Nicolas Cage continues his wrath of celluloid destruction

From bloodydisgusting, "First he kicked some cult chicks asses in Wicker Man, then he transformed into Ghost Rider, now Nicolas Cage is vying for the part of The Fly in a planned remake of David Cronenberg's 1986 cult classic, according to the director himself. Cronenberg, who is working on an operatic version of the creepy man-insect story, will not be involved in the remake, but he has been kept abreast of developments. He tells E! "From what I hear, Nic Cage wants the part." Thanks to PR-Inside for the news! In Cronenberg's film, a scientist who becomes half human and half fly slowly transforms more into fly than man."

I'm not sure what's weirder, that they're completely ignoring that Cronenberg's flick was itself a remake, or that "Cronenberg is working on an operatic version of the creepy man-insect story."

Of all the many, many property crossovers we endure, the recent choices for turning movies into musicals baffles me the most. Especially since posters of this crazy chick started getting in my face every time I take the train.
