LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Disney is readying a relaunch of the 1986 sci-fi adventure movie “Flight of the Navigator.” It has hired “Wild Hogs” scribe Brad Copeland to write the remake.

The original movie told the story of a 12-year-old boy (Joey Cramer) who is abducted by an alien spacecraft in 1978 and reappears eight years later, still the same age and with no memory of what happened. NASA scientists discover a connection between the boy and a downed spacecraft and try to exploit the boy, who ultimately escapes with the ship and attempts to reunite with his family.

The movie, which also featured Sarah Jessica Parker and Paul Reubens, grossed only $17 million theatrically, but was later rediscovered on VHS, becoming a cult hit.
