Finally, Some Good Remake News

Naw, I’m just fucking with you. This is goddamn miserable.

Anyone see the 1966 flick Fantastic Voyage? Directed by Richard Fleischer, I remember my dad making me watch it when he was in one of his many “respect the classics” moods. Invariably, he was right, damn him, and Fantastic Voyage was no exception. It’s a pretty amazing flick, and it actually holds up quite well. I’m not necessarily pissed that it’s being remade — it’s the type of material that’s ripe for such things, in fact. With modern special effects, it could really blow audiences away, much in the way that its spiritual successor, the enjoyable Martin Short film InnerSpace was.

So no, I’m not filled with any sort of righteous fury about its remaking. That said, if it’s not too much trouble, could we at least put it in the hands of a capable director? One who would work with a solid cast and give the material the love and attention it deserves?

What’s that you say? Shawn Levy? Oh. What’s he got under his belt?
