While David Fincher awaits the script for The Girl Who Played with Fire, the follow-up to his 2011 thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, he has decided to move forward on Walt Disney Pictures adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo.
Right now, Walt Disney has placed a three-month hold on the director as the studio decides whether or not they want to move forward with the property. The film has not yet received a green light.
An older A-list actor is being sought for the title role of Captain Nemo. May we suggest George Clooney? Or is that too obvious?
