Flight of the Navigator Reboot Finds Writers/Director
Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly are taking off in the remake.
Disney’s remake of their “Flight of the Navigator”, in the works since 2009, has finally gotten off the ground with the duo of Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) set to write the remake, with Trevorrow also directing.
Apparently this is a dream come true for the duo, with Connolly saying:
‘Flight of the Navigator’ wasn’t a seminal movie of my childhood but I remember liking it and the original meant a lot to Colin as a kid, so it’s really his baby. It’ll be good to have some balance so it’s not two fanboys writing the movie.
Well good for them!
I know the original starred a 12-year old kid who stumbles across an alien spaceship and goes for a joyride, but why not switch it up with “Safety Not Guaranteed” star Aubrey Plaza in the remake? Just sayin’. She’s cute as hell. And sassy, too.
