Director David Cronenberg to Remake "The Fly" 


David Cronenberg is in talks with Fox to reboot "The Fly." He wrote and directed the 1986 film starring Jeff Goldblum as scientist Seth Brundle who turned into a fly after a teleportation experiment goes awry. Geena Davis co-starred as Veronica, Brundle's love interest and partner.

The 1986 version was in itself a remake of the 1958 sci-fi classic from director Kurt Neumann with Vincent Price as François Delambre, the fly.

Why is Cronenberg interested in doing a remake of his own remake of a remake? Can't Hollywood be original anymore? The only answer I can come up with is the enhanced special effects available to Cronenberg now. But all the special effects in the world do not amount to nothing without a good script and direction; Yet as an experiment to see if he can top his own film, this plan is quite intriguing and interesting.

For now, take a look at the trailer of the 1986 film and let's hope Cronenberg gives us something better!
