In line with Selection, Sony has begun growing a remake of Tremendous Fly, Gordon Parks Jr.’s cult blaxploitation hit from 1972. The unique Tremendous Fly bought a sequel, so Selection notes that Sony is hoping that this new film can even “result in a collection of movies”—though each studio hopes that each film will someway spawn a collection of infinite sequels. Presently, all we all know in regards to the new Tremendous Fly is that it will likely be written by Alex Tse, a screenwriter who labored on the Watchmen film, Spike Lee’s Sucker Free Metropolis, an early draft of the troubled Crow revival, and that’s about it.
The unique film starred Ron O’Neal as Youngblood Priest, a cocaine supplier trying to make one final sale earlier than he retires. Naturally, that’s simpler stated than accomplished. The film was additionally accompanied by a soundtrack that was so wildly profitable that it truly made more cash than the movie itself. This new model will in all probability must stay as much as that greater than something, but when Sony needs a free thought, it might actually simply reuse the very same soundtrack.
