For quite a long time James Cameron has been planning to produce a remake of Vantastic Voyage, however it hasn’t happened so far. Initially he was thinking of directing himself, but Avatar sequels meant he had to give the job to someone else.
The likes of Shawn Levy, Louis Leterrier and Paul Greengrass flirted with the film, but ultimately it got trapped in development and we haven’t heard much about in the last couple of years.
Now THR reports the remake has new life, as David S. Goyer has come onboard to write the movie and produce alongside Cameron. The likes of Shane Salerno, Cormac and Marianne Wibberly, and Laeta Kalogridis have already had a crack at the script, but hopefully Goyer will be able to bring some of the magic that he gave to the Dark Knight movies and Man of Steel.
20th Century Fox is now kicking the project into high gear, putting it on the fast track in the hope it can be a major tent-pole event pic.
The original 1966 Fantastic Voyage is about a team of scientists who are miniaturised and injected into the body of a colleague, in order to try and save his life.
