Paul Greengrass took a look and bailed. But now, finally, the 3D remake of 1966 sci-fi
is to be helmed by Shawn Levy.
The Night Of The Museum director, whose robo smash-up Real Steel hits screens later this year, has signed to direct the redo, which follows the same story as the original.
Which is: a group of scientists shrink themselves and enter a colleague’s body in order to save him from a blood clot. Ah, the wonders of technology.
Deadline report that once the scientists enter their colleague’s body, the film will be almost exclusively CGI – as opposed to camera teams actually violating somebody’s intimate crevices, we assume.
Most interestingly, could Hugh Jackman be about to sign on to star? He’s the lead in Levy’s Real Steel , and the pair are reportedly looking to work together on an "untitled action/adventure project". Watch this (inner) space.
