What? Ya, you read that right, director David Cronenberg is preparing to remake the iconic 1986 Sci-Fi horror film “The Fly” that starred Jeff Goldblum (who is still alive BTW) and Geena Davis.
Also involved is Twentieth Century Fox who will back the reboot, a reboot which by all means is an oddity considering Cronenberg wrote and directed the original movie and has even been vocal about his intention to never be involved in remaking it… Of course, Cronenberg’s “The Fly,” was essentially a rename of Kurt Neumann’s 1958 classic of the same name.
The story follows Seth Burndle, a scientist whose DNA becomes scrambled with that of a fly after his teleportation experiment goes horribly wrong. As a result, he slowly becomes mutated and transforms into a fly monster.
