A remake of the remake of "The Fly" is planned.

Link.

The especially weird part is that David Cronenberg is in talks to direct.

What do you guys think? When I heard they were planning one, I was afraid it'd be another Platinum Dunes disappointment. But with Cronenberg attached, it might be interesting to see how he'd do it today.

I'm only interested because of Cronenberg's attachment.

Are they replacing Jeff Goldblum with Chris Noth?

Cronnenberg? Again? His version he made in the 1980s with Goldblum was pitch-perfect. He wouldn't do the sequel (which had potential, but just wasn't the same without Cronnenberg's involvement), so why would he do a remake of a remake [that had a sequel] (of a movie that had two sequels).

I suppose one approach would be to make a period science fiction horror movie, close to the original film or the 1957 novella by George Langelaan. I wouldn't mind another film about a lone scientist who tragically screws around with science he doesn't understand, as opposed to another modern update with another evil corporation as a plot element.

Cronenburg has been consistently great for me, so i'll look forward to anything he does. He hasn't demonstrated a great deal of poor judgment in his career yet IMO.

If this is TRUE then this will be very interesting to see how this turns out. Now my question is will we Actually see the fly, FLY in this movie?

Gee, I'd love to be a fly on the wall at that meeting.

No matter how weird it all is, it's Cronenberg. I'm in.

They should get that actor that plays Mohinder on Heroes to play the main character. Heroes fans should know why.
