20th Century Fox Planning A New Remake Of The Fly

20th Century Fox Planning A New Remake Of The Fly

Amidst all the hullabaloo surrounding about Warner Bros. planning to reboot The Matrix, you may have missed the news that 20th Century Fox are also readying a new version of The Fly, as reported by Deadline.

George Langelaan’s 1957 horror story about a scientist who finds himself slowly transforming into an insect was originally adapted for the screen in 1958. After two sequels, David Cronenberg directed a 1986 remake which became infamous for its gruesome body horror (it won an Oscar for Best Makeup), with a sequel following three years later.

J.D. Dillard, who is currently receiving accolades for his magician drama sleigh, is in talks to direct the new version. If he accepts the gig, he’s also script the film alongside his writing partner Alex Theurer.

David Cronenberg's remake is a masterpiece and Jeff Goldblum's performance was impeccable. I find no reason for another reboot, for it is the only science fiction film that has brought me to tears.

Eh I'll keep an open mind. It could be good.

Hmmm....not sure about this. Reminds me of "The Thing' Remake. Hard for me to imagine topping or equaling the 80's version.

Recently i have watched this old movie fly which was very scary to me and a bit disturbing also. I was really expecting this to be happen that it would last into a real big gigantic fly in the movie. But in real resulted in some parasite which is very awful to look at it. It has got many good compliments and also admires as per essayontime price reviews. And it was a big hit in those days.
