. . . it been too many years to do a sequel anyway; you have to do a remake and a sequel in the same movie.

WRITE down all the scenes and ideas that you want to see in the sequel AND THEN write another script beginning at the beginning with all of the "sequel ideas and scenes in it."

FOX really shouldn't adroitly pass on the idea; merely ask for another screenplay that it is willing to produce.

Its important to make good science-fiction movies to help stimulate the minds of future audiences.

The Book of Enoch

The Book of Enoch (also 1 Enoch[1]) is an ancient Jewish religious work, traditionally ascribed to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah. It is not part of the biblical canon as used by Jews, apart from Beta Israel. It is regarded as canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and Eritrean Orthodox Church, but no other Christian group.

Western scholars believe that its older sections (mainly in the Book of the Watchers) date from about 300 BC, and the latest part (Book of Parables) probably was composed at the end of the 1st century BC.[2]

It is wholly extant only in the Ge'ez language, with Aramaic fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls and a few Greek and Latin fragments. There is no consensus among scholars about the original language: some propose Aramaic, others Hebrew, while the probable thesis, according to E. Isaac, is that 1 Enoch, like Daniel, was composed partially in Aramaic and partially in Hebrew.[3]:6 Ethiopian scholars generally hold that Ge'ez is the language of the original from which the Greek and Aramaic copies were made, pointing out that it is the only language in which the complete text has yet been found.[4]

A short section of 1 Enoch (1 En 1:9) is quoted in the New Testament (Letter of Jude 1:14-15), and is there attributed to "Enoch the Seventh from Adam" (1 En 60:8). It is argued that all the writers of the New Testament were familiar with it and were influenced by it in thought and diction.[5]

------------
. . . . essentially The Book of Enoch describes The Demons that inhabit the Earth.

I have that book. I like mythology. Cronenberg should do a film about John Dee. Or Lovecraft even.

Cronenbergs Fly is a fantastic bit of horror (Even if Gina Davies stunk the place up), Fox are idiots for passing.

It was probably pretty awesome, which goes against the rules for horror remakes.
