The inimitable David Cronenberg is directing a new film about Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Based on Christopher Hampton's stage play "The Talking Cure," the story revolves around a patient named Sabina. Titled "A Dangerous Method," the film, starring Viggo Mortensen as Freud, Michael Fassbender as Jung, and Keira Knightley as Sabine, is due out next year. From AceShowbiz:
Detailing Knightley's character, director David Cronenberg recently said, "Really [Sabina] was a passionate, intelligent, very creative woman who didn't have an outlet for those things so it manifested itself as madness until she met Carl Jung. She was 18, he was about 29. They had an affair, she become his mistress." He concluded, "So it's the story of the three of them particularly and it's a really fascinating story."
