Fox 2000 revives De Palma’s ‘Fury’

McGreevy, Shipman to write reimagining

Fox 2000 is set to bring Brian De Palma’s “The Fury” back to the bigscreen.

The label has tapped Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman to pen a contemporary reimagining of the 1978 supernatural horror film.

New version will center on a young man with heightened kinetic powers who is abducted by the government in order to take advantage of his special gifts.

Original, starring Kirk Douglas and John Cassavetes and released by 20th Century Fox, was based on John Farris’ 1976 novel of the same name.

Ted Field is producing through his Radar Pictures banner. Mike Weber exec produces.

Newcomers McGreevy and Shipman penned the spec “Of Every Wickedness,” about America’s first known serial killer, which landed on the industry’s Black List of the hottest unproduced spec scripts and garnered the duo a lot of attention. They nabbed “The Fury” gig off of that script.

McGreevy and Shipman are repped by Paradigm and manager Michael Connolly.
