Flight of the Navigator Remake?

SFX is reporting that Disney has hired Colin Teverrow and Derek Connolly to write a remake of the 1980s classic Flight of the Navigator, the movie about a boy from the 70s who is abducted by aliens only to be returned eight years later to find everything has changed but himself.

Personally I loved this movie as a kid, and really don’t need to see a remake. But there you go, it’s probably going to happen anyway. The good news is that that Teverrow is reportedly a huge fan of the original, so hopefully he’s able to keep everything that made this movie great.
