A latest version of the 1972 classic Super Fly is in the works.
Its script will be penned by Alex Tse, best known for penning Zack Snyder’s adaptation of Watchmen.
The remake is inspired by the classic which starred Ron O’Neal as Priest, a cocaine dealer looking to score one more super deal and retire. The original movie was directed by Gordon Parks Jr, reports variety.com.
Sony executive Palak Patel spearheaded the effort to buy the rights, and the studio is already in the process of making a list of actors to meet for the title role.
The remake is produced by Joel Silver.
