Cameron's next Voyage

12.10.2009

After his grand alien epic AVATAR, apparently James Cameron is actually taking things down to a really, really small scale. Next alien world: the human interior!

Despite the recent rumors that the otherworld-maker would be tackling a sci-fi "event" movie called DOOMSDAY PROTOCOL, now we have further clarification on his planned project, and it's fantastic. Literally.

In fact, it's a 3D remake of 1966 sci-fi flick FANTASTIC VOYAGE. MTV spoke with Cameron and producer Jon Landau at AVATAR's UK premiere, and learned that Cameron will indeed be in charge of the update's unlikely science and microscopic ships... but only in the role of producer. (UPDATE: This has since been corroborated by Variety.)

The original movie involved a team of scientists (including slinky supergoddess Raquel Welch) who miniaturize themselves and travel inside an injured diplomat to perform some internal surgery. Inside the bloodstream they must contend with antibodies, sabotage and funky Coolio remixes.

Given Cameron's knowledge, sci-fi acumen and technological filmmaking advancements, this thing could look astonishingly cool (possibly more than INNERSPACE?).

Extra Tidbit: Cameron was involved with a FANTASTIC VOYAGE remake years ago, but ultimately handed it over to global deconstructor Roland Emmerich (who had also been attached to the project a decade earlier).

Innerspace

Innerspace is a badass film. Just watched it again recently and the effects still hold up. Always wanted a sequel to it.

Loved the original as a kid...

...so much so, I'd almost prefer "solidizing" the original print into 3D. Raquel Welch in 3omfgD!?!

no theme song this time, please

Can we have Vernon Wells star in this? Innerspace was great.

Anyone remember that PBS show "The Magic School Bus"? I remember an episode where they went inside the human body and even as a 6 year old, I couldn't help but wonder what it would look like in live action. Thank you, Mr. Cameron. Thank you.

Cameron Producing or whatever? matters not to me-I would love to see this neat film given an update. I know Martin Short did a comedy/adventure in the same vein years back-but "Fantastic Voyage" has so much potential with all the film tech these days...A must do at some point.
