Now here’s something trippy for you. This item not only concerns a movie remake, but is itself a remake of news from ten years ago: According to Variety, Roland Emmerich has decided to direct a new version of 1966’s cult sci-fi classic Fantastic Voyage.

Emmerich, who recently finished next March’s 10,000 B.C., was attached to a Voyage remake in the ’90s, but the project became a casualty of the disappointment that was Godzilla — until the director read a new script treatment by National Treasure screenwriters Marianne and Cormac Wibberley. Whatever Emmerich read convinced him a new Voyage could be successful after all, and the film is now set to be released by Fox, with the Wibberleys in negotiations to write the script.

The original, you may recall, starred Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasence in the story of a team of scientists who are miniaturized and injected into a scientist’s body in order to repair a blood clot in his brain. Emmerich’s first attempt at a new Voyage was to take place 30 years after the events of the original film, but it’s unclear which direction the new script will take.
