Spyglass nabs Cronenberg’s ‘Brood’

Film unit acquires rights to remake

Spyglass Entertainment has acquired the rights to remake David Cronenberg’s horror classic “The Brood.” Cory Goodman has been tapped to pen the screenplay.

Based on a pitch by Goodman, the psychological/supernatural thriller centers on a woman who undergoes medical treatment that causes her inner rage to physically manifest itself.

Clark Peterson will produce alongside Spyglass’ Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and Jonathan Glickman.

The original “Brood,” released in 1979, was one of Cronenberg’s earliest pics. The Canadian helmer, whose “Eastern Promises” is in theaters, is enjoying something of a renaissance. A remake of Cronenberg’s 1981 film “Scanners” is also in development, with Darren Lynn Bousman attached to direct for Dimension Films.

Goodman’s writing credits include “Priest,” which is set up at Screen Gems, and “Kung Fu” at Warner Bros., with Legendary attached to produce. The scribe also worked on “Killer’s Game” for Intermedia.
