Fox Is Still Furious After 30 Years
Created 04/23/2008 - 23:00
Director Brian De Palma's THE FURY, a 1978 supernatural horror flick, is being revived by Fox 2000, per VARIETY.
Fox has hired Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman to write a contemporary reimagining of the film, to be centered on a young man with heightened kinetic powers who is abducted by the government.
The original starred Kirk Douglas and John Cassavetes, was released by 20th Century Fox and was based on John Farris' 1976 novel of the same name.
Mike Weber will executive produce; Ted Field will produce via his Radar Pictures.
McGreevy and Shipman wrote OF EVERY WICKEDNESS, a spec about America's first known serial killer, and garnered the duo enough attention to earn THE FURY gig.
