A new take on "The Fly" is in development at 20th Century Fox. "The Fly," which originally debuted as a short story in the pages of a 1957 issue of Playboy, tells the story of a inventor who, in an attempt to transport matter, winds up merging himself with a common housefly to horrific results. Kurt Neumann wrote and directed Fox’s 1958 adaptation, which was headlined by David Hedison. It received two direct sequels, before getting remade by David Cronenberg in 1986. Cronenberg’s "The Fly" remake stars Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis.
