Scanners To Explode Again Onscreen

Darren Lynn Bousman, the director of both “Saw” sequels, just closed a deal to remake David Cronenberg’s famed 1981 horror pic “Scanners”.

The story revolves around a scientist who infiltrates an underground movement of “scanners,” whose telepathic abilities make them lethal weapons – including the ability to explode heads.

David Goyer will pen the script which will include the paranoia and genetic engineering themes prevalent in the original that are more credible these days.

An early 2008 production start is scheduled for release later that year.
