Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, the breakout duo behind Safety Not Guaranteed, are slated to rewrite the remake for Disney’s Flight of the Navigator.
The original 1986 film told the story of a boy who mysteriously vanishes, only to show up eight years later without having aged a day. The original picture starred Joey Cramer, Sarah Jessica Parker and Veronica Cartwright, while Paul Reubens was the voice of the UFO’s pilot.
David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman are producing the remake. We’ll be sure to update you when more information about the upcoming Disney film is released.
