"Green Zone" Director to Take "Fantastic Voyage?" 


Paul Greengrass, the remarkable director of "The Bourne Supremacy," "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Green Zone," and "United 93," is getting ready to take us on a "Fantastic Voyage."

The Hollywood Reporter tells us that the director is in talks to direct Fox’s long-gestating remake of the 1966 sci-fi thriller which is being produced by James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment."

The original film directed by Richard Fleischer featured a submarine shrunk to microscopic size and injected into a nearly assassinated diplomat's blood stream. The one catch? There's a small crew inside the injected submarine. The premise is very similar to Dennis Quaid's "Innerspace" from 1987. In that Joe Dante-directed and Steven Spielberg-produced film, Quaid is injected inside Martin Short's bumbling Safeway clerk character, Jack Putter.

The new "Fantastic Voyage" will harken back to the original's plot, and yes, it will be released in 3D, surprise surprise!
