While Breck Eisner has the impressive remake of The Crazies arriving in theaters next Friday, the son of Walt Disney chief executive officer Michael is still having trouble getting his next off the ground. While he was originally developing Uni’s Creature from the Black Lagoon redo, it was recently revealed that he’ll be bringing David Cronenberg’s classic The Brood back to the big screen. Not so fast says SyFy. “I’m not signed on [The Brood], no,” Eisner told the site Thursday. “I was approached about the movie, and I’m just in discussions about it.” Adding, “I like the writer, Cory Goodman’s, script…I’m a big fan of the original. I still have yet to decide if it’s something I really want to be doing. Is it a movie for me? I’m still kind of soul-searching on that one.” The original followed a woman who telepathically communicates with her group of mutant children, instructing them to act out violently.
