Bryan Singer

A new 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was just one of those films that failed to take off. One reboot from Disney that was to be directed by David Fincher failed to secure the funding and could not agree on where to shoot the film. But Fox was also interested in reviving the project, and last May it gained X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer announced that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea would be his next project.

Now we have a start time. According to a new report, Singer will begin shooting his adaptation of the Jules Verne novel this fall. More on the story after the jump.

Bryan Singer

Bryan Singer is now in the post-production stage of X-Men: Apocalypse, which is rumored to mark the end of a franchise he has overseen for the better part of a decade. But he also has ventured outside of the mutant world by helming Superman Returns, and the historical-thriller Valkyrie. But now it looks like the director will be taking on a whole new adventure that will take him to depths of the sea.

According to a new report, Singer has announced 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as his next project following X-Men: Apocalypse. More on this story below.

David Fincher’s ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ May Take Production To Australia; Brad Pitt Probably Won’t Star [Updated]

David Fincher

When last we heard about David Fincher‘s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, Disney decided to put the film on hold for financial reasons. John Carter was a huge blow to the live-action department causing Disney to draft some new plans for some of their other riskier live-action films. Not even the casting of Brad Pitt or an “older A-list star” could convince them to move forward with the project.

There was a three-month production pause for the film when Disney decided to pull back on the project. During that time, Andrew Kevin Walker polished the Steven Zallian draft. Now that we are past the three-month pause, there is still no word on when Disney can give Fincher the go ahead to produce the film.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Disney is still trying to recuperate from the massive financial loss of John Carter. Their live-action department has been less than stellar as of late, so it’s really no surprise that they are holding off on making yet another expensive live-action film. Or maybe they are waiting to see what happens with The Lone Ranger before they start production for the remake of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

The film, which will be directed by David Fincher, is currently being put on hold for now. Variety reports that during the three-month production pause, Andrew Kevin Walker will be making improvements to Steven Zallian’s script.

Jules Verne - Google

I know this is coming late in the day, but I couldn’t let this occasion pass without mentioning it: Today marks what would be Jules Verne‘s 183rd birthday.

As with many special occasions, Google has created one of their popular doodles in celebration, this one being an interactive nautical theme referencing the author’s popular novel, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.

There’s a lever on the right side of the logo that allows you to control the doodle submarine, but what I didn’t realize is that, according to The Telegraph, if you view it on an iPad or iPhone, you can tilt the device to have the water level move in any direction you want!

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Armageddon vs. Deep Impact. Volcano vs. Dante’s Inferno. These are just a couple of the known cinematic battles that have taken place over the years when two movies of almost identical content matter are produced and released around the same time.

Recently we’ve heard about Disney’s plans to make a new movie based on the Jules Verne classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, which was originally set to be directed by McG, but will now be delivered by a one David Fincher. Now comes word that 20th Century Fox is developing their very own adaptation of the underwater classic to compete.

‘Se7en’ Director David Fincher To Replace McG On Disney’s ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’

The Nautilus

In January of 2009, it was announced that director McG, hot off of his work on the not-so-well-received Termination Salvation, would be taking on a new adaptation of Jules Verne‘s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for Disney. Ten months later, the project had been killed off.

Now it looks like Disney has found their replacement, and it is quite the step up on the directorial chain. The studio is set to name David Fincher the new captain of this underwater adventure. Fincher is best known for his psychological crime thriller Se7en, as well as Fight Club, Zodiac, and his recent multi-Academy Award nominee, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Proposed McG ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ Movie Killed Off

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Not much was known of the new Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea movie that was well on its way to us, but one might imagine that Disney had plans of bringing another massive water-filled adventure much like their Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. They had gotten so far as to hire Terminator Salvation director McG to helm the flick, and names like Will Smith were rumored for the role of Captain Nemo. None of this matters anymore now, as Disney has slammed the brakes on with force and stopped all forward progress on the project.

The movie was set to tell an origins tale of the fabled Captain Nemo and the building of his ship, the Nautilus. It was actually on the fast track at one point, but it appears that the controversial firing of popular chairman Dick Cook may have knocked it off its course for the time being. The original 1954 film starred Kirk Douglas and it was Disney’s very first live-action film production.

20,000 LeaguesDisney has put a new version of the Jules Verve classic titled 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo on the fast track and signed Terminator Salvation director McG to helm it.

Not many details are known, but the movie will supposedly follow Captain Nemo and the creation of his ship, The Nautilus. It’s being written by Bill Marsilli (Deja Vu).

McG is also in discussions to oversee development and direct the next film in the Terminator trilogy, which is a surprise to me, as I thought he was already in as director on all three. This likely means that Captain Nemo will be one fast-moving project, one Disney apparently wants THIS year.
