Disney is looking to shoot David Fincher's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo in Australia. The country is offering a thirty percent locations rebate, which would make it worth close to $30 Million dollars if they decide to shoot the film there. Previous reports that Brad Pitt would star in the film have been reported false.
Scott Burns wrote the script, which based on Jules Verne's classic novel that centered on the adventures of Captain Nemo and his ship the Nautilus. No cast information has been released.
If the studio decides to take the project down under, production would likely take place at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland and Fox Studios in Sydney. The project would make the film the biggest production to ever take place in Australia.
No production schedule has been confirmed.
