New 'Fantastic Voyage' Gets a Director
According to Variety, 20th Century Fox has recruited Emmerich to direct the studio's remake of the 1966 sci-fi favorite "Fantastic Voyage." Also being brought on board are Marianne and Cormac Wibberley ("National Treasure") to write the script.
Emmerich was a logical choice to direct the project both because of his experience with large scale effects-driven epics and the fact that he's made a lot of money for 20th Century Fox on "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow."
His other credits include "Godzilla" and "The Patriot," plus next spring's "10,000 B.C."
