Director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) has signed on to remake the 1966 sci-fi pic Fantastic Voyage for 20th Century Fox, according to Variety.

National Treasure screenwriters Marianne and Cormac Wibberley are in talks to write the script.

Fantastic Voyage is about a scientist who is dying of a blood clot. His only chance for survival is for five scientist colleagues to be miniaturized in a ship, and injected into his bloodstream.

The original, directed by Richard Fleischer, starred Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasence.
