All-female remake of ‘Lord of the Flies’?

Deadline news is reporting a remake of ‘Lord of the Flies’ is being written and directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel. But here’s the rub…  All female cast.

The pair said they hoped to do a “very faithful but contemporised adaptation of the book”, which they said was about children “replicating the behaviour they saw in grown-ups.”

They hope the new film – which is still in the early concept stages – could break away from conventions around the “ways we think of boys and aggression.”

But online, the idea has not gone down well
