A feature film based on the 1970's limited run Marvel comics character The Human Fly is in development says Deadline.
Alan Brewer and Steven Goldmann picked up the rights to the property recently.
Goldmann will direct while Brewer and James James Reach will produce.
There were two versions of the character, the first proved a villain to various characters including Spidey.
The second saw a young man of unknown identity severely injured during a car crash. Reconstructive surgeries replaced his skeleton with steel and he became a stunt performer who helped children with disabilities while getting into conflict with various criminals.
Of course the more heroic version of the character will be adapted in this film.
