'Fantastic Voyage' Wants Hugh Jackman in Lead


Hugh Jackman


While 20th Century Fox is still sorting out 'The Wolverine', Jackman may join Shawn Levy in the re-imagining of the 1966 film.

While things are still messy over at "The Wolverine", Hugh Jackman may use the spare time to star in "Fantastic Voyage". The actor reportedly is director Shawn Levy's top choice to star in the remake of the 1966 film after they worked together in "Real Steel" and got along well.

Excited on the tone of the movie which has a dramatic love story, Levy signed up as the director of "Voyage" earlier this year although it doesn't have a green light yet. The first movie follows a team of scientists shrunk into a ship in an attempt to save a colleague's life. The re-imagining is using a script by Shane Salerno and Laeta Kalogridis who are expected to turn up the new draft soon.

Producer James Cameron, together with 20th Century Fox, are planning to shoot the film using native stereoscopic 3D, the same technology used for "Avatar". Cameron is also busy writing the screenplays for "Avatar 2" and "Avatar 3" which will be shot back-to-back for December 2014/2015 releases.

In the meantime, "Wolverine" is due to start production this year but director Darren Aronofsky dropped out in March and a new one is yet signed despite talks with Duncan Jones and David Slade. Plus, the script is set in Japan which recently was struck with earthquake.
