Cronenberg says "Scanners" is getting remade


David Cronenberg told Sci Fi Wire that a remake of his film "Scanners" is in the works at Artisan. "That would be good because I might get a little bit of money from it," Cronenberg said in an interview. "But I prefer my movies not be remade". "It would be strange to see Scanners redone, and there’s talk about redoing The Brood also. I don’t know if it’s Artisan for that, but there are discussions. But I’m not likely to have anything to do with [the proposed remakes]. I certainly wouldn’t want to remake those myself."
