Could Shawn Levy and Hugh Jackman be the next dynamic movie duo like Tim Burton and Johnny Depp? It sure does seem that way. The two first worked together for October’s Real Steel and are also officially teaming up for a mystery flick written by Lost executive producer, Carlton Cuse. Not to mention that a sequel to Real Steel is already being written for the pair several months before the first even hits theaters. And now, Deadline is reporting that Levy is after Jackman for the leading role in his James Cameron-produced 3D remake of Fantastic Voyage.
The script for Fantastic Voyage, penned by Shane Salerno and Laeta Kalogridis, is due very soon and all seem very sure that it will get the greenlight from Fox. This remake has been in the works for quite some time now with Cameron himself even attempting a script back in 2007.
Based on the 1966 film, it follows a team of scientist who are shrunken and sent into the body of one of their ill colleagues.
