Emmerich Takes A Fantastic Voyage

Director Roland Emmerich is readying a remake of the 1966 sci-fi pic “Fantastic Voyage” for 20th Century Fox says Variety.

“Voyage” is about a scientist who is dying of a blood clot. His only chance for survival is for five scientist colleagues to be miniaturized in a ship, and injected into his bloodstream.

The original, directed by Richard Fleischer, starred Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasence. “National Treasure” scribes Marianne and Cormac Wibberley are in talks to write the script of the remake.
