The above headline kind of makes our heads hurt a little. Just a little. Two questions beckon … Why remake a remake? and If you’re going to remake a remake, who better than the director of the original remake to remake his own remake into a brand new remake? Okay. I’m gonna need some Advil, stat!
According to THR’s Risky Biz Blog, “David Cronenberg is returning to The Fly. The auteur will develop a reboot of the 1986 classic with Fox, the studio that released that film, directing and potentially writing 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.
Risky Biz indeed! Look for more on this odd turn of events soon. In the interim check out the trailer for, well, the original remake that’s prepping to be remade. Whoa.
