'Flight of the Navigator' remake could be 3D, says Colin Trevorrow

By and Simon Reynolds
Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow has hinted that his proposed remake of Flight of the Navigator could be in 3D.

The filmmaker, who is working on the Disney project with his Safety writer Derek Connolly, told Digital Spy that the sci-fi project is unlikely to be the next movie he directs.


Asked if he will remain faithful to the 1986 original, Trevorrow replied: "There's a question in it which I always thought was compelling. What if suddenly you woke up and your world was gone and your parents were old?

"There's something so scary about that for a kid. We know what the themes are and what characters we're going to be working with, but beyond that it's going to take a little while."

Trevorrow also voiced his enthusiasm for the 3D and CGI technology that wasn't available for Randal Kleiser's film, which sees a 12-year-old boy travel eight years into the future on an alien ship.

"I'm very interested in 3D. I'm very excited about 3D, whether it's with this film or one of the others we're working on," the director said. "I think it's a thrilling new way to watch films. Right now it feels like we're in the transition from black-and-white to colour, which took 20 years.

"Big, big movies are in 3D but we haven't reached a point yet where that's just what a movie is. Ten years from now hopefully we'll get rid of the glasses and it'll just create depth to what we're watching and it won't be a gimmick."

Trevorrow's Safety Not Guaranteed opens in UK cinemas on December 26.
