Cameron is producing the sci-fi adventure project with his Lightstorm Entertainment partners Jon Landau and Rae Sanchini.
David Goyer is joining James Cameron on The Fantastic Voyage, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.
Goyer, who has guided the screen story for The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel, has been tapped to write the treatment for the remake of the 1966 sci-fi classic which is being made by Fox and Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment.
Cameron, Jon Landau, and Rae Sanchini are producing through their Lightstorm banner. Goyer will also executive produce.
Voyage revolves around a team of scientists who are shrunk to atomic size and sent in a miniature submarine inside the body of a scientist to save his life. The project has been quiet since 2011 but Goyer's involvement kick-starts and will re-engineer what the studio and producers hope to be an event-sized tentpole. It is also now placing the project on the fast track.
Goyer wrote the story and is currently writing the screenplay for the Warner Bros. sequel to Man of Steel, the so-far-untitled Batman-Superman movie. He also wrote the treatment for Sandman, adapting the DC/Vertigo series as a possible directing vehicle for Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He is attached to direct The Breach for Lionsgate.
