Strap yourself in to your nearest UFO because a Flight Of The Navigator remake is on its way! For the uninitiated, Navigator tells the tale of Joey Freeman, an average 12-year-old kid who wakes up after a fall to find himself having travelled eight years into the future and not aged at all. The lucky bastard.
It's a wonderful tale of abduction and adventure that didn't really set the world alight upon its release in the 1980's, but has been deemed good enough for a remake anyway. The makers of the current film festival favorite Safety Not Guaranteed, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, will helm the project. But surely there are a number of other 80's classics which should have been remade ahead of this? Hollywood should check out the gallery above for some options.
