There’s nothing Hollywood likes more these days than a good old remake. It’s a tried-and-true formula: there will always be fans of the original who will flock to the theater to see the updated version, whether it be for nostalgia purposes or wanting to see better special effects or just the ability to enjoy the same character played over again by a different actor.

Dillard is taking on the story of a man who Kafkas himself into a giant bug.
It’s October and you know what means — it’s time to dust off the horror genre and spend a few weeks screaming at your television.

This week in sequels you weren’t aware that you wanted, comic book imprint IDW Publishing is releasing ‘The Fly: Outbreak,’ a follow-up to David Cronenberg’s 1986 film—which was based on a 1957 short story of the same name, which was also made into a film in 1958. A sequel to Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly’ was released in 1989 without the involvement of the director, and it doesn’t appear that he had much—if anything—to do with this new comic book sequel, either.
