David Cronenberg has written a sort of sequel to The Fly

10.03.2011

The last time I saw THE FLY was probably in the early nineties. It was a bit gruesome for me at a young age so I never felt the need to revisit it. I love you Jeff Goldblum but the last couple of scenes in that movie are a little much.

The first film was directed and co-written by David Cronenberg. That film was a semi-remake of the 1958 version from helmer Kurt Neumann. Both are derived from the short story by George Langelaan. In 1989, if you recall, there was a sequel with Eric Stoltz as Goldblum's grown-up son who is part human, part buggy. Cronenberg had nothing to do with that one.

A couple of years back there was a rumor that another remake of THE FLY was coming from 20th Century Fox. When Shock Til Ya Drop spoke with David Cronenberg they asked about the possibility of this happening to which the director said:

"'The Fly' is not exactly a remake, it's sort of a sequel, kinda. Yeah, that was a thing. I've written a script of that, and I don't know if that's going to really happen, but that has to do with Fox."

I wonder if Fox will let Cronenberg pursue the project. I'd rather have a "sort of" sequel than another remake.

The Alien 4 route.

They clone Seth Brundle in order to either harvest his genetic code for some sort of super soldier hybrid program, or so he can rebuild his pods, which nobody else has since been able to recreate.

The Fly (1986) is one of my all-time favorite movies. It's so perfectly written, acted, and shot.

No thanks. Don't see what can be done

I like remakes but I don't see the potential in this one The Fly was awesome and the sequel was actually really good, I don't see where they could go with a sequel anyway... and really don't think they can top it with a remake because of Goldblum's genius

Love the original..No reboot please!

Never can go wrong w/ some of the good old original David Cronenberg. And I too agree w/ the writer that a "sort-of" sequel would be much cooler than a remake/reboot.

...thankfully i went "Poop" just BEFORE reading this article so there was no invasion of privacy here. Carry On.

The "original" Cronenberg "The Fly" was a remake of the 1958 film of the same name...
