The article reports that motion picture director David Cronenberg is attached to direct the motion picture "London Fields," based on Martin Amis' 1991 novel of the same name. Script by Roberta Hanley and Amis follows a promiscuous psychic troubled by disturbing premonitions that are all the more unnerving for never being wrong. Amis' other 1991 novel, "Dead Babies," was turned into the 2000 drama "Mood Swingers" by actor-director William Marsh. "London Fields" is being produced by production company Muse Productions. No distributors have come aboard as yet, but Muse Production is in discussions with several, and the film is going out to cast.
