Fantastic Voyage is going to be huge. There’s no word yet on whether James Cameron is building a special ship to go inside the human body for production design research, but the promise of a massive budget should take the 1966 sci-fi flick into the big leagues of action not seen since the “Disney Body Wars” attraction.

In order to deliver that, Cameron apparently wants Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier to take the reigns on the project – which is all but ready to roll in 2011 with a near-finished script (from Armageddon and Alien vs Predator: Requiem writer Shane Salerno) and heavy design work from Cameron’s Avatar team.

Instead of calling up the production designers on Honey I Shrunk the Kids, they’ll be going totally CGI once the team is inside the body. That prospect means that instead of re-casting Raquel Welch’s role, the least they could do is spend the money to digitally drop the younger version of her into the new movie. If they refuse, they should cast Christina Hendricks. [Deadline Tampa]
