‘Sleight’ Director J.D. Dillard to Direct ‘The Fly’ Remake
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. The Fly, first made popular by Vincent Price and Kurt Neumann in 1958, and revamped in 1986 by David Cronenberg and Jeff Goldblum. This time around, Sleight director J.D. Dillard is taking on the story of a man who Kafkas himself into a giant bug.
