A new Fantastic Voyage

08.15.2007
Considering his penchant for blasting away big chunks of the planet, director Roland Emmerich isn't the person you'd expect to take things down to a really small scale. But the guy behind INDEPENDENCE DAY, GODZILLA and THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW is about to get really tiny.

Emmerich will pilot the molecular craft for Fox's remake of the 1966 sci-fi flick FANTASTIC VOYAGE. The original movie involved a team of scientists (including slinky supergoddess Raquel Welch) who miniaturize themselves and travel inside an injured man to perform some internal surgery. Inside the bloodstream they must contend with antibodies, sabotage and bad Coolio remixes.

NATIONAL TREASURE writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberley will get the microscopic ship in motion. This is actually Emmerich's second attempt at updating the unlikely science -- he was originally attached to the project a decade ago.
Extra Tidbit: A few years back, James Cameron was preparing a remake of VOYAGE. He still has yet to actually finish a new movie.
