Well-worn VHS classic â€œFlight of the Navigatorâ€ is getting the reboot treatment.
Brad Copeland (â€œWild Hogsâ€) 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 Floridaâ€¦ wonder if theyâ€™re gonna get it out of storage for this one?
