Guillermo del Toro's Fantastic Voyage Remake to Film Next Fall

Fantastic Voyage is now scheduled to prep in spring 2018 and start production by fall 2018 at the latest. Well, one director finds himself in an envious situation, director Guillermo del Toro, the mind behind Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy, took a break from the Fantastic Voyage, a remake of the 1965 film, that was in production to focus on his current film that will hit festivals this year, The Shape of Water.

He is now putting the finishing touches to fantasy drama The Shape of Water, about a mute government laboratory worker who comes across a secret experiment involving a mysterious creature. Early buzz for the movie has been heating up, and it'll have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, which begins on August 31st, before heading to the Toronto Film Festival and possibly Telluride-all three of which are major precursors for Oscar glory. And indeed awards season is a marathon, not a sprint, so if del Toro was busy prepping sets, casting, and developing Fantastic Voyage at the same time, he may not be able to be on the awards circuit in a way that would give Shape of Water the best chance at succeeding-campaigning, like it or not, is a necessary step towards winning awards. So expect to see del Toro out on the circuit throughout the fall and, if Shape of Water is as good as folks are saying, possibly up through next March's Oscars ceremony.

It is not yet known if the delay will push the Fantastic Voyage reboot release back to 2020, but sources insist del Toro remains fully committed to the film. Cameron, Jon Landau, and Rae Sanchini are producing with Goyer in line to executive produce.
