‘Possessor’ Director Brandon Cronenberg Turning J.G. Ballard Novel ‘Super-Cannes’ Into Limited Series

Brandon Cronenberg is following in his father’s footsteps and adapting a J.G. Ballard novel. Cronenberg’s dad David helmed the brilliant, disturbing car crash sex movie Crash, based on a Ballard novel of the same name, and now Brandon is going to turn Ballard’s book Super-Cannes into a limited series. The story is set in a multinational business park that “is a virtual city-state in itself, built for the most elite high-tech industries.” If you’re thinking, “Hey, that sounds a little like Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise!”, that’s because that, too, is based on a J.G. Ballard novel.
