Emmerich to remake Fantastic Voyage!

 

I'm scurred......

 

 

Roland Emmerich will direct a remake of the 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage for 20th Century Fox. National Treasure screenwriters Marianne and Cormac Wibberley are in talks to pen the script.

 

"Voyage" is about a scientist who is dying of a blood clot. His only chance for survival is for five scientist colleagues to be miniaturized in a ship, and injected into his bloodstream.

 

The original, directed by Richard Fleischer, starred Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasence.

 

Emmerich's Centropolis Entertainment partner Michael Wimer will produce with James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment.

 

It is Emmerich's second tour of duty on the project, after being attached a decade ago. The Wibberleys recently took a stab at a draft of "Voyage" that sparked the director's renewed interest in doing the remake.

 

Emmerich recently completed 10,000 B.C., which will be released March 7 by Warner Bros.

Now the Logan's Run adaptation might be promising, because Bryan Singer is at the helm.

 

Edit: Bryan Singer has jumped ship, and the film has been shelved, for now......

 

But back to Fantastic Voyage.......As DRF mentioned, they need to work both Lakeside and Coolio into the movie somehow.......

After Superman Returns, Singer doesn't hold a lot of salt for me. Great action sequences, but that crap with the kid was just f-ing stupid.

Spacey was the only redeeming part of that movie. Otherwise, bleh.

 

 

Yeah, he did chew the scenery, didn't he? And I thought Lois Lane was hot as hell. And the airplane action sequence was amazing and gave us a perfect Superman moment. After that, though, there really wasn't much to the movie. I'll still go see the new one, but I don't have high expectations for it. Unless they kill the kid - that's the only thing that will redeem this series for me.

That would be a very cool re-make. :thu:

 

I also think they should re-make the movie, The Battle for Midway.

 

I also think they should do a movie on the sinking of the USS Indianapolis; an incredible story.
