In a world where everything just short of the kitchen sink is being remade by Hollywood, you really have to wonder why a major studio would put the kibosh on another remake/sequel from one of the top directors working in the field who actually wants to work on the project. Sadly, that’s exactly what has happened.
Last month David Cronenberg announced that he’d completed a script for a new version of The Fly which was more a sequel than a remake and that it was under consideration at 20th Century Fox.
Now according to IndieWire Cronenberg has broken the news that the studio wasn’t so keen on his new take, telling them, “I wrote a script, and at the moment Fox is not wanting to do the project.”
I mean why should they, right? There are dozens of other foreign films and odd cult films in the works. Sigh.
