Brandon Cronenberg, son of a certain David, is in the process of filming his first ever full length feature film. After making two short videos, Brandon is now ready to make his mark, and from the looks of it he will easily follow in his Father’s footsteps. Antiviral is currently filming in Toronto, and so far all we have on this is the first ever still and a really interesting and freakish sounding synopsis. This is gonna be something very special indeed, I can feel it!
Antiviral stars Malcolm McDowell, Sarah Gadon, Caleb Landry Jones, Douglas Smith, James Cade and Nicholas Campbell. Brandon also wrote the film, and here is the synopsis:
Syd March is an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. Biological communion – for a price. Syd also supplies illegal samples of these viruses to piracy groups, smuggling them from the clinic in his own body. When he becomes infected with the disease that kills super sensation Hannah Geist, Syd becomes a target for collectors and rabid fans. He must unravel the mystery surrounding her death before he suffers the same fate.
