Will Smith Wanted For ‘Fantastic Voyage’ Reboot

Will SmithReports are swirling about Will Smith being courted for a big-budgeted James Cameron-produced remake of the 1966 sci-fi flick Fantastic Voyage.

In the film, a diplomat is nearly assassinated. In order to save him, a submarine is shrunken to microscopic size and injected into his blood stream with a small crew of scientists.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a source says Smith will meet with the loosely attached director Shawn Levy and the films producers in the next couple of weeks. The film is being held together by the prospect of Will Smith signing on. If he passes, and another high profile star can’t be found to replace him, the film is likely not going to happen.

Levy’s film credits include Night at the Museum movies, Cheaper By the Dozen and Date Night.
