De Palma’s THE FURY Is Next For A Remake

I really think that I’m getting “Remake Fatigue.” I just can’t even work up the energy to write something sarcastic or annoyed by this news of yet another horror film remake.

I’ll just give you the bullet points-

  • Film To Be Remade: Director Brian De Palma’s The Fury (1978), which starred Kirk Douglas and John Cassavetes
  • Studio To Blame: Fox 2000
  • Screenwriters: Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman

  • How They Got The Job: Based on the strength of their unproduced horror spec script, Of Every Wickedness
  • If Their Spec Script Is So Good, Why Isn’t Fox 2000 Making That Instead?: Recent Fox 2000 releases include Eragon, Alvin And The Chipmunks and 27 Dresses. Does that answer your question?
