David Cronenberg

David Cronenberg

Acclaimed director David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises, A History of Violence) has been swamped with offers for his first novel which at the moment is only 60 pages long and lacks any definitive direction.

Although he has been involved writing the screenplays of a number of his films, it will be the director’s first venture into the literary world.

Never one to shy away from subjects of controversy Cronenberg will no doubt have something bloody and gutsy up his sleeve for his first book.

The man himself is revealing little about the book’s subject matter. Commenting on how he was getting on he said: “It’s not like Stephen King (tiresome horror novelist) – but what it is exactly, I don’t know yet.” (What a tease! – Ed)

There is no way of telling just how long it will take before the manuscript is published or even if it will make it to the shops, but rest assured The Scribbler will keep a close eye on developments.

To get a taste for the kind of storyline and action that David Cronenberg has been attracted to in recent times click below to watch a deleted scene from ‘A History Of Violence’ narrated by the director himself:
