Fox 2000 is updating the Irwin Allen-created Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Justin Haythe (The Clearing) has been set to write the script.
In the story, the world's most advanced submarine is sent on a deep-sea salvage hunt, inadvertently bringing aboard a predatory organism from the ocean floor.
Walter Pidgeon starred in the 1961 original. "Voyage" was also a '60s ABC TV series starring Richard Basehart and David Hedison.
