New Cronenberg Movie to Focus on Sex Trafficking

David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen will team up again after making last year's A History of Violence to direct and star (respectively) in the new thriller "Eastern Promises" produced by Focus Features and BBC Films.

According to the industry trade papers, the London-set drama begins with a Russian girl who dies in childbirth. A nurse investigating her death soon discovers the girl was mixed up in sex trafficking and with the Russian mob.

The film has been announced and is set to be released in 2008.
