A New Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Movie?

     So how about a new Voyage movie?  There are a wide range of attitudes among Voyage fans about whether or not this is a good idea.  What if the movie turned out really bad?  What if it weren't true to the characters?  What if it ended up being a bunch of CGI eye-candy and little else?
