Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends! The Weekly Static! The Weekly Static!

In what has been described as a competitive situation that I hope didn’t involve any righteous migraines or exploding skulls, David Cronenberg‘s cult classic 1981 science fiction thriller Scanners is being developed as a television series.

It hasn’t become clear just what David Cronenberg‘s next feature will be, now that he’s delivered Cosmopolis in time for Cannes.
