Bryan Singer Will Shoot ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ This Fall

Rick Sordelet and Dan Studney wrote the screenplay adaptation, working from a story they both created with Bryan Singer. The director is expected to start prepping 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea right away, while putting the finishing touches on X-Men: Apocalypse before that superhero adventure hits theaters on May 27. Bryan Singer will also produce with Jason Taylor, who runs the director's Bad Hat Harry production company.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was originally published as a number of serialized stories between 1869 and 1870, with a deluxe illustrated edition debuting in 1971. The plot centers on Captain Nemo and the crew of his submarine, the Nautilus, as they embark on several undersea adventures. There have been a number of adaptations over the years, including film adaptations in 1916 and perhaps the best known version of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1954, which starred Kirk Douglas and Peter Lorre.

Bryan Singer Directing New ‘X-Men’ Movie for 2018?

Bryan Singer Directing New ‘X-Men’ Movie for 2018?

Earlier this month, we reported that director Bryan Singer is returning to Montreal for reshoots on his upcoming superhero adventure X-Men: Apocalypse, which is slated for release on May 27, 2016. After that sequel hits theaters, many have wondered what 20th Century Fox has planned for the X-Men franchise, since this adventure will close out the current trilogy that includes 2011's X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Today we have a new report from Journal de Montreal, which claims that Bryan Singer is coming back to Montreal in 2017 to direct a new X-Men film that will hit theaters in 2018.

This news hasn't been confirmed by 20th Century Fox yet, but the news of Bryan Singer filming another X-Men movie in Montreal isn't terribly surprising. The filmmaker shot both X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal. Still, we don't know which actors from X-Men: Apocalypse are coming back, or who is writing the screenplay at this time. Heroic Hollywood claims that this project will center on the cast of this trilogy, with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender being eyed to return. Simon Kinberg wrote the scripts for both X-Men: Days of Future Past and the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, but we'll have to wait and see if he will be brought back for this untitled X-Men adventure.

Disney has been developing their own version of this classic story, with their adaptation entitled 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo. David Fincher was attached to direct for some time, but he ended up bowing out in favor of making Gone Girl. We reported last August that Disney was planning on starting principal photography sometime this year, but we haven't heard anything about that project since then. It is believed, but not confirmed, that this version of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea is being set up at 20th Century Fox.
