Shawn Levy will direct Fantastic Voyage for 20th Century Fox and producer James Cameron, reports Deadline.
Set to use the same 3D technology Cameron used for Avatar, Fantastic 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 film is a remake of the 1966 original directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasence.
Shane Salerno wrote the script, which is being polished by Laeta Kalogridis.
Levy’s credits include the “Night at the Museum” films, Date Night and the upcoming Real Steel with Hugh Jackman.
