Just the other day, David Cronenberg revealed his plans for the then planned Fly remake/sequel which never took off, and today, Todd Lincoln (The Apparition) has revealed his plans for when he was once attached.
In speaking with MovieHole, Lincoln told the site;
“My version of The Fly was a dark, twisted, grounded re-imagining”, Lincoln, who is set to direct the feature adaptation of Whitley Strieber’s “The Nye Incidents”, exclusively tells us. “Part Val-Lewton, part J.G Ballard, part Neal Stephenson with some Horror Manga touches. This had nothing to do with the Cronenberg version and it would absolutely not have had the same color palette. This was an all new vision and direction, but still done with complete respect for all five other Fly films and the original short story published in Playboy magazine that started it all.
In my version, someone still becomes a fly, but who becomes it… how they become it… and what happens… are all completely different. I would have done it almost entirely with practical FX.”
So there you have it, a totally different perspective but still no film to be had.
