Flight of the Navigator Reboot Coming From Henson Co and Lionsgate

Quote:
The Henson Co. is developing and producing the new iteration for Lionsgate.

Flight of the Navigator is ready to soar once again.

Joe Henderson, the showrunner of Fox’s supernatural show Lucifer, has been hired to write a reboot of the 1986 kids sci-fi adventure movie that is now set up at Lionsgate.

The Henson Co. is on board to produce.

The movie told of a 12-year-old boy who is abducted by a UFO and reappears eight years later, at the exact same age and with no memories of what happened. When NASA officials spot a connection between the boy and a recovered UFO and try to ensnare him, the kid tries to unravel the intergalactic mystery while trying to reunite with his family.

Randal Kleiser, best known for directing Grease, helmed the movie, which was released by Disney but made by early 1980s outfit Producers Sales Organization (the company was also behind The Outsiders and The NeverEnding Story).

Disney tried reimaging the title in 2009 — at one point, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly worked on the script — but that version didn't achieve liftoff.

Henderson's Lucifer is based on the DC/Vertigo comic and airs on Fox. The third season premieres Oct. 2.

Henderson also served as a writer and co-executive producer on White Collar, Graceland and Almost Human. He has an overall deal with Warner Bros. and sold a spec script titled In the Land of Imagined Things to Disney.

Henderson is repped by CAA, Stan Spry at The Cartel and Hirsch Wallerstein.

Maybe they could get Sarah Jessica-Parker to cameo?
