Director David Fincher (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Se7en) has always been known best for his dark, hard R dramas and crime thrillers. So his next project may come as a bit of a shock to those who haven't been following it: 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Captain Nemo. I'm not sure why we need the subtitle. The project has been in the crock pot for years now, with significant question as to whether or not it would get made. Now, it seems that the wind has picked up.
In order to give Disney incentive to film the movie, the Australian government has decided to give the film tax breaks to film there, tax breaks adding up to a whopping 20$ million dollars saved. That's nothing to spit at, and Disney seems to have realized it. Financing for the film has been secured, and location scouting has begun.
Other details about the film are still scant. Brad Pitt was originally going to play Captain Nemo, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Who would you like to see play the legendary sailor?
