James Cameron’s Future Sci-Fi Project Is a Remake of FANTASTIC VOYAGE

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.

    Hmmm, shame imo. The original was good for the time, but now? Seriously?

    A voyage through the human body seems boring, not to mention pointless. The technology we have now on a microscopic level, could all be done via key-hole surgery, and even with advanced digital mapping of the body and robotics.
    Devising a way to shrink a submarine and its crew to put inside a person to do what can be done without seems silly now.
    Unless they make it a comedy???

    Its kinda like building the most advanced spaceship ever created, just to fly from New York to Britain. OTT

    The individual with the blood clot was a scientist in the first movie. He had the secret to keeping objects tiny after they were made small. He was defecting from an unnamed country and was going to trade his science secrets for asylum.

    The concept was already played for laughs in 1987′s Innerspace with Dennis Quaid and Martin Short. I really enjoyed the original film and think that today’s tech could really bring it to life.

    Really looking forward to seeing Avatar, and Fantastic Voyage sounds interesting. I'll wait until a director is announced before I get to excited about it though.
