Director David Cronenberg is working on a Dangerous Method, an upcoming drama movie that wants to show how the intense relationship between Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud gives birth to psychoanalysis. The film is starring Michael Fassbender, Viggo Mortensen and Keira Knightley, respectively, as Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud and Sabina Spielrein.

Here’s a first look at Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud and Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung:(Click on a picture to enlarge it.)
“On the eve of WWII, Zurich and Vienna are the setting for a dark tale of sexual and intellectual discovery. Drawn from true-life events, the film takes a glimpse into the turbulent relationships between fledgling psychiatrist Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), his mentor Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), and Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), the troubled but beautiful young woman who comes between them. Into the mix comes Otto Gross (Vincent Cassel), a debauched patient who is determined to push the boundaries.”
Actor Michael Fassbender does look like Carl Jung, but can’t say as much for Viggor Mortensen:
The Dangerous Method Movie should be released in 2011.
