A new Super Fly remake has made its way to Georgia.
It’s official: Columbia Pictures and Sony are doing a remake of Super Fly, and production has already begun in Georgia. The original crime drama, a blaxploitation cult classic first released in 1972, made such a distinct mark on the American cultural landscape that it is even credited with the country’s original boom in custom-car appreciation. Alex Tse, best known for his work on Watchmen, will pen the script; Joel Silver and Sony exec Palak Patel will produce. The cast, however, has not yet been secured. In the original film, the lead role of Priest Youngblood–a man bent on pulling off one last deal before retiring from the drug trade–was played to iconic perfection by Ron O’Neal.
