Fantastic Voyage remake gets Paul Greengrass to direct

According to Heat Vision he is in talks to remake the 1966 sci-fi film which is going to be produced by James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment. That will mean it is going to be 3D, which may be a good thing considering the type of tale.
The original film 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.
I am a fan of the original (mmmm Raquel Welch), but I think a remake will be worth watching. With todays technology it should look brilliant. I just hope that there is not too much shaky cam which Greengrass seems to enjoy.
I wonder if they will mix a bit of Inner Space in it by having an opposing sub sent in to stop the good guys?
Who do you want to see in the film and do you think Greengrass is a good choice to direct?
