Paul Greengrass May Go On A FANTASTIC VOYAGE

Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum, United 93, Green Zone) is currently in talks to direct a remake of the 1966 Sci-Fi classic Fantastic Voyage for producer James Camerons Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox. This project has been bandied about for a number of years and the likes of Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) and Tarsem Singh (The Cell) have both been rumored to helm the project in the past.

The original film, made in 1966 starred Stephen Boyd, Raquel Welch, Donald Pleasence and James Brolin. It was made during the Cold War, and revolved around a team of scientists who are shrunk to atomic size and sent on a miniature submarine to save the life of a defecting Soviet scientist. The story then followed the biological adventures the team encounters in trying to save the scientist and themselves.

The new take will supposedly stay closely to the original theme, minus the Cold War element, and being produced by Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment means it will, of course be shot in 3D.
