James Cameron's newest pet project, a reboot of the groundbreaking 1966 sci fi epic Fantastic Voyage could have Hugh Jackman on board. According to Deadline, Shawn Levy, the director of the Fox re-imagining has his eye on the Wolverine. Word is they got along pretty well on Real Steel, the DreamWorks film set for release October 7.
Fantastic Voyage tells the story of a group of scientists miniaturized in a ship and injected into the body of a diplomat in order to save his life after an assassination attempt.
