The Fury Gets A Facelift

But, as an assistant director to Veer, the most famous romantic filmmaker in the Indian Film Industry, Jay has little option but to live with larger than life, glossy, cinematic love on an everyday basis. Things only get worse when he is made to work under the new production designer on the film, Simran. Simran loves love stories; so much so that even her life has begun to resemble one. With her ideal job and the perfect boyfriend, Raj, she lives a blissful, dreamy life. The turmoils of Jay and Simran’s lives, is ironically interweaved with the love story that they are working on. But, will Jay and Simran ever find their own love story???

Brian de Palma’s psychic thriller ‘The Fury’ is set for a remake.

Brian McGreevy and Lee Shipman will write the new version of the supernatural horror film. The film is being billed as  a “contemporary re-imagining” of the 1978 flick based on John Farris’ novel.

The original movie featured Amy Irving as a powerful telekinetic who unwittingly finds herself enmeshed in a shady operation seeking to control psychics. Kirk Douglas, Andrew Stevens, Charles Durning and the great John Cassavetes also starred.

Unsurprisingly, the update will change the lead character to a “young man with heightened kinetic powers who is abducted by the government in order to take advantage of his special gifts”.

EXTRAs: Screenwriters McGreevy and Shipman landed the job based on their serial killer script Of Every Wickedness.
