Shawn Levy to Helm James Cameron's Remake of Fantastic Voyage

Shawn Levy, who most recently directed the Hugh Jackman sci-fi actioner Real Steel, has been chosen by producer James Cameron and 20th Century Fox to helm the remake of Fantastic Voyage.
Writes Deadline's Mike Fleming, " I’m told that Levy has boarded the re-imagining of the 1966 original about a team of scientists shrunk into a ship in an attempt to save a colleague's life. Fox and Cameron have been moving cautiously on a big budget film that, from early in the script once they go inside the body, is almost exclusively CGI. The script is by Shane Salerno, with Laeta Kalogridis working on a polish. The directing job has been one of the big open slots out there since Paul Greengrass ended a flirtation with the picture last year. I’m told that helmers like Darren Aronofsky, Timur Bekmambetov, Jonathan Mostow and Louis Leterrier met with Cameron. Levy is an unexpected choice, but he is a Fox favorite who is broadening beyond comedies into bigger fare."
