It seems that a remake that has been making headlines lately might have a big headline-making director as well. According to IESB.net, it seems that director James Cameron is interested in directing the remake of Forbidden Planet.
J. Michael Straczynski wrote the script for this remake of the 1956 sci-fi classic. It seems that Cameron was interested in this film way back in 1998 after his last major feature film, Titanic, was enormously successful, but the film fell apart. Now that Warner Bros. is resurrrecting the project, it appears that Cameron wants in again.
Of course, none of this has been confirmed by the studio, but we'll surely keep you posted on more information surrrounding this remake.
