About Super Fly:

Sony is setting up a remake of the 1972 crime drama Super Fly, according to Variety. The studio has closed a development deal for the rights of the movie, with Watchmen writer Alex Tse writing the movie script. Super Fly was directed by Gordon Parks Jr. His father, Gordon Parks, directed the classic Shaft movie which is currently filming in Atlanta with Samuell L. Jackson, Richard Roundtree, Alexandra Shipp and Jesse T. Usher.)

Super Fly starred Ron O’Neal as Priest Youngblood, a cocaine dealer who was trying to do one last deal before he left the drug business forever. The film also starred Sheila Frazier as Georgia, Julius Harris as Scatter and Charles McGregor as Fat Freddie. Curtis Mayfield and members of The Curtis Mayfield Experience appeared as themselves. Mayfield was responsible for the music in the film and the soundtrack outsold the box office take. Super Fly featured a customized 1971 Cadillac Eldorado and is credited with starting the car customization trend in the 1970s. There was a sequel called Super Fly T.N.T. in 1973 with O’Neal reprising his role. The original film’s producer Sig Shore directed a second sequel in 1990 called The Return of Superfly.
