Super Fly Remake In the Works


Sony Pictures set to remake 70s cult classic Super Fly...
 
From Variety,
Sony has closed a development deal for the rights to the classic blaxploitation pic “Superfly,” with “Watchmen” scribe Alex Tse penning the script.
The film is inspired by the 1972 classic, which starred Ron O’Neal as Priest, a cocaine dealer looking to score one more super deal and retire. The movie was directed by Gordon Parks Jr., the son of Gordon Parks, who directed another blaxploitation classic “Shaft” — one of the staples in the early years of the genre that took the ’70s by storm.

Is there going to be a 'Black Starlet' remake too?

Next up: Gabrielle Union stars in Get Christy Love because Vivica is too old for action figure type characters and Gabrielle, despite her age, can probably do a much better job at puling it off.

The original is quite good. Pick up the video. I won't be spending my hard earned for this shit.

And since Hollyweird can't seem to come up with any of their own ideas anymore, they'd better do it justice. Don't have a ridiculous fuck boi that NO ONE will believe in the starring role....

9:18 IKR. Unless you're a diehard blaxploitation movie fan, you never heard about this movie until recently. Even more interesting is that according to PR, the lead actress got caught up in real life and died very young. RIP Juanita Brown.

Wait! Is Tyrese going to claim Ron O'Neal hand picked him to play Priest even though the rest of us know Mr. O'Neal has been deceased since 2004? RIP Mr. O'Neal.

Sheila Frazier was the actress in Super Fly.

10:46. Juanita Brown is still alive, clown...and Shelia Frazier was the lead.

@245...reading is fundamental. I was referring to the movie that the other poster was talking about NOT Superfly. Also, I said that PR (as in Panache Report) said Juanita Brown (who was the lead in Black Starlet) died at a young age under less than ideal circumstance. Again, learn how to read before you come for somebody ASSWIPE!

Wonder if they gonna choose Tom Cruise or Bradley Cooper as the lead.

Just an observation said...

I understand the actors then didn't see themselves as doing 'blaxploitation' movies. They were seen as having jobs but dammit, I don't like these movies!!
