EXCL: Brood Remake Closer to Birth


Based on the David Cronenberg film

Cory Goodman, screenwriter of next year’s horror-actioner Priest, tells us the remake of David Cronenberg’s The Brood that he is penning is alive and well. In fact, the producing team at Spyglass Entertainment has a director circling the project that he’s excited about and an announcement is coming soon. Goodman added that he’s taking another pass at the script which contemporizes Cronenberg’s story. And, of course, it will feature malevolent tykes.

In the original 1979 flick which starred Oliver Reed, Art Hindle and Samantha Eggar, a man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist’s therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, while a series of brutal attacks committed by a brood of mutant children coincides with the husband’s investigation. (It’s a real sicko movie, fiends.)

We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear more.
