L.A. and all of its industry deviants are the latest subjects to go under director David Cronenberg’s microscope in Maps to the Stars.
The dark satire stars Mia Wasikowska as Agatha Weiss, a sulky girl with a troubled past and a host of personality disorders aiming to make it as actress Havana Segrand’s (Julianne Moore) personal assistant. But, as eOne Films’ first international trailer reveals, Agatha may also have some sinister motives surrounding her estranged family. Her brother, Benjie (Evan Bird), is a drug-addled child star who her mother (Olivia Williams) manages, while her father (John Cusack) writes self-help books. Robert Pattinson plays a limo driver with acting dreams. Naturally.
“It’s very funny. It’s very, very dark,” Pattinson told EW of the script nearly two years ago.

Maps to the Stars will be released sometime in 2014.
