Director David Fincher recently confirmed that his upcoming project 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo will be his first 3D endeavor. We reported back in May that David Fincher was taking over the directing duties on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo.
"I mean, you know Rendezvous with Rama is a great story that has an amazing role for Morgan Freeman who is an amazing actor and would be amazing in this thing. The question was can we get a script that's worthy of Morgan and can we get a script that is worthy of Arthur C. Clarke and can we do all of that in an envelope that will allow the movie to take the kinds of chances that it wants to take. Because we want to make a movie where kids go out of the theatre and instead of buying an action figure they buy a telescope. That was the hope. The hope is, let's get people interested in the fucking movie. So there have been people that have been interested in this idea and we have never been able to get a script. So the answer is, you know, is the story good enough, is the script the best telling of the story, is there an undeniable person to hang it on, is it technologically feasible. All those things come into play."
David Fincher is currently working on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which arrives in theaters on December 21. He did mention that it might be some time before he delves into an American version of the sequel The Girl Who Played with Fire since a script hasn't been written yet, and star Daniel Craig still has James Bond 23 on the horizon:
"I believe that there's a script that has to be written for the second movie. We have to have an audience that wants to see a second movie. We have to make room for another Bond movie. So there's a lot of elements that come into play."
Although he remains attached to these and several other projects, the director was coy about which would be his next directorial outing:
"I think that there's a lot of movies that could be my next film."
