Bryce Dallas Howard has directed several episodes of The Mandalorian, and is back behind the scenes for the Flight of the Navigator reboot.
Flight of the navigator, or Flight of the Navigator, is a 1986 science fiction film distributed by Disney and directed by Randal Kleiser, with a screenplay by Mark H. Baker.
The story is set in 1978 and tells us about a 12 year old boy named David, who during a dark night while searching the woods for his brother Jeff, has an accident that leaves him unconscious.
When he woke up, it was only a few minutes for him, but in the whole world it had been eight years. During this time many things have changed, initially he was reported missing and instead his family moved. Things didn’t stop getting worse, because NASA would also start to persecute him thinking he had been kidnapped.
Disney is going to save The Flight of the Navigator to reboot the film directed and produced by Bryce Dallas Howard, who has recently been heavily involved with the company that directed several episodes of The Mandalorian.
The project is meant to launch live on the Disney Plus streaming platform, and it’s well known that in addition to Dallas, Howard will also feature Justin Springer and John Swartz, Howard’s partners at the production company Nine Muses.
This isn’t the first time Disney has tried to review Flight of the Navigator, since 2009 Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly were working on a script, but they ended up losing the rights to Lionsgate.
Lionsgate also tried to put out its own version with Joe Henderson, host of Lucifer, but that film wasn’t made with the rights to return to Disney either.
In the new version of The Navigator’s Flight with Bryce Dallas Howard, they will change the protagonist, who this time will be a female character, although it is unclear if they will change her age as well. We hope to hear new details about this project soon.
The new film, which marks Howard’s feature directorial debut, is scheduled to premiere exclusively on Disney Plus.
Baker, Michael Burton and Matt MacManus. The family sci-fi adventure film follows 12-year-old David Freeman (Joey Cramer), who collapses after falling in the woods, only to be kidnapped by the alien spaceship that transported him from 1978 to 1986.But gets tangled up with the police and NASA along the way.
The filmmakers will produce the reboot alongside Justin Springer and John Swartz, who are Howard’s partners at his production company Nine Muses. Howard’s film won’t be the first attempt to remake “Flight of the Navigator”—as Colin Trevorrow (who directed Howard in “Jurassic World” and “Jurassic World: Dominion”) and Derek Connolly tied the knot on a project on behalf of Disney in 2009. Also, in 2017, Lionsgate and the Henson company announced a reboot with Joe Henderson as writer. None of the projects came to fruition.
Known for his onscreen work in the “Jurassic World” trilogy, “The Village” and “The Help,” Howard has also been a prolific director, with the 2019 documentary “Dads,” two episodes of “The Mandalorian” and an episode of the upcoming series ” The Book of Boba Fett” under his belt.
Howard was replaced by WME, Management 360 and attorney PJ Shapiro.
