Working on a film with David Cronenberg is like going to a family reunion. He brings back people he’s worked with for decades. He’s highly regarded by many and especially those that work with him. Maps To The Stars is no exception. John Cusack (Stafford) tweeted yesterday about how David Cronenberg is fun, intense and provocative and Amanda Brugel (Victoria) also had kind words to share:
“Excuse me Ms. Brugel – Mr. Cronenburg would just like to say good bye to you…” The word “Gentleman” somehow falls short. #Grace

It’s no wonder familiar names continue to work along side this iconic director. Producer, Martin Katz, has collaborated with Cronenberg three previous times (Spider, A Dangerous Method & Cosmopolis) and the first production still from Maps To The Stars released this week was taken by still photographer, Caitlin Cronenberg, David’s daughter.
Caitlin previously worked as the still photographer for Cosmopolis and we know MTTS stars, Robert Pattinson (Cosmopolis) and Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method, Cosmopolis) have their acting history with Cronenberg as well. While IMDb has a fuller list of crew that shows more of the Cosmopolis family carrying over to Maps To The Stars (Renee Tab, Joseph Boccia), The Hollywood Reporter pointed out crew that’s been working with David for decades:
The Maps to the Stars’ creative team includes longtime Cronenberg collaborators including director of photography Peter Suschitzky, production designer Carol Spier, costume designer Denise Cronenberg, editor Ron Sanders and Oscar-winning composer Howard Shore.
They know the man, the legend, and know how to bring his vision to life efficiently and artistically. We can’t wait to see what David and Co. create for Maps To The Stars. Like every other film David Cronenberg does, it’ll be a study in cinema with a master at the helm.
