David Goyer Adds “Worked On James Cameron’s FANTASTIC VOYAGE” To His Linkedin Profile

No sleeping for this guy.

It's too bad David Goyer so frequently turns in lackluster work because the guy gets a LOT of writing done. If he were at all awesome, we'd be in hog heaven, which is populated with pigs, yes, but also has the best movies of all the heavens.

Goyer has now been hired to write a treatment for a Fantastic Voyage remake. You know, the movie where scientists shrink down to white blood cell size and have adventures inside some guy's poop chute. I mean, other stuff happens too, but whether it's Innerspace or a Mr. Show sketch, this sort of thing usually boils down to poop chute antics at one point or another. Who can resist?

This would be for producer James Cameron, who has been trying to get the movie off the ground for some time, stymied at each attempt by his lack of Hollywood clout. It was at one point going to be directed by Shawn Levy, but that was back in 2011 and probably is no longer the case. Even Paul Greengrass and Roland Emmerich have looked at the project.

And tons of writers have given it a shot as well. Along with James Cameron, Marianne and Cormac Wibberley, Shane Salerno, and even good 'ol Laeta Kalogridis have tried and failed to crack the difficult modern action spectacle-poop chute ratio.

Can Goyer pull it off? Probably not. Will they make a movie of it anyway? I don't see why not.
