Welp, someone is remaking David Cronenberg's The Fly, which was itself a remake of a 1958 sci-fi film. Curious who would be so daring as to remake David Cronenberg's 1986 classic? David Cronenberg is remaking David Cronenberg's 1986 classic, The Fly:
The auteur is in talks to develop a reboot of the 1986 classic with Fox, the studio that released that film, writing and potentially directing the new pic.
The move marks an about-face for the Canadian director, who in the past has said he did not want to be involved on a remake of the film. Cronenberg did work on an opera version of "The Fly" that was staged first in Paris and then in Los Angeles.
I suppose this will do until I figure out how to get the remake I really want: The Metamorphosis, re-written by a reanimated Franz Kafka (updated with advanced modern punctuation). That would just be tops.
