Hello, Jana here,
James Cameron is adding another project to his already crowded plate. After ‘The Last Train From Hiroshima: The Survivors Look Back‘ has been delayed, Cameron’s announced not only a sequel to the ground-breaking ‘Avatar‘, but a third and fourth installment as well, ‘The Informationist‘ and ‘Battle Angel‘ round out his expected ventures. He’s recently announced his plans to remake the 1966 sci-fi classic ‘The Fantastic Voyage‘.
Scriptwriter David Goyer is joining the celebrated filmmaker on the project. Goyer is responsible for the scripts for the ‘Blade‘ films, ‘Man of Steel‘ and is going to be writing the ‘Justice League‘ film. Cameron, Jon Landau and Rae Sanchini are producing through their Lightstorm banner. Goyer is only the last in a line of writers that have been attached to the project but his involvement kickstarts the stalled re-make and puts it on the fast track for what the studio and producers hope will be a huge anchor for it’s release date. This idea is aided by the track record Goyer has with tentpole picture.
‘The Fantastic Voyage‘ is the story of a diplomat being nearly assassinated. In order to save him, a submarine is shrunken to microscopic size and injected into his blood stream with a small crew. Problems arise almost as soon as they enter the bloodstream, as people being injected into the bloodstream tend to do. For my money, watch ‘Innerspace’, it’s far more entertaining, well at least you get to see a fantastic looking Dennis Quaid.
