James Cameron's Long Developing 'Fantastic Voyage' Will Get A Treatment By David S. Goyer

The last time we heard about the James Cameron produced remake of the 1966 sci-fi "Fantastic Voyage," he presented it as a romance. “I gave [fomerly attached director Shawn Levy] my idea about how this should be turned into a love story and he’s really run with it,” he said way back in 2011. Since then, "Avatar" has become Cameron's life and we haven't heard much about "Voyage," but it's now slowly kicking back to life.

Fantastic Voyage David Goyer

The last time we heard about the James Cameron produced remake of the 1966 sci-fi "Fantastic Voyage," he presented it as a romance. “I gave [fomerly attached director Shawn Levy] my idea about how this should be turned into a love story and he’s really run with it,” he said way back in 2011. Since then, "Avatar" has become Cameron's life and we haven't heard much about "Voyage," but it's now slowly kicking back to life.

The trades don't often do this kind of reporting, but when you hire someone like David S. Goyer to simply write a treatment, it's worth paying attention to. Of course, Goyer is currently WB's DC Comics guru, putting his pen to "Man Of Steel," the forthcoming sequel and of course, and "Justice League" (not to mention his work on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy). So perhaps Cameron wants a grittier take on the tale of a group of scientists who are miniaturized and sent into a human body in a submarine to remove a blood clot from a colleague’s brain—a scientist who is invaluable to the CIA? Guess we'll have to see. While his screenplays aren't always so hot, as far as story concepts go, Goyer is a great choice to stitch the fabric of the world that will be expanded upon.

Goyer's involvement now puts the project on the "fast track" at Lightstorm Entertainment, though in Cameron's realm, that phrase is a relative term. It should be noted that Goyer is the latest of a string of writers who have attempt to crack "Fantastic Voyage" — Shane Salerno, Cormac and Marianne Wibberly, and Laeta Kalogridis — but haven't broken through to the satisfaction of Cameron. [THR]
