Cronenberg, DeLillo, Branco reteam for ‘Body Art’

Guadagnino to direct for Alfama Films

MADRID

The “Cosmopolis” team — director-actor David Cronenberg, novelist Don DeLillo and producer Paolo Branco — are re-uniting on “Body Art,” helmed by Italy’s Luca Guadagnino.

Cronenberg will co-star alongside Isabelle Huppert and Denis Lavant in the adaptation of DeLillo’s “The Body Artist.”

Branco’s Paris-based Alfama Films is producing, has French distribution rights and will handle international sales.

Written by Guadagnino, “Body Art” stars Huppert as a grieving widow who discovers that a stranger is living in her upstairs room. Shooting is scheduled for summer.

Alfama will initiate pre-sales at the European Film Market in Berlin next month.

Alfama produced Cronenberg-directed Cannes Competition player “Cosmopolis.”

Guadagnino directed Italian box office hit “Melissa P.,” but broke through to international attention with the Italo-language, period love story “I Am Love,” starring Tilda Swinton.

“Body Art” joins Alfama’s Berlin slate that includes John Malkovich starrer “The Giacomo Variations,” from Austria’s Michael Sturminger, and “Un homme a part,” about a man who inherits his mother’s healing powers, helmed by Gaul’s Francois Dupeyron (“The Officers’ Ward,” “Monsieur Ibrahim”).
