Fox snares a director for its remake of The Fly

It’s been a while since a body horror movie ruined our appetites, so it seems as good a time as any for Fox to remake The Fly. According to Deadline, the studio is abuzz with development plans for remaking David Cronenberg’s 1986 film, which was itself a reworking of Kurt Neumann’s 1958 cinematic adaptation of George Langelaan’s short story. Cronenberg isn’t revisiting his remake, so Fox is currently in talks with J.D. Dillard. If signed, the Sleight director will also co-write the film with his collaborator Alex Theurer.

Though Deadline notes that a remake has been bandied about for some time, no stars are yet attached to the project. We could begin dream casting, though, if we could just figure out who reminds us of a young Jeff Goldblum. (Forget it, he’s, uh, one of a kind.) The Fly is the latest ’80s flick to find its way back to the story board: remakes of Overboard and Splash are also currently in development.
