Ivan and Atom: Odd Couple


Strange days for Canadian auteurs. David Cronenberg is making a movie with Tom Cruise. And Atom Egoyan is making a movie for Ivan Reitman.

It’s Egoyan’s first feature based on a script he didn’t write, and it’s also quite a departure for Reitman, best known as the man who gave us Ghostbusters. I wrote about this odd creative marriage in this week’s issue of Maclean’s. And I was on the set at the Windsor Arms hotel to shoot a video of our photo shoot. Here is the result:
