Paul Greengrass May Take Really Fanciful Trip

Following December's news that James Cameron wants to produce a remake of the inside-the-human-body film-cum-Coolio-song Fantastic Voyage, shooting the picture with the extra dimension he invented, Heat Vision is reporting Paul Greengrass is now in talks to direct this thing:

Paul Greengrass, coming off the Iraq War thriller “Green Zone,” is moving into more commercial territory by going on a “Fantastic Voyage.” 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 “Voyage,” made during the Cold War, revolved around a team of scientists who are shrunk to atomic size and sent on a miniature submarine to save the life of a defecting Soviet scientist. The story then followed the biological adventures the team encounters in trying to save the scientist and themselves.

The new take hews closely to the original, minus the Cold War element, and will add snazzy up-to-date special effects and be delivered with the medium du jour, 3D.

I hope they go inside the scrotum this time. I feel sort of dumb having had one for so long and not really knowing what it looks like in there.
