Seriously now, I really don't get the despair over all the remakes of late. If they're shite then don't watch them, it's not like the originals (and original remakes) are going anywhere.
As I recall the, the 80's had a bunch of remakes of old classic 50's sci-fi/horror B-movies; The Fly, The Thing, The Blob & Invaders from Mars spring to mind and two of those actually turned out to be really good.

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

I wonder if Viggo Mortensen will be in this one.

Cronenberg has been on a roll lately (much like a fly landing in your Swiss roll ...), with both A History of Violence and Eastern Promises being among his best work. Which bodes well for him revisiting arguably his best known movie.

This is admittedly a slightly odd, even retrograde choice for him but I'm sure he has his reasons. If the 1980s version reflected fears about AIDS, then doubtless he plans to look at modern topics or fears like genetics or viral warfare in this version. And let's face it, even since The Fly, body-shock has remained a feature of his work (e.g. Existenz).
