MTV News spoke with Cameron and producer Jon Landau on the red carpet at the London premiere of “Avatar,” where they spoke of their to remake sci-fi classic “Fantastic Voyage,” in 3-D, with Cameron taking on the role of producer.
In the original, a small team attempts to save the life of a nearly-assassinated diplomat through a uniquely invasive surgical procedure. The magic of science allows the doctors to be shrunken down to microscopic size and injected into the ailing diplomat’s body. Piloting a specialized submersible craft — also tiny — the team attempts to repair with the diplomat’s condition — a blood clot in his brain — on a cellular level.
The original hit theaters in 1966, long before digital effects were a factor in Hollywood filmmaking. It is a great sci-fi movie with Raquel Welch being all Raquel Welch in it.
The plot has been used countless times in TV shows such as Futurama, The Mighty Boosh and more. Plus there was the Dennis Quaid Martin Short team up in Inner Space.
Quite exciting news that Cameron is getting behind the remake and with todays technology with the 3D lovelieness then it should be one to watch.
