Safety Not Guaranteed Duo Working on Flight of the Navigator Remake

Variety is reporting that the duo behind Safety Not Guaranteed, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, have been hired by Disney to rewrite a remake of Flight of the Navigator, with Trevorrow being eyed to potentially direct. The 1986 film focused on a 12-year-old kid who disappears, only to return eight years later still the same age. Then there is a lot of fun stuff with an alien spacecraft that is shaped like a silver Nerf football. There are actually a few parallels to Safety Not Guaranteed. Maybe they'll get Aubrey Plaza to play a real deadpan alien.
