THR: Director Shawn Levy Considers Exiting 'Fantastic Voyage' as Will Smith Courted to Star [FVOYG]

Levy is said to want an A-list star to topline Voyage, and Fox is not necessarily wedded to the idea of a huge name (and huge salary). A source says Levy has set a meeting with Will Smith in the next couple weeks. If the actor agrees to sign on, Levy would almost certainly stay with Voyage, and Fox likely would not flinch at casting one of the few proven box office draws. If Smith passes (or Fox can’t make a deal), and another mutually-agreeable star can't be found quickly, sources say Levy would be inclined make another film his next directing project.
