You guys! Check it out! You aren’t going to believe this, but…it’s a news item about a remake!

What’s getting the do-over treatment this time? Why, it’s David Cronenberg‘s The Brood, the 1979 horror classic starring Oliver Reed as a psychotherapist whose, um, unorthodox techniques cause Samantha Eggar to “give birth” to a small army of creepy kids who act out her repressed anger.

The new Brood, according to Variety, will be written by Cory Goodman and released through Spyglass Entertainment, and is reflective of what Variety refers to as “something of a renaissance” for Cronenberg; aside from the critical praise enjoyed by his most recent projects, A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, his earlier films are becoming trendy remake subjects — in development alongside The Brood is a Darren Lynn Bousman-directed update on Scanners.
