An official synopsis for Crimes of the Future reads: “As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations.
“With his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances.
“Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission – to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.”
While on the red carpet at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards, the singer was asked about who she’d want to play her in a movie about her life. After a pause, Lavigne said: “Like Kristen Stewart would be cool to play me in a film. She’s dope.”
Stewart was most recently nominated for an Oscar for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer.
Crimes of the Future will be released in the US on June 3. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
