Cronenberg to remake The Fly

It may have been released nearly 25 years ago but The Fly is still considered to be one of the greatest special effects films ever made. Well for some unknown reason (money?) it’s been announced it will be getting the 21st Century remake treatment by its original director David Cronenberg.

According to The Hollywood Reporter the remake is in the early stages of development at Fox (makers of the original), and it’s unknown whether Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis will return to their roles.

The excellent original, starred Jeff Goldblum as a mad-cap scientist who transforms into a human-sized fly after a botched teleportation experiment. Geena Davis played Goldblum's sexy piece of blue-bottle fluff.
