Bourne's Greengrass headed for a Fantastic Voyage

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Wednesday, March 31, 2010

For more than a decade 20th Century Fox has been trying to remake Fantastic Voyage. Back in the 1990s, when Independence Day made instant A-list creative talent of director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin the two began to shepherd the development of a remake. But the Emmerich/Devlin Fantastic Voyage never got further than the screenplay stage and fell into development hell.

And then three years ago Emmerich came back onboard the project, albeit for a brief sojourn; when 2012 started happening and became Emmerich's next go picture the director left the new Voyage behind once again. James Cameron was the next to express interest in the project as a producer and that's where things have remained until today.

Now it's Paul Greengrass, the director of the last two Bourne movies, United 93 and Green Zone, who's circling the new Fantastic Voyage. The English director remade his name as an action director thanks to the Bourne films and now Greengrass might remake it again by taking on an effect heavy film that would utilize the same stereoscopic 3D filming technique pioneered by Cameron in his Avatar movie. Cameron still remains as a producer on the film and the latest script was written by Shane Salerno (Alien vs. PredatorRequiem).

Directed by Richard Fleischer and starring a wetsuit clad Rachel Welch as one of five scientists shrunk down to microscopic size and then injected into the bloodstream of an injured diplomat, the diminutive team races to save the life of the patient before a blood clot kills him or the time runs out and they return back to full-size while still inside the patient's body. Salerno's Fantastic Voyage replaces the diplomat with a scientist in medical jeopardy.

I liked Innerspace, but it needed more Raquel Welch.
