James Cameron turns Fantastic Voyage into a love story

10.31.2011

Since AVATAR James Cameron has had his name attached to a number of films, but most of those have been in the role of producer. One such project he’s lent his name to is the remake of FANTASTIC VOYAGE, a camptastic 1966 sci-fi film about a miniature submarine cruising through someone’s bloodstream.

Currently Shawn Levy, director of REAL STEEL is attached, and Cameron recently spoke to Deadline about a new direction for the story he came up with.

“I gave him my idea about how this should be turned into a love story and he’s really run with it.”

Cameron says it’s about two thirds of the way there in the development process. Much like Titanic the new Voyage has a real emotional core to it, basically dealing with a doctor going through troubled times in his marriage who finds himself injected into his gravely ill wife in order to save her life. Apparently, once he gets to the brain, things really heat up.

So they’re making OSMOSIS JONES a dramatic love story? Kidding, kidding. I mean, it sounds half creative, half ridiculous, and I would be very curious to see how the hell this would turn out, especially if the focus is on a romance.

Extra Tidbit: Levy might push this back to do FRANKENSTEIN or PINNOCHIO first.

I can roll with this for now. I can conceive of ways where this could work. I imagine it will still have it's share of action/adventure even with the love story angle. I can't see the love story angle becoming something akin to The Fountain or Solaris (although I loved both of those as well...just not in a Fantastic Voyage remake).

No...just no. Why not just keep it as a creepy, sci-fi, slightly action, slightly horror kind of film?? What wrong with that? I am so sick of everything having to have a love story angle....and I'm a chick! Please do not turn it into a chick flick!

Captain: "Where are we?"
1st officer: " Sir I..... I believe we're in what appears to be the....... Vagina..... Sir".
Captain: "Engage tongues..... I mean stabilizers........ Oh I Definately see you now".

It's ok to make this a love story..... Just don't make this a looooove story.

Looking forward to seeing this...... This version.... Not mine.

Sounds good. A love element is always key to having an audience invest in the characters. This will have amazing eye candy I'm sure, at least they are trying to do more with it that just pretty images.
And yes, Cameron always does love stories, and they always rock.

This should be no surprise

Cameron said in an interview once that ALL his movies are love stories. I bet Piranha 2 had a love story.

Does James Cameron have to turn EVERY MOVIE into a love story? Titanic, Terminator, True Lies, Avatar: they all had to revolve around a love story. It's funny how he has to find a way to make action films into chick flicks. He emasculates action films.

It's because Cameron knows Love is worth fighting for.

You have it reversed. Cameron turns every love story into an action flick. He makes chick flicks for guys.

If done right, this could be Innerspace by way of Mission: Impossible with a dash of Prison Break thrown into it.
