According to Deadline, the films “dive deep into a not-so-distant future where humanity is learning to adapt to its synthetic environment. This evolution moves humans beyond their natural state and into a metamorphosis, altering their biological makeup. While some embrace the limitless potential of transhumanism, others attempt to control it. Either way, the “accelerated progression syndrome” is spreading rapidly. Saul Tenser is a beloved performance artist who embraced Faster Evolution Syndrome, sprouting unexpected new organs in his body. With his partner Caprice, Tenser transformed the harvesting of these organs into a spectacle for his loyal supporters to marvel at the theater in real time. But with both the government and a strange subculture taking note, Tenser is forced to consider what would be his most shocking performance of all.
Earlier this year, frequent Cronenberg collaborator Viggo Mortensen told GQ they were preparing to shoot a secret project this summer. “It’s something he wrote a long time ago, and he never did,” the actor told the magazine. “Now he’s refined it and he wants to shoot it. Hopefully it will be this summer that we shoot. I would say, without revealing the story, that it is perhaps going back to its origins.
