The Fly

Sure, the word remake tends to make people cringe, but with the right people behind it, said remake could be very good. That takes us to a remake of The Fly. According to new reports, a new version of the film is on the way from Sleight director J.D. Dillard and his writing partner Alex Theurer. More on the story below.

Deadline says Dillard will develop a new script with his writing partner Theurer. The new film would fly under the 20th Century Fox banner. Apparently, a remake was in the works over at the studio, and it was only a matter of time before news of it came about.

David Cronenberg Has Written A Sequel To ‘The Fly’

The Fly (1986) logo

While at the New York Film Festival for the premiere of his latest film, A Dangerous Method, filmmaker David Cronenberg took the time to debunk some rumors in an interview, including the long-standing one that he was looking to direct an English language remake of the 2007 Spanish sci-fi thriller Timecrimes. But while discussing the rumor that he was possibly writing and directing a reboot of The Fly, the 1958 sci-fi horror film he successfully remade in 1986 with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis in the leads, Cronenberg dropped an interesting little nugget about his involvement with that project.

The Fly

The bad news is that David Cronenberg‘s 1986 horror classic The Fly will be run through the gauntlet and given the remake treatment by Fox. The good news though, is that Cronenberg himself will be handling the directing duties here, and possibly even writing the script.

The ’86 film we’re all familiar with was also a remake of the original 1958 film of the same name, so this is no sacred desecration, either. The movies tell the story of a scientist (Jeff Goldblum) who creates two vessels that will transport any object from one to the other, which if successful, would mean the creation of teleportation. While testing out his massive breakthrough, a small fly enters the vessel with him un-noticed, and the system becomes confused at the second life form. To fix this problem, it takes both the scientist and the fly’s genetic particles, and combines them. Over a period of time, he slowly transforms into a hideous and horrific human/fly hybrid and begins taking desperate measures to try and fix himself.

Dragon*Con ’09 Videos: GoD Interviews Female Green Lantern, An Inventor & Gets A Lesson In Goth

Geeks of Doom Invades Dragon Con 2009

As you may have noticed, our video team on the scene (I just made that up — gold star for me), Doug E. Karate and Rob E.Danger did a fantastic job of finding interesting things and people at Dragon*Con 2009 and showcasing them for all who didn’t attend to see.

This time around we have three pretty epic videos for you to enjoy — two interviews, and even an in-depth lesson in the Gothic culture. The first chat is with a woman talks about how she fell in love with The Green Lantern while watching the cartoons in Spanish growing up, and who even attended the convention dressed as a Lantern herself. Next up, you’ll meet a real, live inventor who brought along one of his creations. I can’t honestly tell you what it is or what it does, but it does throws a bunch of random phrases at you. The contraption is rather big and hangs around our new friend’s neck as he strolls. It actually kind of looks like an ’80s computer and a calculator had a romantic romp inside Jeff Goldblum’s The Fly machine, and then was teleported via the ship from Galaxy Quest, resulting in some form of inside-out electronic device.

After you check those out, prepare to take notes, as a couple of young kids will shatter all that you think you know about what Goth really is and what it means. If you’re like me, all you have to go on is what you’ve seen on South Park (Conformist!), and a little learnin’ will do help a lot. You’ll learn about what music they listen to, which ranges from exactly what you might expect to…bluegrass? You’ll discover that not all Gothic kids these days are total Satan groupies, and that some are actually Goth-Christian. And yes, you shall find out that there is in fact many “sub-species” to the overall Goth style, including the more bright and vivid Cyber-Goths, the Lolita Goths, and — wait for it — the confusing and highly contradictory Preppy Goth!

Click on over to see the videos. You know your curiosities have moved beyond temptation to pure necessity.
