Disney’s second Flight


Well-worn VHS classic “Flight of the Navigator” is getting the reboot treatment.

Brad Copeland (“Wild Hogs”) is writing the remake, which is being produced by Mandeville partners David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.

The 1986 original (which tanked at the box-office but found life on home video) told the story of a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by an alien spacecraft in 1978 and reappears eight years later, still the same age and with no memory of what happened. NASA scientists discover a connection between the boy and a downed spacecraft and try to exploit the boy, who ultimately escapes with the ship and attempts to reunite with his family. Veronica Cartwright, Cliff De Young and a young Sarah Jessica Parker starred.

The ship used in the movie can be found in a boneyard at the Disney MGM Studios Theme Park at Walt Disney World in Florida… wonder if they’re gonna get it out of storage for this one?
