Disney’s Long In Development ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ Prequel Reportedly Moving Forward

It has been quite some time since we have heard anything about Disney’s long-delayed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea prequel titled Captain Nemo. Now, thanks to a new report that will change.

According to my colleagues over at HN Entertainment, the film is back in active development after years of silence, and crew member changes.

It isn’t known at this time if Logan director James Mangold is still on board on the project. The most recent draft of the Captain Nemo script was reportedly penned Sebastian Gutierrez (Snakes on a PlaneGothika). The film was originally in development back in 2013 with David Fincher directing, but he couldn’t find an approach that worked with the studio’s commercial aims.

Captain Nemo is expected to provide an origin story of sorts for the antihero character, who was first introduced in Jules Verne’s 1870 story Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and later brought to the screen in Disney’s 1954 film of the same name. Oscar-nominated A Star is Born and The Verdict actor James Mason portrayed Nemo in that film, which also earned a pair of Academy Awards for its special effects and art direction.
