New " 20000 Leagues under the Sea : Captain Nemo " movie coming soon ?

You may have heard about this 20000 Leagues under the sea prequel that Disney want to produce. Well, it seems that they really want to do it, and as soon as possible!

The movie will not be a "remake" of the unforgettable Richard Fleischer's movie, but essentially a Nautilus origin story, covering the construction and launch of Captain Nemo's nuclear-powered sub. Good idea or not? It's going to be hard to find an actor as good as James Mason to play Captain Nemo, but if you want to know more about this project, check this Empire article.

Well I'm certainly interested in hearing more about this project and I hope that it's not only true, but that they'll also do it well!

I really love Jules Verne's work, and 20000 Leagues is one of my favorites.
