Fox to Remake “The Fly”… Wait, Cronenberg’s Involved?

Risky Biz Blog is reporting that Fox is considering a remake of the 1986 movie, “The Fly.”  (Which, of course, was based {albeit loosely,} on a 1958 movie starring Vincent Price.)  Originally, the report says, David Cronenberg was not interested in coming back… That is, until he saw what could be done with CGI.

The story is about a scientist who develops a teleportation device, while romancing a magazine reporter.  However, while testing the machine himself, a fly gets into the device and he is melded with a fly.  And then things get creepy.

Cronenberg will be helping develop the project and may even write the damn thing.
