The Times is thrilled to announce an in-depth interview with prolific screenwriter and actor, Brandon Cronenberg. This weekend, the two will meet at the annual Tribeca Film Festival to discuss the upcoming movie adaptation of his memoir, “The Dead Girl Writer.”

It’s the 12th book that Cronenberg has written, his father, David Cronenberg, once described as “the hardest, the most difficult and the longest job, because it just takes forever.” The project was met with decades of financial turmoil, owing mostly to the financial collapse of the publishing industry and audiovisual rights battles. In 2011, Netflix paid an estimated $300,000 for three-and-a-half years of the rights to “The Dead Girl Writer,” securing the distribution rights for the first time for a Cronenberg film. The film is currently filming in Montreal, ahead of a May release.

“The Dead Girl Writer” is an opportunity for such a major cultural figure to expose his writing process to a larger audience. It will also provide an outlet for fans to hear the family’s story. The book’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages have more than 123,000 followers, and David’s films “Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence” and “Crash” are still airing on HBO.

Maddie Garrett is the Story Editor for the Times Magazine.
