In a move that seems perfectly suited to the body horror aesthetic of David Cronenberg, he and Sam Raimi have teamed up for the new series “Knifeman”. It actually sounds like it could be pretty good!
Per press release, “director David Cronenberg will direct the pilot and serve as Executive Producer on its latest television series “Knifeman” which marks his first foray into television. Cronenberg has directed such movies as ‘Eastern Promises’ and ‘The Fly’.”
The show “is written by Emmy nominated writer and producer Rolin Jones (Friday Night Lights) with the story by Rolin Jones and Ron Fitzgerald (Friday Night Lights). Based on the novel by Wendy Moore. “Knifeman” follows the trials and triumphs of a radical, self-educated surgeon delivering a visceral and psychological portrait of the extraordinary and unorthodox lengths he will go to uncover the secrets of the human body. Executive Producers [are] David Cronenberg, Rolin Jones, Ron Fitzgerald and Sam Raimi, Josh Donen and Robert Zotnowski.”
It all sounds like it could be pretty cool. One note though, this is not Cronenberg’s first foray into television. He directed episodes of “Scales Of Justice”, “Friday The 13th (The Series)”, “Peep Show” and about a half dozen TV movies before this.
