Paul Greengrass in talks to direct 'Fantastic Voyage' 3-D remake

Paul Greengrass, director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, is in negotiations to helm a 3-D remake of the 1966 sci-fi classic Fantastic Voyage, according to Variety. James Cameron is producing through his company Lightstorm Entertainment, and the production will use the same 3-D filmmaking technology that Cameron pioneered in his mega-blockbuster Avatar. The storyline will reportedly mirror the original Fantastic Voyage, about a scientist whose dire health can only be treated by five people miniaturized inside a specialized submarine and injected into the man’s body. The original film won an Oscar for its then-cutting-edge visual effects.
