brother and Young Adam.
"David Cronenberg and Jeremy Thomas have made a film that not only has an impeccable cast and crew working at the height of their talents but tells one of the most fascinating love triangles of the twentieth century,” SPC said in a statement.
