Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly to Remake the FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR
“Flight of the Navigator wasn’t a seminal movie of my childhood but I remember liking it and the original meant a lot to Colin as a kid, so it’s really his baby. It’ll be good to have some balance so it’s not two fanboys writing the movie.”Interesting, but good to hear. Flight of the Navigator (directed by Randal Kleiser in 1986) is a story about a young boy, played originally by Joey Cramer, who discovers a sleek metallic spacecraft from another part of our universe that he takes for a ride around the world as government agents chase him down. Ever since the premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this January, Trevorrow and Connolly have lined up a number of projects, including selling another untitled script to Disney, setting up indie Intelligent Life next, and Connolly working on an unnamed Pixar project. Now we know that the quote:
“One upcoming project, I will say, will probably create a good deal of ire against me on the Internet when people find out what it is. So, I just want to say in advance that I promise you, for all those who love the mythology that I will be tackling, trust that I love it as much as you do. And I will respect it, and hopefully make it not suck.”wasn’t related to Star Wars.
