The directing great lends some words to what we could've seen from another FLY.
Last year brought news that David Cronenberg had penned a sort-of remake to one of his greatest titles, the Jeff Glodblum-starring THE FLY. Sadly, soon after the possibility of it moving forward fell apart when Fox and Cronenberg couldn't agree on a budget and the studio passed.
Indiewire spoke to the veteran filmmaker about THE FLY and the now defunct EASTERN PROMISES 2, and Cronenberg revealed, "It wasn't really a remake, it was more of a sequel or a sidebar. It was a meditation on fly-ness. None of the same characters or anything and, of course, with an understanding of modern technology. It was something I was very pleased with and it was a disappointment not to get it made. Again it was a budget problem, basically."
A meditation on fly-ness? Cronenberg's films have always been meditative pieces, with his penchant for the physically visceral and contemplative tone really mixing beautifully in this year's COSMOPOLIS; a challenging, often absurd, special film. It's sad we most likely won't see a filmmaker, as sharp as ever, return to a world he's enthused by.
