A remake of "Fantastic Voyage" is being filmed.

 Guillermo del Toro, director.

Which means it's only 40% likely to happen. Del Toro is notorious for being attached to/announced for movies that never happen or that he drops out of: The HobbitFrankenstein, PinocchioAt the Mountains of Madness, etc. etc. IMDb doesn't even list Fantastic Voyage for him, although it lists both Pinocchio and a remake of Nightmare Alley, both of which haven't gone before the camera as of yet.

Might explain this conflicting Youtube video, I can't confirm.

Yes, announcing the movie is pretty much the entire masturbatory experience for Del Toro--It never really matters if he never actually gets around to filming it.

He's had a few arthouse discoveries, two flops, one Oscar, and helped destroy one of the biggest franchises in Hollywood, why are we supposed to get excited about him, again?

(And pretty sure the Fantastic Voyage project is an ancient relic left over from sixteen years ago, when everyone was so excited about the news that somebody was remaking "Rollerball" at the same time as Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes" opened, they thought there would be a new "craze" for 60's-70's scifi remakes:  Bryan Singer spent years threatening to still do that "Logan's Run" remake nobody else wanted to do, and after every single narcissistic action star in Hollywood wanted to play the Gunfighter in a new "Westworld", we know what eventually happened to that one.  :D)
