Director Roland Emmerich is boarding 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 write 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.
