The Henson Company is developing and producing a film reboot of the iconic 1986 sci-fi feature “Flight of the Navigator” at Lionsgate.
“Lucifer” showrunner Joe Henderson has been hired to pen the new take on the story of a twelve-year-old boy who is abducted by a UFO and reappears eight years later, at the exact same age and with no memories of what happened.
When NASA officials spot a connection between the boy and a recovered UFO and try to ensnare him, the kid tries to unravel the intergalactic mystery while trying to reunite with his family. Randal Kleiser (“Grease”) helmed the original.
“Jurassic World” scribes Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly at one point took a shot at a remake of the property in 2009, but that version didn’t go forward. The third season of “Lucifer” hits FOX next week.
