There hasn't been much news on the 20th Century Fox sci-fi remake Fantastic Voyage since director Shawn Levy signed onto the project back in February. The director reportedly wants an A-list star for the remake, and is meeting with Will Smith in the next few weeks to see if he will star in Fantastic Voyage.
However, since the development has been moving rather slowly on Fantastic Voyage, it is believed that Shawn Levy will likely leave the project if Will Smith or another bankable actor doesn't sign on soon. It is also said that Fox isn't exactly keen on landing an A-list star, likely because of the price tag that comes along with such a big name. We reported in May that Hugh Jackman, who stars in Shawn Levy's upcoming movie Real Steel, was considered to star in Fantastic Voyage, although we haven't heard anything about the actor's involvement since then.
If he stays on, Shawn Levy will direct Fantastic Voyage from a screenplay by Laeta Kalogridis and Shane Salerno. The project isn't greenlit yet, and, while 20th Century Fox wouldn't comment on the story, studio sources are hopeful that Shawn Levy will stay on to direct Fantastic Voyage.
