Yesterday, Production Weekly had an interesting news item that James Cameron would be developing a “futuristic sci-fi ‘event’ movie” working from a script by Shane Salerno (Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem), which led to the speculation that it may be a movie called THR reported on last year called Doomsday Protocol. However, MTV Movies Blog sat down with Cameron and asked him about this mystery project and it turns out that Cameron is production (not directing) a remake of the 1966 sci-fi film Fantastic Voyage.
For those who don’t know, Voyage is about a group of scientists who are shrunken down to miniature size in order to save a nearly-assassinated diplomat by using a very, very, very tiny submarine to travel to the diplomat’s brain and stop a clot from killing him. The remake would be in 3D like Cameron’s Avatar, which hits theaters in eight days. Since it was screened today for pretty much every critic out there, opinions are already exploding all over Twitter despite an embargo so strict that I can neither confirm nor deny that the movie actually exists.
