Fantastic Voyage

It's been over four years since we first heard about a remake of the classic 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage from producer James Cameron, and there's been a long line of writers and directors who have come and gone from the project. Now it looks like Cameron is starting from scratch as THR reports he's hired David S. Goyer, the man behind the stories for The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel, to write a treatment for the film and also executive produce the project. The plan is for Goyer to re-engineer the project that Fox and Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment hope will be a big blockbuster tentpole. Read on!

Goyer is much better at coming up with stories than he is for writing the actual screenplay, so hopefully he gives Fox something solid to start with so they can bring in another writer to bring everything together. For those who aren't familiar, the film follows a group of scientists who are miniaturized and injected into another scientist's body to remove a blood clot in his brain to save his life and salvage secret information about miniaturization that only he knows. It definitely lends itself to being remade, especially with the incredible special effects at our disposal now. And surely Cameron will want our journey inside the human body to be in 3D, so that will make for a fun experience. Sound good?

Good idea. Then they can remake Innerspace two years after that.

Sounds fine to me. Besides, it's been nearly fifty years since the original FV came out--a remake, if done well, works for me. Still have to read Isaac Asimov's sequel, FANTASTIC VOYAGE II...

Goyer is a better writer than most of these chumps in Hollywood, I can't wait. Man of Steel was excellent and proves Goyer has some amazing talent, a flawless movie.

Boo. The original show was bad. Goyer is bad when he writes alone.
