(SOLVED) Are They Remaking Lord Of The Flies?

First published as a novel in 1954, William Golding’s Lord of the Flies has appeared numerous times on stage, screen, radio and required high school reading lists. It’s a frequent inclusion on lists of the best English-language novels of all time, and it’s title is a shorthand descriptor for men giving into their baser instincts and running amok. So, while it may not be as poppy as say a popular comic book superhero or beloved cartoon fairytale, Hollywood can’t seem but to help to see it as hot intellectual property with the potential to be a box office (and potentially awards season) hit 👍 [1]
They both take the title of the novel. However, the American remake differs significantly from the original. Anyone unfamiliar with the story should read the 1963 movie version. Not only are the marooned boys military cadets, they are accompanied on the island by a lone adult (the pilot of the crashed plane), who, despite intruding on the story’s authenticity, stays true to its general mood by being stabbed to death in a cave with a makeshift spear. How Guadagnino’s chooses to interpret the story remains to be seen, but accompanied by Ness, it will undoubtedly be worth watching. A nice one goes to Sekou from Johannesburg, South Africa. [2]

Cole Cates, describes how gender-flipped remakes aren’t a new concept in Hollywood, but they have been popping up with surprising regularity. Ghostbusters’ redux made Trolls cry like crocodile tears last year. Next year will bring us the glamorous Ocean’s Eleven remake, starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, and more. One hopeful day, Jillian Bell’s gender-swapped version of Splash, co-starring Channing Tatum, will hit our screens. These films are all very well-made. They adapt classic films to female perspectives and give actresses roles not usually given to them. However, not all stories can be flipped to the gender of female. Particularly if that story is William Golding’s classic Lord of the Flies, a vicious tale about a barbaric boy-made society. [3]
Rochell Pierson slashfilm.comVariety reports that Guadagnino has been in discussions with the studio about the possibility of directing the movie and producing it alongside his producer partner Marco Morabito. Guadagnino directed films like I Am Love (last year’s controversial remake of Suspiria), and A Bigger Splash. But this is his biggest film. Career Call Me By Your Name 2017, a sweet portrait of love, was released in 2017. That film made Timothée Chalamet a household name, but doing the same thing for a cast of young boys in a new Lord of the Flies adaptation may prove much more difficult, considering the subject matter.

Cherise Jamison denofgeek.comTHR reports that the director was in negotiations with Warner Bros. To take over the project. He would also be producing it with Marco Morabito as his producing partner. Back in 2017, there was talk of adapting William Golding’s novel but gender-swapping it so it would focus on a group of school girls shipwrecked on an island who turn into savages, rather than boys (as in the novel). Scott McGehee, Dan Siegel would have written the script. However, this method was criticised for having a masculine creative team. Behind what was to be a female-led story. Scott V.
