What is it with these announced Cronenberg remakes? First came the announcement that
THE FLY was going to be remade again, then Nicolas Cage was interested in playing th
lead role. Now things are starting to pick up on the upcoming remake for David
Cronenberg's SCANNERS. According to IGN and other different sources, Darren Lynn
Bousman (Saw II, Saw III and the upcoming Saw IV) will be directing the remake of
SCANNERS for Dimension Films. David Goyer (Batman Begins, the Blade series) is scripting.
Lets just hope that this movie will be better then those so called "sequels."
In the original film Darryl Revok is the most powerful of all the scanners, and is the head of
the underground scanner movement for world domination. Scanners have great psychic
power, strong enough to control minds; they can inflict enormous pain/damage on their
victims. Doctor Paul Ruth finds a scanner that Revok hasn't, and converts him to their
cause - to destroy the underground movement.
