Shawn Levy Takes a Fantastic Voyage

Coolio is not the only one about to ride on a Fantastic Voyage, as 20th Century Fox has finally got their man to helm the brand new James Cameron production that has been gaining buzz despite the challenge of a whopping budget.

Shawn Levy has been tapped to take the role of director for the remake, giving the feature what could be a light-hearted tone, given Levy's experience with his hit Night at the Museum movies and the Steve Martin family comedy Cheaper by the Dozen. Fantastic Voyage will be yet another 3D feature.

Deadline has the scoop about the film, which is a new take on an old favorite, where a crack team of scientists decide to take the plunge into a dear colleague's body to save his life.

Levy replaces Bourne director Paul Greengrass, who was briefly attached to the film.
